We Missed Their Track…. #Poetry

What Do You See

The glass of wine
in your hand
is more fortunate.

When you taste wine
that glass touches
your lips then,
why do I feel like you are far away from me?

I was invited
to dance and dine then,
how did you give time to wine without dancing with me?

Wine is sweet bitter
than me then,
How do you crave wine without the magic of my love?

The pain
was intense,
but I found hope in it.
At least you met me then,
where our dreams scattered?

We missed their track.

End of One Valentine #tankaprose

A good man died and went to heaven. The door to heaven was closed and two clocks hung on the door wall. One was showing the time on earth and the other was showing the time in heaven.

As soon as he reached the gates of heaven, he was welcomed by God’s clerk then God’s clerk warned him not to get any stuff inside. The good man said, ‘I didn’t get anything with me.’

God’s clerk said, ‘Please take the weight off your head.’ The good man asked, ‘What weight and how to lower it?

The clerk of God answered, ‘Give up all your hopes and aspirations.If you fall in love with someone, get rid of it. Lighten your mind, then the door of heaven will open for you.’

Clerk continued, ‘I want to read your whole life before God, then God will decide what to do with you, whether to send you to heaven or again to the same hell by giving rebirth.

A busy schedule
brought a sudden stop to life
severe heart attack
valuable life wasted
the end of one valentine

Late Post

With the help of black magic, she invoked his spirit. She made up her mind to unite with his soul by chanting mantras in penance. So,she called his spirit at midnight of the new moon. His soul connected to her and complained….

Life burned like a candle
sacrificed happiness
to fulfil demands

⭐I tried to write idyll haibun for the first time.( one prose and one haiku) according to the rule, the title should connect to the poem.

Crawls Around #ReverseEtheree

Like a lover crawls around his girlfriend
the butterfly crawls on the flowers
they try to seduce each other
the joy of satisfaction
experience of love
in togetherness
the nectar sucked
both of them
enjoyed
fun

Am I getting old? : Poem

Eyes wide open,
breath kept on hold.
Staring at the new one,
Am I getting old?

All duties are done,
still no one told.
You changed your tone,
Am I getting old?

Guarded your home,
from thieves, because I’m bold.
Still new member is come,
Am I getting old?
