Bless Me on Fourth Anniversary of My Blog....


To all my friends at Haiku Heights, Haiku My Heart, 3WW , OSI and other visitors...

November 14th, Indian Standard Time 01.25 p.m. (Almost the time too is very near to my first ever post..posted it 2.00 minutes earlier)

Fourth Anniversary of my Blog falls today....

Have been travelling and decided to glean a few moments to say thanks to all the friends and visitors from across the World
who have been encouraging, appreciating and guiding me along the way...Made a few friends, got mentors and cracked jokes with so many fellow travellers on this fascinating journey which continues...

Wrote poems, long poems..finding haiku stuck in them...and often the haiku would get transformed into poems..and I would keep the one that would appeal to my heart and soul..

Let me try both spontaneously here..as all the haiku and poems spilled on the pages over four years have mostly, almost all, flowed spontaneously..gifts from God and result of your blessings...



A haiku that turned into a poem...


Ah, Sun walks in
through my open window;
I smile in sleep

as the dream sudddenly glows
and I find myself
bathed in that unknown joy
in the realms of the Unknown..
a world where I often visit
and find words
hanging on the trees
ripening and falling
in a rhythm as I find
poems born & bloom in
the blissful moments
And I stay there
the gentle knocks of Sunbeams
on my face fail to
wake me up...

Ah, I wrote this one in my sleep..dreaming ..clearly..

And I find a haiku there in that poem:


hear them hit me soft
as I continue to sleep;
gentle polite sunbeams..



This is what has been happening as I slowly move towards the milestone of 1000 posts...

May it happen in the year 2014...Be with me... We will conntinue to Practice Happiness..

      I wonder why would you think that there could be any fear of hesitation in sharing....it is a gift from you to us the haiku enthusiasts who gather and share...God made you the medium...a wonderful, humble and lovely medium for that..
