WHISPERS : Sighs


Some of my HAIKU on suffering and then a long verse about life “Sighs...?” I believe that sometimes we cherish pain and selfishly hold on to it till it becomes intrinsic part of our soul... Love has that effect in leaving... in emptying...

A lonely tree in a village near Varanasi

Suffering is you
Left to die alone, in the desert spaces
Of memories - in past
__

Suffering is not
The actuality of pain
It’s just an image of memories
__

From seeds of suffering
That universal feeling of love
Flowers forth
__

Common Man by Cartoonist R K Laxman at Worli Sea Face Mumbai - India

SIGHS
______

As emptiness seeped
Into my being
A sweet selfishness of living
Flowered
And it took roots
Dig deeper into my soul

A red earth tempered by
- Dark blood of dying memories
- Fallen leaves of decaying past
One by one, withered branches
Of love crashed
On this emptiness of now

Trees, wind and the sky
All immersed in me
Pain flows; rivered in earth of living
Sounds of silence reach out from the last kiss
Echoes of your name
Sighs of dying breath


If you want to flower love
Then you need to sow
Seeds of pain
