Note to Arc: please don't this without a guru!

Ive gotten here without a guru and it has been excruciating, and although I honestly feel i'm only somewhat ahead of being half way done, it certainly worth the effort.

The pain is incredibly trying, the intellectual travails astounding, but just after the feeling that the half way has been accomplished, an outside force sets a series of inexplicable situations which obliged me to carry on.

Derleydoo,

Catching in Autumn." Do haikus have titles?


I have two haikus in here, which I titled. Why not title them?

One is called Haiku to Fleeting Thoughts. The other one is called Simply Haiku Journey.

Haiku to Fleeting Thoughts

I see a Moon Bright
while gazing out my window ~
a Sky's own Marvel!

A Morning's Welcome
painted on a splash of blue ~
Numinous Silver!

As time elapses,
waning luminosity,
fleeting thoughts occur.

Love, Man's Psychic Glow,
in Morning's Glory ~ waxing,
one's Brightest Beacon.

Slowly, falls upon
two hearts ~ a Moonlight Landscape,
an Eden 's Garden.

Holy of Holies!
Paradigms of Shifting Sands!
Promised Horizons!

Waxing and waning,
a Moon's own capriciousness ~
Love's Experience.

Dimmer still, the Glow
soon becomes the Moonlight's fate ~
sharing destiny.

Sky mourns her Moonlight,
Man ~ the Death of Embers' Glow.
Silence enters Space!

Out of the ashes,
Sky and Man awaken. Soon ~
Dance renews its Light!


Simply Haiku Journey

Quietly detach!
Shades of Autumn Gold whisper.
Stillness holds. Breathless!

Whirling winds sweep through ~
Nature's Knowing ~ fall the leaves.
Chaotic Beauty!

Slowly shuffling through ~
such fated dissolution.
Stoic surrender.

Shadows dancing with
sensuous streaming sunlight.
A Viennese Waltz.

Autumn's misty mood
slips into Winter's dying.
Self descends to Sleep.

Silence permeates!
Creative transformation
Becomes the hatchling.

Rising up ~ breathes fire.
Emerging ~ flaming freedom.
Life transcends its Death!
BE MELTING SNOW. WASH YOURSELF OF YOURSELF.

YOU WANDER FROM ROOM TO ROOM
HUNTING FOR THE DIAMOND NECKLACE
THAT IS ALREADY AROUND YOUR NECK!

DANCE UNTIL YOU SHATTER YOURSELF!

THERE IS A VOICE THAT DOESN'T USE WORDS. LISTEN!

LIFE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO!

LET SILENCE TAKE YOU TO THE CORE OF LIFE!

Be strong and move on
For the best is yet to come
Tomorrows promise.

Dance renews its Light
Phoenix spreads her bright wings
Covering ashes.

Life transcends its death
For eternity is ours
With unending Love.

Tomorrows promise--
Covering ashes of Dark
With unending Love.
