Irony : Haiku

IndiBlogger Badge

ManiKarnika Ghat Varanasi : Here


                                                  Flames of pyre, Ablaze

                                                  spurting grief, sorrow, anguish 
                                                  It dawns am Alive.


Note : Above haiku got made out of a comment by my fellow Blogger friend Ravish Mani

    1. Thanks Sindhu ...yeah, even I was taken aback for a moment with the idea ... it was reflected by a response by Ravish.

  5. No words for depth of that insight, Kokila, better than yours.... And the picture is sufficient to awaken a drowsy soul (not sleepy one ;) )

    Your two haikus together reminded me of two very famous ghazal lines:

    Jane kis kis ki maut ayee hai, aaj rukh pe naqab nahi.

    Wo aur honge jinhe maut ayee hogi, nigahen yaar se mili hai zindgi hamen.

    Your two haikus saying on same thing but with different perspective. Very well written. My best wishes is always with you :)

    1. You are kind with your words Ravish.. and they actually made me feel good and inspired :)
      I like you differentiating btw a sleepy and a drowsy one :) And the way you have summarised the 2 Haikus together by this sher, as a new idea.. again !
      humble thanks for your wishes :)

    3. It's your generosity, Kokila, that you're sharing its credit with me. And I'm really grateful to you for this. But this idea was destined to be expressed in one of the best haikus through you and it just chose me as medium. That's it :)

  9. The irony of life...once you see that funeral pyre, once you see death, the next moment you feel that you are alive....you respect life but do not fear death anymore.....beautifully written

  12. Kokila, this is excellent. Doesn't feel like you have just started to write Haiku.
    I liked Datta's analysis. But when I read I actually had a different sense to it. I thought of it more like life beyond death where the pyre burns out all the distress and detaches you from the worldly feelings ...

    1. Great Vidhya ! Even I agree with Datta.. but, you actually felt it that way!
      Before you only my mother was the one to see it like that ... for her , this was the natural interpretation while the other a forced one. Amazing depth girl !Its the connoisseur who transforms a nugget of coloured glass to a gem...
