Hi, hmmm…No! Not ‘Hi’, but ‘Hello’…Hello friend…no- no… FRIENDS!
I am dead sure you are exhausted, tired, sick of being served with HAIKU after HAIKU, moreover of the same taste in an impatient-making CHAIN on destruction and only destruction. I realized long ago you wanna change, but my going single-minded proved me a great pauper, lacking newness. So, giving a break to the lethargic HAIKU-CHAIN, and inserting something, but…. What? Just something, some words of my personal feelings on friends and friendship. Wanna go ahead?
Let, let me first ask you about you?
Hello! How are the days rolling ahead?
Hope you are all so fine. Would you like to know about me? Yeah?
Me… Just so-so! :) Just as you left me after the last “Hello, Hi”.
Well, some change has of course occurred, but, but I can’t understand how I could exactly express how exactly I am now! The exactness has gone unreachable to my words or I have been unable to manage the words.
Yeah! The words, they are unmanageable at times, untypical they turn, so confusing! Confused whether they are teaching me something new or mocking!!
Unable to select, to make a right choice for….. .
Anyway, it doesn’t matter and nor does it pain so much as when feelings fail us.
It is not words that govern us but feelings, intense ones, which have always made us feel empty of words. Some things, no-no, MANY MORE things! They get entrapped with their originalities!! Words… too helpless to help us…going random, cos there fails the governance of mind overshadowed by the emotions, the feelings, SHAPELESS or of COUNTLESS SHAPES changing instantly, welling UP and UP, out of heart spilling in all the directions, uncontrollably just as jubilant school kids running wild out of the school compound, the tiring imprisonment in discipline, rules and regulations. So, there occur some natural slips and skids with words. Thoughts get derailed, injuring the hearts! Anyway, in some corner of the heart, the friend’s heart, there feels some warmth,.. some flickering lamp of hope,…. some light at the end of tunnel…. I still feel…..
Friendship!…. Yeah, in the beginning it feels quite new, a new comer in search of some comfort in a rowdy place of celebration,…. in a hub of new faces. Later on, the acquaintance grows wider and deeper, and the feelings of care and concern are naturally shared, cos they surface spontaneously. That is the way friendship, as it grows older, gets linked with closeness. The days of sharing life experiences, thoughts, imaginativeness with the flow of words in shape of writings and write-ups seem so charming. Encouraging and getting encouraged and criticizing openheartedly and getting criticized with smiles and laughers are the essence of friendship growing stronger, I feel. … What else is left to ask for in the name of friendship apart from such true friendly feelings, uncorrupted and untouched by any ills and evils? After having oneself strung as a bead into the ever-growing string, if one is destined to feel lonely with no response from a friend, what could the feeling taste like to the fellow?…. Have you ever…..? If some fellows are yearning to speak a lot, to share bouquets of joys …. under the disguise of writing, creating, commenting, supporting, and so on, but they get pushed off, kept off the cheers by some shift in understanding, or lack of time or poor health or …. something else, undisclosed… , how could the fellows feel or forget the warmth of closeness? It is strange; no one knows in how many ways this fragile heart is to get used to aching? A range of aches we have been fated to taste silently!
Anyway, anyhow,… perhaps, that is how life has been gifted to us, isn’t it?
What else could be pronounced apart from the following few lines?
Smile back at friendship, dears!
Be devoid of SILENCE, nothing precious are you to be cost!
Be full of vigor with better health and say HELLO – we miss you the most!
DEDICATED TO ALL MY FRIENDS, ALL OF YOU!!!
