Five haiku poems:Bruised, yet hopeful

This is my first collaboration with the brilliant Rose of Poet Rummager…

Within this brick wall, lies my heart where no light shines. Rejected, it sleeps. Hidden in the dark – dreaming so damn hard and tight. You’re not mine, it weeps. In this tiny room, my heart beats against the stone – bruised yet still hopeful. Bleeding and in pain, it yearns to be free again. […]

That Summer Morning

That Summer Morning

On a cold summer morning
I got my phone ringing.

Thinking twas a prank
I ignored and stared at a blank.

A return call message i received
I dialed, hoping i am not deceived.

I heard someone on the other line
Sobbing, crying, weeping in thine.

“He’s gone”, was all i can hear
I wept, i cried ’till i can’t bear.

’twas that summer morning
I heard the news of you leaving.

You left without saying goodbye
It broke my heart in pieces, i could die.

The sun was shining
But the rain came pouring.

Every drop of the rain
Is every drop of my pain.

Will someone wake me up
“You’re dreaming, get up”.

But reality holds true
You’re gone, didn’t know what to do.

Today I woke up with a rain drop falling
A reminder of how much i am longing.

For i remembered, every drop of the rain
Is every drop of my pain.

It’s been seven years dad
And i still felt bad.

On that cold summer morning
You left me while it was raining.

I miss you dad, please come back.
P.S.

The day i started my summer rain theme, was the same day i didn’t know what to write, and the very same day the first heavy summer rain fell.
As the rain came pouring, i kept writing.
Its been a month though.
You all enjoyed my summer rain theme as much as i enjoyed writing them.
Little did i know that this is not just simply about inspiration to write..or a spike for my stats…or a way to touch your hearts.

Today i woke up with a promise I’d move on to another theme.

But then i opened my window curtain and saw the rain drops falling.

And it hit me….

On this very same occassion seven years ago as i opened my window curtain looking at the summer rain falling, that i was told my dad, passed away.

Now i understand where my “summer rain” theme came all the way.

Thanks Dad, you never left me all along.

You lead me to this day. On your death anniversary. As i write each poem. I poured out every single emotion there was in me. That today, i felt a lot better. Better than those early years you were gone.

Thanks Dad… you truely are amazing..even when you are gone!!!

Mysterious Rain

You are a picture of quiet serenity
Plunge into darkness
Out of the blue
And…on a hot
weary afternoon
Amidst silence
And shimmering heat
You become hot as a horse radish
Steamy as a terrarium
Then you gently thickened
You poured..

That mysterious rain
On a scorching summer afternoon

 

p.s.

the heat is on…its officially summer…but a little rain could be mysteriously stunning. .

There you go..another “Summer Rain”..

My Summer Rain

Love goes, they say
When the pain of loving
Is too much to bear
When you
Can hope no more
Wish no more
When the heart
finally gets tired…
Of hoping…
Of dreaming…
Of waiting..
Then love goes…

My love, i say will never go.
Even when it has been very painful
Or too much to hold still
Because all I
Wanna do is
Wish for more.
My heart will never be tired
Of hoping…
Of dreaming..
Of waiting…
My love will never go

‘Cos i found the summer rain in you

 

 

P.S.

I have been doing this summer rain theme for quite a while..and it has inspired me so much that i just can’t stop yet.

I wish you find your “Summer Rain” too

***A beautiful afternoon Summer Rain in Singapore***

O, Summer Rain Don’t Go

O Summer Rain Don’t Go

Loveless tide swept
In the seashore
Where i once stand
Alone and unsure

There, we’re together
Walking by the shore
Looking gently at the sea
Gazing through your smile

Our eyes met then
Our hearts touched
As deeply we felt
That loving feeling within

But now its gone
Carried by the tide
Back to the sea
Where once we’re together

Bring back my love oh thee
In the seashore where we shared
The afternoon summer rain drizzle
Over our kisses and sweet embrace.

Oh summer rain don’t go
No, not yet i can’t let go..

P.S.

It seemed to me that summer rain isn’t over, as it still continues to inspire me with beautiful thoughts and endearing moments…that rain, once shared with the one you love is perfectly beautiful no matter what time of the year it may come.

Ahhhhh summer rain..look what have you done !!!

Summer Rain Ends

O, shocked were my senses
Upon hearing the truth
Its breaking my heart
Though i did not want to believe
From the start

Why have you kept me hoping so long?
Why have you treated me so kind;
And beaten me so hard?

Is that how to accept threats?
Is that how to understand punishments?
Is that how trust fails?
Is that how love hurts?

Is that how summer rain ends?

 

P.S.

This is hopefully the end of my summer rain theme..
