Misted


watching the moisture
sticking to the glass,
reminds of my memories;
embedded inside the walls
of my mind

but only for a moment.
droplets trickle down
slowly sliding.
reminiscences remain
ingrained and rooted.

water cleanses away dirt
leaving the surface clean.
thoughts are jammed forever
troubling me, so painful
that I am almost numb.

Voila! I could post this time without a hitch!!

Great!:)I've been having similar thoughts in connection with a bird feeder on a tree. The tree as a labyrinth of our thoughts. How in winter the tree is bare and one sees throught it, and how our true thoughts might be compared, not to branches or leaves, but to birds. But then I though this was preposterous, and deleted the two haiku on this theme from my blog!:)

Blogger has been a real adventure the last couple of days. Very sad.

gautami tripathy said...

borut: how can that be preposterous? Anything that makes us think about life can never be that. Go ahead and repost. I look forward to read your view points.

pat: I have had enough of blogger adventure. So much so that I am sick of it.

Lovely and touching--
Let those sad thoughts slide away--
making soft trails down your mind...
