An innocent smile
sways you to oblivion
An innocent smile
sways you to oblivion
Attempting to get you to smile………………………..
A girl wanted to tease her boy friend gently and asked him smilingly, “Dear, would you let me know why are you so handsome?”
The boy could see through her intention and looked at her from bottom to top innocently and asked her respectfully to answer his simple question, so that he could answer her properly.
And, then he asked her “How have you been so beautiful?”
The girl felt teased on being asked so. She made up her mind to baffle him and answered, “I am so beautiful because I eat stale, overcooked food twice a day. I take milk when it turns sour and relish fruit when it smells bad.”
Then, the boy answered excitedly, “That is why I am handsome!”
The girl said, “What? You mean you also take such and such food?”
The boy said plainly, “No, of course not! I never take that, like you. So, I am handsome. If I took that way, I would have been beautiful like you, not handsome!”
I may appear in front of you
But, for sure you won’t look at me, for you can’t see me.
I can sing my heart right into your ear.
Yet, you won’t listen to me, for you can’t hear me.
I may be resting against your throbbing heart.
Yet, you won’t feel me even there, for you don’t think about me.
It is me!
Just in front of you but you can’t see me, yet you can try to look at me!
It is me!
Just whispering into your ear but you can’t hear me, yet you can try to listen to me!
It is me!
Just next to your heart but you don’t think about me, yet you can try to feel me!
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!!!
In simple words, it was a March Friday, a Spring Friday, a Good Friday. It was at 2:46 pm, on a Good Spring Friday people were supposed to be busy doing their jobs in full swing so as to have a Good Friday Celebration, moreover in spring- the king of seasons, the harbinger of rebirth, renewal and regrowth. Such a jovial environment- each and every fellow could have enjoyed in Japan, couldn’t they? But, to human surprise and shock, no-one had ever imagined how heartless the mother nature could turn and shatter and sweep away the sweet smiles on the lips, the great hopes in the hearts and the beautiful plans in the minds in a jiffy instead of showering motherly LOVE as a Special Spring Gift. Hence, the Friday next to doom’s day to the localities in Japan was UNFORGETTABLE. It was a HORRIBLE GOOD SPRING FRIDAY to the Japanese!
Lives tuneful in great delight
Good Friday echoes!
A horrible shift
Nature’s wrath over spring blooms!
Quakes with tsunami!!
Japan, the developed country of the RISING SUN, once devastatingly rocked during the WORLD WAR II by nuclear explosions, is now once again on the brink of the horrible sufferings posed by radioactive leakage following the earthquake and the tsunami last month. What a callous ordeal set by nature!
So many hopes may have been shattered. So many parents may have lost their pieces of heart. So many children may have been deprived of parental love. So many people may have been homeless in their own hometown. Ah! How painful it is, isn’t it?
Despite such blows of natural calamities, Japanese seem and sound not to have lost heart, but to have been bolder and more composed than ever before which I have felt on reading a piece of news about a Japanese woman holding her dead child in her arms and consoling others and encouraging them not to give up hopes for better safety. Wow! How calm and composed she was, wasn’t she?
Let’s pray to the Almighty for the eternal peace of the departed souls, and Pleasure, Peace and Prosperity of all the Japanese in the days to come!
In the same regard, as my personal tributes, I have already come up with some poetic creations in a sequence that I will soon publish part-wise under the main title:
“The Japan I Feel These Days!”
Here is the next sequel to the first post. Let’s take it as a turning point. Something is to happen there, but WHAT is the matter of suspense, just to have a thrilling sensation! Hope this one will make you so curious to know what exactly there is after the turning!!
My heart felt Sinking; Mind Staggering with No Base.
Throat got Parched; tongue immobile; and Breath was Crawling like a Worm.
Eyes grew Too moist; Tears ready to run down the Face.
Horrible Trauma! I felt her Too close – the Calm before the Storm!
Suddenly, I Heard! She Broke it! My Fading Hope?
No doubt, she Did break and shatter it! But, What , our True Friendship?
She broke my Fragile heart? I can’t say ‘Yeah’ nor ‘Nope’.
Words I lack; feelings Tiding to eyes! Oh!! Shall I Laugh or Weep?
