Dearest love, she replied: a haiku

a letter in replyDearest love, she replied:

Yes I read you across realms

thousand tears and smiles

~~~~~~~~~~Sometimes they cannot receive the physical letters from each other. Often it’s because one of them has traveled too far and beyond. There is no modern communication network in those realms. Sometimes it may not be physically appropriate to write and entrust the letters through a medium, whatever mode it may be. Yet they write letters. The traveler needs to write to a loved one who may be at home or in a place called ‘home’, where they have last said goodbye and from which one of them has journeyed on. Because there is now no wall between a combat zone and a peace zone where ordinary non-combating earth residents live their harmless daily lives, because combats are no longer based on formal declaration and agreement to combat between the parties concerned, and because there is really no foreseeable next move of certainty by anyone, letters between one another human individual revive from ashes. It is hard to say goodbye not knowing when she will meet her loved one again. It is hard too to know that there will be no regular physical letter. How will she know what the loved one is saying to her? She knows. She just knows from the words they have spoken to each other before and the hundreds of thousands of tears and smiles carefully stored in the memory.

till we say goodbye

happy time abide

thank you for singing awhile

till we say goodbye


For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.
The fig tree puts forth her green figs,
And the vines with the tender grapes
Give a good smell.
Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away!

(Song of Solomon 2:11-13)

adieu mon ami to old dreams

cross road

they came to this point

saying goodbye to old dreams

adieu mon ami


Everyday we walk and come across junctions. A junction is a place where we halt briefly and make a decision to choose one direction to continue. It can be a junction of three directions including the one from which you have left. A junction can be a place where four roads meet and is called a cross road. One thing we know is no one can linger at a junction for too long. You just need to make up your mind within the short span of time allowed. The good news is, you may travel far and one day come to the same junction again. By then of course things would have changed. i pray each one of us make the right decision at the right time with the right person.
