A Chain Unfolds Itself..


April 11, 2012
Written for Haiku Heights
April Challenge..



Prompt: Possible

A Chain Unfolds Itself..

Possible options;
write a nice haiku or sleep
before midnight

Before midnight
I choose writing a haiku;
Haiku Heights pull

Haiku Heights pull
flow of thoughts from my heart;
oblivious mind

Oblivious mind
looks forward to dreaming;
a goodnight’s sleep

A goodnight’s sleep;
I get up for my walk to
shake hands with sun

Shake hands with sun
or to sing songs of morning;
I wonder aloud

I wonder aloud
trees quietly listen to
promise of the day

Promise of the day
I look at the miracle of
a single haiku

A single haiku
but a chain unfolds itself;
possible options..

RS:)

    1. Jayanth one of my posts is more than 100 lines.. trust me that was also me.. I love to write.. will some time send you..but challenge of Haiku is to write in boundaries. concise and clear.. even if I wrtie a chain of haiku my effort is always to see that each one stands alone too.. Thank yoy, Jayanth.. lets continue with Haikuing..

  5. I enjoyed following your night and morning journey. My favorite
    "I wonder aloud
    trees quietly listen to
    promise of the day"

  6. I think most of us Haiku-writers can relate to this totally... It's like an impatient wait till the clock ticks twelve!

  7. "Promise of the day
    I look at the miracle of
    a single haiku"

    That is just gorgeous.

  8. Well ... Ramesh ... how addicted can we be on haiku :-) This happens me too. When I am on route to write a new haiku I can't stop. I tried to stop that train of writing, but it didn't stop.
    I love writing (and not only haiku).

  20. A fun read. I like where you took "possible" and the haiku were about writing haiku.
