A world gone mad

Heart is heavy

Fingers stiff

Words left me

Numb with pain

As pundits debate

It people who kills

Not soul less guns

For scores it is

Irrelevant now

They will not hear

Nor see

As their blood

Is cleaned

Their blood wiil

Not stain the hands of those

Nor their souls

As they immerse on

Sending their heartfelt sympathy

To those whose hearts will not heal

Deep are the holes

Left by the absence of their

Loved ones

As instigators

Discuss animately about the skill of

Putting the eighteenth hole

Some one somewhere may be plotting

Mayhem, to riddle the chest

Of innocents

With bullet holes

And the saints will march in

Singing the virtues of

The second ammendmant

And defend the sacrosanct rights

Of those who pick up the guns

After all, it’s people who kill

Not the guns

Rest in peace dear departed

May be what comes next

Is better than

This world gone mad

Temporal Absurdity

When there will be time,
It will not matter anymore.
False self importance,
Scarred life bears
Pains of lonliness
Amongst abundance.
In solitude
I close doors to the world,
Open my mind to the universe,
Fly in vacuum of black holes unseen.
Temporal absurdity rules.

Against the Tide: RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge # 243 Swim & Float

This post is in response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge .

Swimming against tide
Dark hostile environment
A precious life floats
*****
Nine months and counting
Swimming and floating in peace
Harsh world waits outside
*****
Swim, you precious soul
Cruel sharks circling around
Floating dangerous
*****

 

 

Peak Unsummited

Excellence unattained,
Excuses, excuses,
Lower the bar,
Lower the bar again.
When finally jump over
The lowered bar,
Peak unsummited
Looks down.
Sunk in self pity,
Rising frustration,
Life miserable.
Better to fail trying
Then daily dose of death.
One can con the world,
But lying to self?
Need to live
In a world
Without mirrors.
Perfection mirage,
Pursuit praiseworthy.

Hiking QuickSilver County Park : Tuesday Photo Challenge – Scene

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt from Frank  is  “Scene”.

After a long time, I went hiking solo up the hilly trails of QuickSilver County Park near my home.  Now a days I rarely go hiking solo as my better half  is worried that I will die up on the hills and no one will know.  As far as I am concerned, nothing can be better than that.  As one is about to leave this world, sun shining on the face and nature surrounding you, what more can any one ask for.  Anyway, that is for another day.  After a seven and half miles ( approximately twelve and half kilometers) hike up and down the hills and many photo stops in between, here is what I have for Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge.

Why do we rebel
To bring meaningful changes
Or minutes in sun

Fifteen minutes passed
Will change the world, we proclaimed
Vain rebels we were
