MY 300TH POST..
Thanks to all... OSI, Haiku Heights,
Haiku My Heart, 3WW
Jingle Poetry Potluck...and all others who have
inspired and encouraged...
First a Haiku to celebrate with OSI... prompt 'Respect '
Wow, good to see you
Blessing my three hundredth, hey,
My respect and thanks..
And a Verse for OSI
I talk good of you
Oh, that could be my tact
I think good of you
That means I truly respect..
Now the Poem
World May Never See Another Epic..
Winds respected and carried with them
Myriad tales of travelers told by trees
And words spread slowly
Turning them into intriguing stories
Stories then got quietly whispered
In many of more than willing ears
Discerning minds with their imaginations
Kept on adding narration over the years
Years saw them getting transformed into
Epics of thousands and thousands of pages
Embellished by discerning souls on the way
Original authors from among ancient sages
Sages who spent years and years
Evolving into wisdom’s glowing rays
Spreading light, blessing humanity
One can’t find them around today
Today’s winds also don’t carry any tales
For none shares with trees things specific
It’s indeed a matter of grave concern
That world may never see another Epic..
Epic is a careful recording of journeys
Of lives undertaken by a few souls blessed
Wonder if one records one’s own life
With all ups & downs, could it be an Epic, yes..
Yes, but for that let one first win one’s own mind
And become as responsible as ancient kings
As brave as soldiers who conquered the evil
Then only the tales will be carried by winds…
Haiku for Haiku Heights .. prompt : Infatuation
Childhood in my heart,
Ah, magical moments of
