My soul

A part of you
that resides in me
My consciousness
I like to believe

I often wonder though
about the ones who abuse
Give pain to others
I can't imagine much worse

Where's this part of you
in that malicious one
Fate, Karma, I get, God
Evil by part of you, No

Agony of body transient,
Only answer I can think

Sailor's secret - Haiku

Back after a long hiatus, this post is about Sindbad.

The introduction of Sindbad's story is at CDHK.
In this, Sindbad tells that his path to money and glory has not been easy.

The next haiku is a little crazy because the actual spider-fly story has the cunning spider trapping the fly. I somehow thought of fly arguing with the spider that it works hard, and the captor spider telling about the hard work it has put in too. 
Not in the spirit of Sindbad at all, but I found the thought interesting. So...


my struggles
not any less than yours

Torn papers, fallen flower - Haiku Story

Words of verse
A part of the universe now
She said no

She said no
Verse embraced by air
Torn Letter

Torn papers
Adorn the fallen flower
Witness of the end
