This is beautiful Maria ! Reply Beautiful assets they are. =) Aj I was going through my totally-stuffed drawer after some long time. It was fun seeing my own things; broken bracelets, letters, gift-wrappers, a lot of ink pens, paint brushes, plus school stuff like essays and speeches wagera! I’ll write a blog on that too, someday. ^_^ Thank you, Lala! :) Reply memories memories memories…. the nicest wealth of some lucky people/…. Reply The nicest wealth of some lucky people, and the living hope for those too that consider themselves unlucky.. :) Thank you so much for your comment, Aiman! Reply u r welcome… Reply “where ONCE we walked hand in hand”. You’re welcome :) Reply You’re right. But that makes it 8 syllables. :/ The haiku isn’t proper anyway. JazakAllah. :) Reply i thought “once” only completes the 7-syllable format. They’re rather six now. No? Have a look: http://www.howmanysyllables.com/wordprocessor Reply Acha okay, sorry. Thank you for the correction. Reply In online syllable counters, “walked” is sometimes erratically grouped with the general di-syllabic order of the past participles though it’s mono-syllabic actually. That’s where High School English classes come in handy. Wa-Iyyak. I didn’t know that. This is where I get help from, because I seriously don’t know much about proper haiku formats and rules, but play still because they’re fun. Glad someone helped(: Aaah This one made me nostalgic. Reminded me of friends & school. :) Short and sweet! :D Reply :) Thank you. Write something about your friends and school. Try a poem, you and Falak. ;) Reply Memories stay And prosper and blossom Waiting for you to come back this way. :) Wonderful :) Hello Maria! How have you been? :) Reply But when you don’t, your words turn knives and wound, like ever before. Hii. I’m doing good, Alhamdulillah. :) Shukrya! Reply And so do visit these un-wandered lanes Which preserve your fears, joys and pains And treasure these pearls as you pass by And don’t let them go, until you die… Alhamdulillah matlab? :) Reply Ah. Nicee. But they won’t. :) People that leave leave for a reason they teach us how to start anew, without hanging on to their very existence that doesn’t exist. But if they do, and return to those forsaken lanes, and collect those ‘pearls’ as they pass by or stay, phir..phir pata nahi. Acha hi hoga . :) Alhamdulillah matlab Allah ka shukar. Like, all thanks to God. Reply Very true :) Ah I missed that part… so here it is Those lanes have pearls… But they are marshy lands… We should visit those lanes of memories But we must also come back… Come back in time… So that only impressions are left… And we are not trapped. Hmm. Trap se bachna is important, not dwelling on them is very important, and so is to re-visit those lanes once in a while to learn or pay tribute to those people that once were. :) Kia kahun. Ap haen hi poet! Ah I love this! Memories can sometimes be as comforting as friends :) x Reply They sure can! Thank you so much, beckarooney! Your visits and comments always mean a lot.. <3 Reply Maria, beautiful haiku, and you know how I love haiku! Margie Reply Thank you so much, Margie! :) Have a great day! (: Reply I seriously wonder where on earth you take such framing of beautiful words with emotions:) Reply Ah thanks! Your supports means A WHOLE LOT to me, Vino. :) Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
