April Haiku Heights

This post is an entry in Haiku Challenge for April 2012 at Haiku Heights.

April 19 Prompt - HoneyBees

It stings,it dies
Sweet and Selfless
Wish I was a Honeybee

The above Haiku is based on the fact
that even though the honeybee knows it will
die after it stings, it still stings. 


April 18 Prompt - White

How bland
If life was pure white
Colors add spice



April 17 Prompt - Wonder

I sometimes wonder
How the hell I wonder
Isn't that wonderful



April 16 Prompt - Being

Its toughest
To remove the facade
Be yourself



April 14 Prompt - Aura

Walk in a way
That the Aura screams
Welcome the KING!!!



April 13 Prompt - Warmth

In the cold dark nights
The warmth of your touch
Ignites me



April 12 Prompt - Coherent

Coherence of lake
Incoherence of hurricane
Stems from water



April 11 Prompt - Possible

Is it even possible
To laugh your heart out
Without tears ?



April 10 Prompt - Summer

Boon for a few
Summer is bane for a few
Its the place that matters

April 9 Prompt - Seashore

Facing scary seas
Pushing back every single time
The shore stands tall



April 8 Prompt - Play

As kid I played
I still play now, but
the toys have changed



April 7 Prompt - Forgive

I forgive myself
For its the only way
to breathe again

Beautiful haiku...simple and sweet :)

Chevrefeuille said...

Well done. It's tough but it's true. When you can forgive yourself, you can forgive the other.

Ramesh Sood said...

There is nothing more pious and glorious than this.. forgiving oneself means one accepts one has erred..and this realisation makes the soul shine.. RS:)

Ellecee said...

A special haiku. The hardest to forgive is ourselves. Thank you..

Mohinee said...

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Self-forgiveness is an art!

Will She Forgive Us?

ashzzes said...

Very nice set ...

This is my Day 8 ~~ Waiting Their Turn.

PattiKen said...

I like all three of these. Well done.

Leo said...

Beautiful renditions all, Vikram :)

The first one has just exceeded syllable limits, I think making the first line of that haiku, "Facing scary seas" would solve that.

Vikram Pyati said...

Thanks Leo. I have corrected the mistake

Gemma Wiseman said...

Lovely sense of inner strength filters through the seashore haiku!

Chevrefeuille said...

I love the haiku on the prompt seashore very much. The one on summer is also lovely crafted.
Thank you for sharing.


Ellecee said...

I am enjoying your haiku very much. Today's on summer gives us a truth. Summer is not the happy time for everyone. We must be grateful if it is a pleasure for us.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Summer and winter - the seasonal extremes can be a boon or a bane. Just being alive - our inner place is indeed what matters.

Grace said...

Very nice set....I didn't appreciate the sun when I live in the tropics...not that I am in Canada, I really look forward to it.

And I like forgiving ourselves...this is important to go on ~

☂☆ Vållῐ ★♬ said...

Yes!...That's true....Summer is not the same for every person...Nicely penned

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Day 9: There have been times when I was frightened of the sea too.

“Six Takes on ‘Seashore’”

Chevrefeuille said...

Day 10: Lovely imagery.

Vikram Pyati said...

Thanks Gemma :)

Vikram Pyati said...

Thanks Chevrefeuilli

Vikram Pyati said...

Thanks Elleecee for you comments :)

Thanks a lot Grace :)

Thanks Valli :)

Thanks magical mystical teacher :)

Ramesh Sood said...

Yes, it's beautiful to wonder sometimes.. enjoy the wonderment..

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

The last line of Day 17 seems rather sarcastic. Or am I misreading it?

“The Way Goes On”

“A Dozen Wonders

Chevrefeuille said...

Well done. Loved reading this one.

PattiKen said...

April 17: I love the humor in this. Wonderful indeed.

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

Lol ~ Wonderful humor haiku ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^

Ramesh Sood said...

Oh, yes, one can learn commitment to the purpose from have said it well...

Jaideep said...

Magical lines on honeybees, loved it :)

☂☆ Vållῐ ★♬ said...

I don't know that it dies if it stings....Learned new thing today....and beautiful haiku :)

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Let me play devil's advocate for a moment: Does the bee really KNOW it will die if it stings, or is that supposed self-sacrifice just a genetic trait?

About honeybees: “First Light”

Vikram Pyati said...

Magical Mystical Teacher - Hmm.. thats a tough question. Either way, I think that trait is something we humans can inculcate.

The Fool said...

Interesting attempts at Haiku. I found the seashore one and bees one especially interesting.

Vikram Pyati said...

Hey TF, thanks very much
