HAIKU #176

Openly hidden
Footsteps muffled in soft sand
Healing space TO BE

Caged helplessness

Enjoying the sights of  caged beings

 Have we ever thought how they feel

In their limited spaces

Restlessly pacing

Restricted  movements

No free will to roam

Eating  when and what given

No springs, lakes or rivers

To drink water or bathe

Removed from their natural habitats

Taking away their right to live as they please

The look of despair  and helpless

Says their tales

If  only  they could speak

I am sure would express

Their wish to be free      

 As they were meant to BE

Are you busy ❔❓❔

I am busy Status symbol and a ego booster

In the rush to be successful Today everyone is running Putting reminders to drink water Apps to count the steps Flashing it as achievements What have we come to❓❓ Where are we heading to ❓❓❓

An app to count the breathing That day may not be too far

A hug and a kiss limited to the emojis A message of condolence sent living in the same city What have we come to ❓❓ Imagine one day lying still Waiting for your farewell Messages of condolences flooding kins phones With a busy emoji and folded hands

The Soul ready to Ascend Awaiting the final rites The family in turn waiting The arrival of friend and relatives

Would be leaving the rest to the reader to conclude

P S : The technology is for saving time, social media is to express your thoughts. In times of need your presence is important ( if you are at commutable distance). Inquiring on whatsapp is an insult to the morality.

I am a firm beliver of being present at loved ones side in times of need. That may be the reason my dependable circle is shrinking with the passage of time

December 2022

Year to year Time goes quickly What has changes since January

The agony, the fears, the fights Suffering of the weaker ones Nothing has changed much

Pandemic to war What have we gained ? The people uprooted from their homes

It is painful to see unsafe social medias The constant fear of parents Children vulnerable to exploitation

The violence on the streets The insecurities of young girls Has this year allied their fears

Collectively we have to rise To protect and preserve And make difference in 2023

I read a post recently and it was very distrubing. Words have the power to raise our consciousness and compels us to think…

Whispering thoughts

The secret is well hidden Why should I worry ? Someone would take away My treasures And leave me with nothing The hurt caused by betrayal The wounds that never heal Are the result of carelessness And the vulnerability let the thoughts whisper to you Not even the wind can listen The peaceful silence of friendship With self would stand till the end.
