Haiku___The Art Of Brevity

A few days back I tried my hands at haiku. At first it seemed rather difficult, it turned out interesting and meaningful activity though. Not just I enjoyed it I learned too___the art of brevity. It is so fascinating the way the haikai encapsulate wondering thoughts into 17 syllables of haiku. An art par excellence […]

How Long Shall I Long For You O My Beloved!

Tired of dreaming of youMy eyes were about to shutYet you appeared from afarBright and beautiful as everNor could I get you, neither my fingers could caress your beingBut for my eyes your appearance was a feastIn a bevy of twinkling starsYour serene brightness was warming the surroundingI beheld you with my heart and eyeslooked […]
