For the Haiku prompt at Ronovan Writes
My problem here is the problem of plenty; this is a prompt that had me thinking in so many ways and instead of distilling them into one topic, I thought, well, you know, the more the merrier.
A lot of times I find myself crying for mankind. It is difficult watching your kind slaughter themselves in the name of religion, caste, sex, race, opinions, land etc.
And so, to them I say
We kill and maim all
Can our species last the night
Better find the love
And of course, while talking about love, can I forget my darling, my precious, the reason for my downfall – chocolate!
Nothing lasts forever
Love for chocolate has died
Time to start dieting
And then, to round it off, who could have taught me better to love than my own mother.
Last but not the least
My mother’s lesson on love
Fix it daily, love.
Time to start working on my relationships – As I grow, I see that these need nurturing, pruning, watering, sunshine and loving. The trick of course is to know when to stop so that you don’t smother them.
