WHISPERS: Seed and Senseless living...

Some of my Haiku below from the last week, hope you enjoy them... 
...and followed by long verse about life and futility of living 'enslaved by senseless desires', overlooking the reality of soul and the power of love to free oneself from all of it....

Seed, in giving birth
Didn't die; just changed
Into 'being' the tree. It already was

Don’t look back
There's nothing left of the present
Its all past

Cherry blossoms know
How to flower
Eyes don’t know how to speak

Loving hides a pain
So profound
It’s enlightening


Reason is master minding
The living
According to a warped sense
Of preservation – for a body
That is bound to perish

Emotions, Passions, Desires
Overwhelms sensuous mind
Soul is reduced
To mere puppet
Of chaotic ‘being’

Moment by moment, past empties
Present – off living
A leaf floats around
In ever changing winds of dream

In constant occupation
Of being alive
Every one ultimately stops
Dead in the track
An eerie stillness echoes in living

As life’s pyre
Consumes sweat, blood and hopes
Specs of burnt ash
Settles softly on the path
Of dead memories

Only an axe of detachment
Could cut a path across deep forest
Of desires, needs and dreams

Only love could churn out
From depths of soul;
Freedom from senseless living

ॐ नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya
