Cracks Began to Appear In My Reverie

Written for Haiku Heights Prompt: Mystic and OSI Prompt: Fancy

Eyes meet , smile stems
You envy and call it a fancy,
For me its mystic..


Written for OSI Prompt: Fancy

First a haiku..keeping with my own passion

Earth cuddles in
A blanket of clouds, Moon looks
On, fancies warmth…


Cracks Began to Appear In My Reverie

Deep inside him
Somewhere, lives a giver
But with a weak voice, who
Appears to be getting snubbed
By the surroundings…
Relationships get weaved
Offering threads of trust
But then others entangle
Yarns of selfishness
Not able to make the difference
Continues to be an
Arrogant child, with soft
Soul perhaps made of wax
That can melt on
A little hint of warmth
Which stays away
Failing to penetrate
The thick walls built around
By the sycophants
Yet, wants to explore skies
Of love and humility
But then wings of gold
May be heavier
For such a fanciful flight
Wish he could make it
At least once
Won’t mind lending him
Some wings of thoughts
Capable of taking him
To newer, happier skies
But will he ever ask…
May be not, doesn’t even know
For, it’s not him, but I
Who have been weaving
Such dreams for him
Without realizing, that
He has his own dreams
To follow, to pursue
And it took time but then
Cracks began to appear
In my reverie, and I have tried
And have quietly detached myself
To slip back into my own space
May God help me weave
My own happier dreams
Wings of thoughts will help me
Explore depths and heights
Of a shimmering new world
Yes, it has taken me eons to break
High walls of illusion
And take a leap..
Ah, finally I’m breathing freedom..
It’s not my fancy, it’s for real

  21. Oh- I loved them all- the haikus and the longer verse. The longer poem reminded me of what I want for my daughter isn't necesarily what she wants...wise words. Loved the line:
    " Arrogant child, with soft
    Soul perhaps made of wax
    That can melt on
    A little hint of warmth"

    Great job!!!

  26. In your mystic haiku I get the impression of a spouse observing that little spark that flows between two people across a crowded room, viz other spouse and AN Other individual, and the little green monster rearing its head...

  27. smiles are always mystic for me...

    I admire your love for the moon! IT has always been a beautiful subject of your haikus Ramesh!

    And your poem that followed, I am quite impressed and i could relate so much to your thoughts...


    Very well said Ramesh! You're one of the best I have been reading lately! :-)
