SOME TANKA: R.K.SINGH

Postby rksingh » Mon May 05, 2008 4:41 am

Watching the moon
in the western horizon
two haiku poets
scratch each other's back and mock
the rest as neophytes



Silence of birds
and moon so miserly
I feel homesick:
mists, fogs and leaflessness
add to monotony


Couldn't sleep all night
darkness of thought spread over
the mind with closed eyes
I negotiate fear
of missing the moon and loss


Her letter smells
the lotus she wore each time
meeting in the moon:
I touch her fingers again
with all the hopes and tensions


The fragrance of rose
seeps through the windows
coupled with full moon
adds to my delight though I'm
alone in my bed tonight


When I roll within
veins crackle like dried wood
brathing is oppressed
I can't leave the four walls
to survive midnight attack


Resting his chin
on the back of his palms
he stands at
the dusted railing to watch
the planes roar and take off


Unable to see
beyond his nose he says
he meditates
and sees visions of Buddha
weeping for us


A mist covers
the valley of her body
leaves memories
like the shiver of cherry
in dreamy January


I love her undress
the light with eyes that spring
passion with kisses
she leaves her name again
for my breath to pass through


Ghosts rise to mate
in moonlight tear the tombs
frighten with fingers
rhino horns rock the centre
granite sensation

That is holding a breath! It's like a light romance!
I am not in my way, it's only reflection.
My innocent soul has not ressurection.
