Pass : Haiku

of fond sunshine hours

to whom I pass on that dream...
of mango flowers









  of poppy fields red 

  to whom I pass on that gleam... 
  of raw flamed passion

of cardamom hills
to whom I pass on the smells...
cinnamon nutmeg

                                  of misty vales blest, 
                                  to You kind one! I pass this
                                  lotus from blue stream

  2. Passing on the dream to sunshine, that of passion to blazing red....alluring aroma of cinnamon and the purity of lotus to mist....I wonder at the rich imagination and imagery portrayed by so few words!

    1. Thank you Roohi :)
      Indeed it has a deeper meaning here too Roohi.. in fact the whole set is mystical.
      The blooming of mango flowers followed by passion and aroma of spices ... but all the while asking ' - whom to offer ?"
      and finally dawns the answer to the kind one , the compassionate one that is Buddha ....
      The gift of wisdom (lotus ) from blue stream (misery of world) and misty vale ( land of illusion, ephemeral as mist )

      Thanks for the read girl ! :)
