hidden from the world
great eye silently observes
nothing escapes it

music in nature
singing beauties in the wild
natural music


Hmm, how many times do I listen carefully to the music around me? As in, really listen carefully? I only noticed it when I am forced to still my mind, the sounds of birds, bugs rustling leaves and squirrels. And many others which I have yet to identify…

You’ll be in big trouble if you ever make that mistake. I did. Let’s just say it did not turn out well.

rupture

calm in the centre
giant eye glares at humans
tempest is coming


When I saw this image, all I can think of is Sauron from the movie trilogy, Lord of the Rings, except it is all green. Hence the blatant plagiarism of “great eye”. Haha.

While I would not call myself an environmental activist, I am concerned about the direction we are heading – the future of the planet seems bleak.

sunlight surfs the waves
dyeing the ocean in warmth
like your love for me


I don’t think I’m the only one who sees the heart in this photo. And the sun does look like it is surfing, is it not? My imagination tends to run wild a bit sometimes, but I’m so happy it runs in a positive manner this time round.

untitled

I will not be trapped
by the four oppressing walls
but fly with the moon.


The desire to fly under the full moon, toward a destination, without any baggage. The best kind of flight ever. But the image is poetic in how it captures the full moon, the clouds and the birds, using the buildings as a kind of frame.

Acceptance

You keep one eye closed
to all the flaws found on me
when I bared myself.


I am revived during the holidays (Vesak Day, a Buddhist celebration in honour of life in our part of the world, in case you are wondering). Refreshed and ready to write again after the break!

And speaking of in honour of life, this is haiku which sprang to my mind almost immediately when I saw the image prompt. Can we ever accept people into our lives without finding faults and flaws? *shrugs*

I Write Her Weekly Haiku/Senryu Challenge #19 – 2nd Attempt

Untcvcccitled

Music

rhythmic melody
releases my tired soul through
sonorous rhythm


rhythmic melody
releases my tired soul through
melodious rhythm

This is the original haiku I wrote. If I have to confess, I prefer the original one rather than the one in second attempt because of the mirror parallel – I’m a big sucker for it. But at least, after a couple of friends pointed out that the last line contains 6 syllables rather than 5, I’m glad to announce “rhythm” is generally accepted as 2-syllable word 😀

Back story: my mind is in the gutter these days and I’m too tired to even figure out the number of syllables in a word. And this is also when howmanysyllables.com failed me because it listed “rhythm” as 1-syllable word…
