Worship & Goddess: Aphrodite, Durga and Nirbhaya

This post is in response to Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge

Eros worshippers
Pay the price with lowered heads
Aphrodite reigns

*****

Amorous passion
Pay homage to Erotes
Aphrodite lures

*****

Goddess Durga cries
A nation worships shakti
Nirbhaya gang raped


Durga, Goddess of Power(Shakti), is worshipped by Hindus in different forms.
On 16 December, 2012, Nirbhaya was brutally gang raped and her boyfriend beaten by a group of six men in New Delhi, India. She ultimately succumbed to her injuries.

Lonely: Carpe Diem Haiku

In response to Carpe Diem Haiku  Crossroads#1

Lonely by seaside
Cold tears of separation
Deathly calm engulfs

*******

Far out in the sea
Tears merged on the horizon
Seagulls fall silent


Goal of Carpe Diem Crossroads Haiku as explained in Carpe Diem Crossroads Introduction is “Imagine you are on a crossroad were two haiku come together. The haiku “have a conversation” and “decide” to become one. Together the create a symbiosis of a new haiku.”

Monday Haikus : Don’t Pass The Buck

Today here and now
Tomorrow is far away
Onus is on you

*****
Being good human
Squander not inheritance
Malign not the world

*******
Why do pass the buck
Eyed responsibility
Unite, not divide

*****
Make it great again
By deed, not smoke and mirrors
Talk is cheap, work not

*******
Enjoy happiness
In responsibility
Burden it is not

Darkness and Deep:Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #154

Covered in darkness
Religious fanaticism
Deep hatred rules heart

Let there be light
To clear this deep darkness
Love may trump hatred

A warmth deep inside
The feeling colours my cheeks
Imminent release

Nirvana at last
Heavenly warmth does linger
Colors draining out

Miracle and Save : Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #150

I told my friend Jane that I will try to be as non-religious as possible to keep miracle and save away from the old guy.  But I wanted to give him his due as at this time I do not see any way out for us to save this wonderful country of ours.

Daily miracles
Wonderful to be alive
You save your applause

*******

Miracle happened
God save this wonderful land
Sometimes shit happens

*******

What a miracle
No affordable choices
People save yourself
