Carnival of Thoughts..

A big thank you to Rigel Ordinario of My Dreams Up Close for OSI Prompt.. and Meghana of Megzone for Haiku Heights Prompt.


Written for OSI: Carnival and Haiku Heights: Insomnia
and also shared with Haiku My Heart


Carnival of stars
I and Moon watch , at the end
Day comes dancing..



FOR OSI:

Carnival of Thoughts

Colours rain
Music floats, smiles bloom and
I watch from sidelines

I watch from sidelines
As the procession moves on
Dancing trees flank

Dancing trees flank
Clouds from above too cheer
Birds join carnival

Birds join carnival
Fluttering wings Of joy,
Flowers are happy

Flowers are happy
As butterflies seek to catch
Notes of music

Notes of music
Fingers move on strings, Tap
Keys in harmony

Keys in harmony
Procession picks up pace
I‘m pushed aside

I‘m pushed aside
Eyes shut themselves, I watch
Carnival of thoughts

Carnival of thoughts
No more on sidelines
I become music

I become music
My universe dances in verse
Hold me, God!

Hold me, God!
I bathe in ecstasy
Ah! Colours rain..

Hope you enjoyed the carnival as much as I did.. thanks for being here..

  10. The lines continue to 'ring' in the ear. A joy for the sense of sound, and sight. Please have a good start into the new week.

  13. This went to an excellent place. I was reminded of the Sufi whirling dirvish whose very act of dance is a devotion to G-d.

  16. The haiku was fun to read and your poem had an almost musical quality to it. I especially loved the line, "Flowers are happy." Made me happy to visit here. :)

  17. Your haikus feed into each other very well I think, one building on the ones before. The rhythm too, it kept getting stronger. I'm glad I stopped by from the OSI roundup and got to read this.

  27. I love the flow and journey through the universe ... delightful read with a great rhythm. I must remember where I read about starting the next stanza with the last line of the previous ... it has a ripple effect. Starting small and growing - taking the reader along a magical ride. Thank you for sharing and pointing this particular piece out to me. Namaste ~~ becca

  30. A friend Surindernath of blog Mr. Moonlight Flipp Flopp

    with the link http://snatsleepwalkers.wordpress.com/ asked me to put this comment here..

    "As a student of Literature for the last 30 + years, I rate this among the best creative work by Indian poets. What a combination of Cosmic Ecstasy and Romanticism."

    I feel myself so grateful for this..I just wrote it as it came.. a chain in hiku format..didn't know it would get such a comment... RS:)
