Om Namah Shivaya

I'll be grateful if you...

I am sharing some of the Haiku from this week and long verse “Dreams” inspired by some the protagonists of Secessionist Movement from Vienna, namely Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. To read more of my thoughts on the movement and see some amazing paintings (including the world’s costliest painting sold), click here....

Death and Life by Gustav Klimt c 1910-15

Loving is an art
That one unlearns
From Childhood

The wounded only know
The color of pain
Bleeding red

I hear
The emptiness
Nothing exists


Cardinal and Nun Caress - Schiele c 1912

Dreams have color of your eyes
Hues of your smile, interwoven in fabrics
Of passion into caresses of soul
As sun set, a deep yearning
Sleep walks into night
I live on and on
In my dreams

Lingering sensation of your touch
Tremble like dew drops
On my lips
Beads of sweat run down
In passionate cries
Etching bloodlines
Between ecstasies and sighs,

Wrinkled folds unfolds
In the depths of the sea
As waves upon waves of desire
Laps it up, in a feverish dream
Buried in throes of passion
Gasping for breath
I break free

Dreams precipitates
The reality of my ‘being’
Into existence

And I live
On and on
In my dreams
Shashi @ 2011

  1. dreams are hugely important as i think they happen def before reality...nice close on the haiku as well..particularly the first...kinda sad we unlearn it...

  2. I love dreams and to dream, even though they sometimes stab the helpless sleeping heart.
    unlearning from childhood...Sadly I understand the haiku.

  3. I really like your first haiku.

    I find it sad that the Catholic deity can only dream like that.

  4. Great haiku--especially the first--so very true. You seem to restate that in your longer poem, where love is only there faintly as a memory, off in a distant dream. Klimt is an amazing artist, and thanks for the introduction to Schiele.

  5. Hey Shashi

    i have much love for the Viennese movements
    philisophical, artistic etc - excellent Haiku

    arron shilling

  6. smiles..your dream poem made me smile..very romantic and tenderly woven..

  7. Nice haiku set...and I like the dreamy sensual write ~

  8. What a wonderful surprise.. wise and beautiful words and complimented by gorgeous art..
    nicely done..
    very much enjoyed all..


  9. whispers to my soul. I especially like the first haiku - it really made me stop and think.

  10. The first haiku really struck me.

    Even in the emptiness I hear a hum.

  11. What an unusual complement to the Schiele painting -- ordinarily I would see it as a criticism of a supposedly-celibate religious hierarchy, but you've cut right through to the passion.


I appreciate your visit and it will be a great pleasure to know what you think of this post...
