WHISPERS: Flowers and Traffic Lights...

Here is some selection of Free Form HAIKU, written in past week..

Flowers of love
Carry the scent of ocean within
And colors of passion; rise and fall

Her heart so serene
My hands; rough and coarse
Could only hurt

In her silence
My lips find a whisper
Burning on her lips

Her finger nails
Tattoo name
Sighed softly

Traffic Lights

Slowly, the chaos of mind
Returned, like the traffic
On defunct red light
As winter night, slowly engulfed
The long winding wet road
In its cold embrace

Darkness, falling in continuous stream
Of grey snowflakes
Shimmering in red hues of life
Just like time
Piling up coldness,
In blood reflecting red rains
Of memories

Slowly shadows of mind
Came to a stand still

No desires, no needs, no feelings
Just a silent past, revving up deep inside
Waiting to pass through
The present stillness, headlong into future

Just before
The pedal could hit the floor
And shoot through
The chaos of my passion;
I broke free

Shackles of life lived
That coiled me up, in serpent like senses
Ready to strike
At any movement
At any stillness, that comes out alive
From the shadows of mind

A life, wasted in living,
Starts to change
Red, orange, green
And I walked across the road
Looking back, one last time
A car still buried deep
In the traffic of the living
ॐ नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya
