In pitch darkness, hoping to find a shimmer
Walking until my legs shudder and I slip
Nothing to support my weak body
Freely falling into an unknown abyss

Parallel to the plane of the ground
Mother Earth pulling me with all her vigor
Void of any mass, load or burden
Freely moving to her charge

It’s a long travel in the dark
Every second brings in
An increase in the speed of fall
For my mother is waiting afar

Frightened and terrified I become
As I go through, into the deep chasm
Until my head bangs on a boulder
With a quiver,I wake up in the middle of the night

Drenched in sweat
Searching for my pitcher of water
Oh you stupid nightmare!
Yet again, you ruin my night!

  1. Anoope delete this comments after reading ok?anoope please don’t think inspiring means copying ok?if i took the same lines or idea from another haiku surely i will put a note under my haiku.i know even if three lines they have creative minds to write it and to simply use it just not right.also you better know why i still rates maniparna as one of the best haiku writer we have right?but without inspiring i guess you cannot write variety of haikus.variety that is the beauty right?

  2. see now i took a small thing and made a mess.that was why i have a fear and sometimes even when i sit somewhere outside i think if someone has commented in my a friend told me a great lesson to quickly forget the virtual world when you shut down the computer.if i hurt you sorry ok.i think i need to take a break and comeback to blogging when i can take or see things normally right?

  3. anoope forget what i commented last.sometimes my mind just tricks me.sees unlogical and unwanted things.i guess you can see todays match at 10 pm right you are lucky πŸ™‚

    1. I knew I will have to answer this, we were actually giving shooting practice so that they can do well in the finals…So many years and no world cup for the Germs :P. See we are kind-hearted people, so we let you guys play our youngest inexperienced lads.

  5. winning and loosing are a part of football.without neimer brasil was weak and yes after watching first game played by germany i said to my friend watch out germany they looks good πŸ™‚

  6. But there were lot of errors from brazilian defense man.they looked disordered after taking 3 goals.i think germany has taught a lesson to every other team it is not individual players but team work which is important.nobody even noticed klose broke the i fear argentina is next in the list.but in you messy i trust πŸ™‚
