Dreams from a trance
Or in them, visions of dead past;
What does future hold?

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. A mixture of the future and things we bring from the past?

    Am amazed by how your ideas are expressed simply with short phrases…

    @Clariice: Yes, perhaps a mixture.. It usually is I guess 🙂

  2. Trance, vision, future..all go along well in place! Nice concept…great haiku as always!

    @Fiducia: Glad to have you here, as always 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Beautiful poem 🙂 I especially love the wording in this part: … visions of dead past.

    The future can be a happy dream or a nightmare. It’s up to you.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Leo!

    @Ena: Yeah, it is up to is, but the wonderment is always there of course! Was nice visiting your blog too 🙂

  4. let bygone be gone,
    stay upbeat about the future…

    bright future is for decent/positive folks.

    thanks for the open minded wonder, lovely Haiku.

    @Jingle: Yeah. staying open minded would be nice 🙂

  5. no one knows what it holds, and all of us are indeed in a trance of that anticipation.

    @Paulami: Yeah, an eerie wait to find out the unknown..

  6. I don’t go there! One day at a time……….

    But … I really like your haiku!

    @Snap: I don’t either 😀 But, it is part of my thought!

  7. This haiku will stay with me for a while I think… so much in it. Thank you!

    @Marit: Glad you liked it 🙂 Thank you too!

  8. Thought-provoking, Leo! Like a Zen koan… I remember Alice in Alice in Wonderland saying, “Jam yesterday, jam tomorrow, but do I get paid today?” I think it’s human nature to reminisce about the past and dream of what is to come but not being aware of the present. It’s an endless cycle of thoughts, isn’t it? An amazing haiku.

    @Margaret: Yes, life is an endless circle of thought. And one aspect of that cycle that is totally a mystery is time. Glad you felt it amazing!

  9. Isn’t it wonderful, how much you can convey, with so few words? A superb haiku… =)

    @Rosie: Yes, a haiku is challenging for that reason!

  10. Suspended between memory and future projections, but not anchored in the moment. When I find myself there, I try to center again.

    @Meri: It is so hard to focus on the present, isn’t it?

  11. Alternatively,
    The Carnival sits,
    On laughters that make roses,
    gypsies of chanting.

    Nice to have read your blog.:)

    @Sheelonee: Thank you 🙂 Glad to have you read my blog too.

  12. I think it is interesting but then again Tennyson once said,
    “We rise on stepping stones of our dead selves to higher things.”

    @Noelle: Very true that.. Thanks Noelle! 🙂
