WHISPERS: Cherry Blossoms Haiku & The Old Man At The Ghat...

Cherry blossoms and...
Falls; Sound of silence echoes
Is one hand clapping?
Love has lost meaning
Of being; Lone cherry blossoms
Alone; Cycle of life
Cherry blossoms in
Beauty; Wither, fall and
Decay; Life goes on...

An Old Man at the Ghat's Of Varanasi

The Old Man At The Bathing Ghat*
I saw the old man at the bathing Ghat*
Ages ago but he still continues
To haunt me and my thoughts
Provoking me to dig deeper
In psych about
Belonging that is lost.

But what does he know
I am handicapped too
By pain,
Loss and loneliness
Life to be, has become
An obscure phase lived
Slowly passing by, grain by grain
Like the sands of time in hour glass.

I have no clear vision
Even dreams are marred
By the imposter Hope
Playing kaleidoscope of light
At the end of one long dark tunnel
Why there is a light, only at the end?
Tunnels of life never end in living
But we blindly live, on and on

I too keep walking, on and on
Dripping past Karma
In drops of sweat and tears
Creating a fiery blood line
Anchoring me to the life
The old man now walks beside me
Holding my hand, talking
Knowing, feeling

I am as lost...
