Piety Haiku

cold
infused with fear,
laws, rules
poisoning the fresh minds
with obedience
and innocent souls with trembling.
piety.
what a pity
that it was you that
took over the world
instead of love and
made everyone your bait.
you disciplinary belt of hate.

Empire Haiku

The Empire crumbled.
And the rich man became
a beast who eats grass.
No sound or flesh
can console the panick-sick
pharaoh
whose 17th nightmare mumbles:
Consider the lilies,
Behold the sparrow.

Addiction Haiku or Franny and Zooey

I sobered up, i faced my misery.
Leonard Cohen

To Ilo, my cousin
They tell me you're not well.
That I should call.
And what do i say?
...things you already know.
Is it going to get better?
No. Yes. May be...
Does it matter?
Acccumulating loss
is vulgar like
scraping for gain.
So live...
for no reason..
just because.
and when the demons
roam free
life will be there
all out and ready --
like a branch of
a blue vein
on the extended arm.
Brother, don't beat a dead horse.
It's already been done.
Let it all go.
But first -- your mind.
And there you will find
what we could never see --
the escape --
in everyone and none.

Pious Haiku

One said: I waited for God.
Filling myself with
repentence, hurt.
The other replied:
Break yourself empty.
You will find Him
playing in the dirt.

Changeling Love Haiku

When the sun set
And the seagulls flew,
I was thinking of you.
When the sun rose --
I wasn't.

True Love Haiku

One said to Jesus:
"I admire you, rabbi."
Jesus replied:
Fool. You are shallow.
"What shall I do then?"
the fool asked.
Don't admire. Follow.

Way Haiku

Words barely
brush the surface.
Deeds get to the core.
Be silent.
It's always:
Either/Or

Reality Haiku

A bomb exploded in the cattle market
killing 10 men.
Their limbs strewn randomly
on the bloody pavement
made the last attempt of the flesh
to join the spirit in the impossible leap.
Noone counted the sheep.

Eternity Haiku

Eternity
is no bliss.
It is a nightmare
where alone,
unknown,
you stand
before the One
who knows it all
knows you whole.
Do not let the soothsayers
comfort you in vain
with tunnells of light,
immortal gain
of transcendent hue.
Eternity
where you
finally reach the point of
You.

Love Haiku

Words. They don't impress me.
They are empty,
though not necessarily light.
You didn't use words.
You cut into me with a deed
and against this i have no sword
with which to fight.
Besides, why would i
cut the silent cord
devoid of the lie?

I've always wanted the real.
So here it is.
shut up. sit back. And feel.

Faith Haiku

Very often logic is the movement in the wrong direction.
Nodar Djin
The trees that lose their leaves
stand naked, as if hurt
Do not feel sorry for them
Too much sorrow is often
a sign of a bad mind or worse:
the lack of faith in the absurd.
