a New Year Haiku Trio

1

An other year is over,

Many days we have forgotten -

Dried up … like raindrops.

 

2

Do we remember?

The tears shed, laughter shared… Do we?

Yet, this is our life….

3

Another year is born.

Our chance to live again. Anew.

To be here. Fully.

The Day I was Born

The day I was born.

Truly, I can't remember.

All I know I'm here.

Endings

The pain is still there.

And as s for my suffering...

I know it will end.

Dry Rivers

How can you stop time?
As rivers turn to deserts...
You know all will end.

Escape from Ego: A Quintette

1

Abandoned by friends,

Shamed into peaceful solitude.

Seeking my refuge.

2

I lost all my pride.

Shameful was my arrogance.

I find emptiness.

3

These verses I write.

Aren't they the of cry of Ego?

Seeking permanence.

4

Afraid of itself.

Finding its true nothingness.

It ceases to lie.

5

I am sad but free,

Free from pretensions.

I am what I am!

Precious memories.

Cinders: A Haiku Trio

PASSION

A Persistent passion

Burns in the abandoned souls.

Forgotten are they.

DESIRE

A Raging desire.

Absorbs the purposeless minds,

Wasted is their life.

AWAKENING

Clinging to the world.

Blind to our impermanence.

Just cinders are left.

Silent Violence

A silent violence.

That closes the minds and hearts.

Those who don't listen.

The Longing

Words I can't translate,

Speaking an unknown language,

Longing in my core.

Hope in Light

The new dawn is born,

Sun is over horizon.

Hope in life, in light...

The Dark Night

I fear the dark night

The allure of sleep, forever.

I cannot escape.

Nothing Else Matters

We live and then die,

Our only certainty now.

Nothing else matters.

Summer Heat

I feel hot, so drained.

Inside dried and trapped outside...

By a veil of rays.

On Loneliness

We flee loneliness,

Afraid to face emptiness,

Deep in our beings.

Bline to the Sun

The clouds hide the sun,

 

Yet we know there is a sun.

 

Or do we really?

Futures Unknown ..

In futures unknown,

We must travel on our own,

Hoping tomorrow.

To the Lost Children of Syria

Nobody knew the name.

Of the child killed in Syria.

Only the number.

Jannah

I prayed to Jesus,

He led me to the Buddha,

I found my refuge...

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Nothing Special

A Buddhist feeling.

I'm just a human being.

I'm nothing special.

A Moment of Contemplation

In contemplation.

Finding self in nothingness...

A sad happiness

The Cycle of Life

The cycle of life:

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter:

Birth, decay, and death...

Lies off Pride

They, the lies of pride,

Exalt in our nothingness,

Burn our sanity!

I’m but a star child.

Born out of the emptiness

Beyond time and space

Nine Haikus in Memory of David

1

The star of David.,

The light of my dead brother

Whom I never knew.

2

It shines still today

During my darkest hours

Bringing back a hope.

3

Not to be afraid

To question what people say,

For life is vanity.

4

Life comes and it goes,

Our bodies deteriorate

And our minds do too.

5

David, where are you?

You died before I could know

What death really meant.

6

I never forgot

You were one day here with us.

But I never knew.

7

I still search for you

In my own ways I still seek you

My unknown brother.

8

Yes, I was too young.

To remember who you were..

Or get to know you

9

Your are the reason

I never stopped asking "Why?".

You're my guiding star.

Lost?

Lost again, am I?

Knowing but still denying

The call of my heart.

In Search of Perfect Peace

I sought perfection.

To find nothingness and death

Barren, perfect peace.

A Day of Rest?

Just a day of rest

I hoped for but never got.

Perhaps tomorrow?

Letting Go - A Haiku Trio

Hopes and dreams may die,

Now, a tree may yield no fruit.

Living on thru death.


Like our hopes and dreams,

A dying wish can give life,

To other beings.


And fresh hopes and dreams,

May grow from dwindling visions,

First we must let go.

Star Gazer

Stars light up the night

A boy stares above in awe

Are we all alone?
