Petty – Haiku

Like a child you wail

Scratch your hurt, bleed it to pain

Scream shrill, eyes shut tight


A Childhood

Some chatter, a caress
Laughter, eyes rolling
Secrets, Promises
Curious exploring

Vivid dreams
Active passive
Books, board games
Cartoons, comics

A brother, an angel
A baby, so beautiful
A tear, a smile
A friend for life

Singing, Dancing
Playing, Fighting
Forgiving, Forgetting
Being, living

Ideas, imaginations
Future evaluations
Philosophical dabbles
“Serious” discussions

A childhood, a flashback
Maddening, blissful
Unthinking, unflinching
Confusing, simple

Oh Rhapsody…

Oh Rhapsody…

How fickle is your mood?

Changing with changing tides

From frolic to solitude.


Do you stop for a minute

To take a peak inside

Or to gaze at the skies infinite

To unearth what fate confides?


Do you see a pattern?

Governing your randomness?

Do you hear the chuckle?

Of the sways ruling your harness?


You are but life indeed,

Bemusing with its various shades,

Changing like changing seasons,

Playing your part in the charades.

Bo Peep in the City

What is this place? Wondered Bo Peep,

No rivers, no streams, no peaks so steep!

The grasslands are missing; no soul on the streets,

The paths are hard, made of concrete.

The houses are tall, the doors shut tight,

The trees are few, with no birds in sight.

What is this place? How did I get here?

My wretched sheep! She cursed in fear.

Bo Peep had walked long, her mouth was dry,

She looked for a spring or a stream nearby.

She looked all around, her throat now parched,

A tap went past, but on she marched.


Thought of trying something different this Friday… 😀

98 words for Madison’s Friday Prompt:

Vantage Point?

Save the Song

I will be gone

But save my song

And hear it when it’s been long.

Not to trouble you, not to cause pain

Not to put your frail heart under any strain

But just so it wasn’t all in vain.

I wrote that song for the times that were,

Since can we go back and make it blur?

Or can we move forward like it was never?

It was there then and now it’s gone

Let’s raise a toast and cherish our song,

And pray we get where we truly belong.

Save the Song?

Save the song?

Are you insane!

All you ever gave me

Was hurt and pain.

Your song is for you

It was never mine

Your treachery cut deep

Though your words were sublime.

You should reach

Where you truly belong

Good riddance,

Farewell to your song.

Since it’s my first time, not sure if I did it right! But I’d rather try and fail and learn than sit and watch from a distance! 🙂

In my beautiful dream

In my beautiful dream,
I go where it had all begun.
I dance on the starlit stage,
And I run in the corridors so open.

In my beautiful dream,
I see you in all your glory,
Resplendent and shining,
Preserved timelessly.

In my beautiful dream,
You let me be me,
As I recall the events,
As they were supposed to be.

In my beautiful dream,
I go back in time,
And find you just as you were,
Like an enchantment so sublime.

In my beautiful dream,
I sit and talk and talk,
I say things I once spoke,
Or things that were only thought.

In my beautiful dream,
You keep coming back,
And I feel so happy,
Because you make up for what I lack.

Could time be reversed?
And things put back in place?
Maybe in another dream.
Maybe in another space.


In memory of my school.
