morning quiet time
in nature's warm bosom found
sun kissed flowers shine

Connecting Genius and Madness

* Written for Elly's "At Least Three Proverbs and One Quote Contest" (Modified Haiku with rhyme)

Aristotle quote: “There was never a genius without a tincture of madness.”

American Proverbs
Edgar Allen Poe: “I remained too much inside my head; I ended up losing my mind.”
Robin Williams: “You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it”
Marilyn Monroe: “Imperfection is beauty; madness is genius.”

can genius be found
if you fail to look around
     head buried in ground

to stay in my mind
others may think I am blind
     label me maligned

welcome is madness
if you believe it’s genius
     and make others guess

shall I cling to it
this madness, every last bit
    to genius commit

imperfection reigns
for people who play mind games
    desiring acclaims  

I must not lose this
ties to poetic genius
     deep in mind’s abyss  

*Written October 4, 2014
The two words are “genius” and “madness”
First two verses are a play on Poe’s proverbs
Third verse is inspired by the Aristotle quote
Fourth verse is a play on Robin Williams’ proverb 
Fifth verse is inspired by the Marilyn Monroe proverb
Sixth and final verse is inspired by the Poe proverb

At Fame’s restless lonely mate—

The Artist Awakes

Haiku as an art:
To paint a canvas broadly,
With tiny brush strokes.

Hushed, quiet and still
the forest revives my soul
   I  remember me.

New Year's Eve

Clock ticks so smoothly
Whilst celebrants big bang came
Past out new hopes in.

A Season lost

The season I lost A season which can't be found The past, never came Another season Approaching my vision now I cannot miss it This time, I will know The experience I'll gain from this new season If I miss this chance I will lose my fall feeling and the love I had The experience my experience will last if i hold my sight I blinked and it left the love I had left my heart the season has passed

Silence can deceive                                        
One's quiet to understand
Another to destroy

Wish you were here

Canopy of trees
trying to cross sky limit....
green revolution

a distant river
lying naked lazily....
an enticing call

the old learned stones
whispering me history ....
wish you were here now

Ain't a word, you said.

Seeing God Everywhere

So many people
are out smelling the flowers...
Hope some planting them.

Pluck not the flower
Let it be the delight of 
other travelers

Flowers in morning 
tell us to look up always 
and not to look down

By plucking petals
impossible to gather....
fairness and fragrance

Fairness and fragrance
always will stay in the hand
that gives to someone

I asked a flower,
“What is the meaning of life?”
opened empty hands.

Juxtaposition of Me and the Willow Tree

          Like the willow tree,
I'm of narrow, slender twigs.
                    Thin and sad- we are.

Bubbles up inside to be
Layered on by tears.
