May "May" be...

And I am eagerly waiting for downpour…

Let the blazing Sun take rest…

Let the drizzles spread warmth and love…

Let it take away the frustration…

Let it accompany during loneliness…

Let it transform into our playmate…


Last month was great… Full of haiku… Made lots of friends and learnt a lot. It taught me rather strongly that perceptions differ. There was only a single topic. Yet each person had different interpretation for it. And I enjoyed that thoroughly.

I have to thank Leo of Haiku Heights for bringing so many bloggers in one forum and uniting them poetically.

Now… Let me deeply exhale. At this juncture, I am feeling at peace.
It seems quite unusual though I know the reason too well.
Yes. I am recovered from the Haiku fever.


I was indeed enjoying in the beginning. Well, I enjoyed the journey. But there were times when I felt as if I am just not talking to myself... As if I was participating in some marathon and trying to keep up my pace to give strict competition to others... In that process, my crazy mind didn’t find enough time and space to muse… To draw poems… Or to come up with tales! There was no bickering or an opportunity to post my kolam.


And finally, today, a new month has dawned and I could feel my frustration receding.


I am not complaining or cribbing…

Think about it…

We all will be super-excited when our relatives announce that they are coming home for vacations. We plan and relentlessly make arrangements. We go to any extent to ensure that they are given special attention. Finally, when they come, we try to spend as much time as possible with them. We take them out for luncheons and dinners. We buy them special gifts. We secretly wait for their gifts. But, if they stay a little too long, our routine will get disrupted. We feel as if our independence is snatched and that we are trapped in our own home.


And in similar lines…. I felt overjoyed when the April challenge was announced. I went through the topics. I planned. I observed. I posted a haiku every day. Yay! Didn’t miss a day J I dropped on other’s blogs and stopped to post a comment. And I also patiently waited for others comments. Each of their comments brought a wide smile in my face. Wow! However, towards the end, I started feeling estranged. I missed my independence.


Ha! I am happy now… This little nest in blogospheres is mine now!


Anyways… No regrets… I just missed my lengthy muses a little too much.

So looking forward for Month filled with an overload of my lengthy muses!!!


Between… Its May 1st… And I wish each one of you a Happy Labor’s day.

Why don’t we say “Thank you” for people who take care of us… That auto-walla… That hotel server… That lift operator… Apartment care taker… Laundry-walla… Milk man… Newspaper boy… And so many others! They make our life simple. Their service never fails to bring a smile in our face. So why don’t we, at least for a day, try to bring smile in their face?


Hey wait…. Hug your family… You don’t really have to say anything. That touch has the capability to speak the unspoken. Take that extra effort to make the special ones in life feel special!


May “May” be full of memorable events…

Happiness… And laughter!!! J
