WHISPERS: Lost Soul and Love in Haiku

People in our life come and go but sometimes one chooses to remain with someone, forever, even though the farewells have happened. The reason for this deep rooted attachment, may not be in the soil of this life, but probably in all the other lives you have lived… so here I am trying to explore the “Lost Soul” among the debris of lives, lived along with some of my Haiku about love and its expression in verse (To know more about Haiku, Click here…)

Visitors at the Shore Temple Mahabalipuram - Chennai
In the spaces
Between words of despair
Love exposes itself in living

Words fall in place
When love is
Most silent
With white empty pages, I met
On the path of living – Love
Now it’s soaking wet – Blood red

Dark night's shadow looms large - East Coast Road, Chennai

Lost Soul
Among the mortal remains
Of scattered lives -
Embroiled in many life times
I cry
In acrid smoke of burning desires
My selfishness invade
Spoken - unspoken boundaries
Of last farewell

I did let you go
I did not

Now, no longer I am absolved
By love
Dreams keep me burning
And alive
Sleeping cadavers of memories
Worm hole into heart beats
Dancing away
Into depths of living - 
Long lost

Now, just a withered skin I wear,
Over the skeleton of ocean scent
Hanging endlessly in the empty space
Of falling stars, off Orion’s belt
Smells of sea salt
Songs of silence 
From dying pyre
Fall around like dark shadow
Rags of cosmic design
Buries, deep in living, a lost soul

A lonely boat
With sails of tattered death
Softly fades into dark night
नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya

  2. nice job engaging all the sense in your long for shashi...cadavers of memories is and intersting turn of phrase....

  3. A lonely boat with sails of tattered death....wonderful word play here.

  4. beautiful as always dear Shashi..."Love exposes itself in living" these words alone are so tender and fill me with peace.

  5. "I did let you go / and / I did not" -- I like that sudden burst of strength in the midst of all that decay.

  6. Beautiful, haunting, chilling, wistful & many more qualities all blended together into one smooth flow of words. I love the descriptive metaphors, the range of emotion & the contradictions. Life is so full of contradictions, isn't it? I can relate to "I did let you go, and I did not." Shashi, have u published any of your work? I love reading your poetry. You should put out an anthology if u haven't already! Love & Light, Lisa <3
