Lost Haven (Tanka of the Day)

I found my concord

in the earth’s perfect dwelling.

Highland’s massive rocks,

seamless and frosty waters

restored my lucidity.

What Shall I Write?

What Shall I Write?

(Sonnet IV)

What shall I write in this world full of words?

This question often muddles my cognizance.

Long hours of discerning dissuades my moods.

So, whisper me your thoughts even in a trance.

Shall I write about the splendor of nature-

Its fecund landscape and verdant vegetation?

The lakes, rivers, and seas- unsoiled and pure!

Or marvel in the ethereal beauty of His creation?

Shall I write about the love story that I once had-

From the time it blossomed until it withered?

Perhaps no one can subtly narrate it even a bard

For it once made me scarred and fragmented.

 Shall I write over and over again?

Or let those thoughts crumble in pain?

What is your Story?

Each of has a story to tell.

My story is not over yet.

Everything that transpired in the past

has led me to where I am today.

 

I am not afraid of my scars.

Each and every scar has a story,

and the fact that the lesions healed

 reminds me that things get well in time.

 

I write my own story.

I can change the way my story goes.

I can introduce new chapters every day.

I can twist its plot to make it interesting.

 

I appreciate those who come along,

but I am entrusted to myself.

I am capable of building my dreams

and achieving peace and happiness.

 

I am a writer-

a writer of my own destiny

where I am my own hero.
