Cravings and longings (collaboration post)

Aishwarya of kittyverses and I teamed up to write this collaborated post. I really enjoy her blog and I’m lucky to be writing with her. Please check out her blog here

I hope you enjoy this post. Kitty, as I call her did the poetry in bold italics and I the prose in normal case, to come up with this haibun. It was really refreshing writing with Kitty.



Man’s noise deafens
nature’s lilting melody
Awakens spirit

Green ferns dance in the wind, as the agapanthus shimmies its delicate petals, and a chipmunk forages in the now-wild once-pristine lawns and flowerbeds.

Upon curfew’s descent, mother nature boasts and flaunts her diversity, as I look on from behind locked doors and caged glass windows, spellbound within my home, within my prison.

Nature beside me
I chose to overlook you
Vanish, I repent

I see so much within this incommodious state. Things that were, things that are, and things that could be. The old trees living out their last leafless days, the gorgeous sun as it glimmers upon bright floral hues and transient greens, the wild saplings blooming through the unkempt lawns.

Would I understand
The deep message or go back
Time, answer giver

She speaks in her freedom, a voiceless taciturn speech, one I must decipher. I listen with my eyes and feel with my ears as mother nature whispers her plight.
