Haiku - My Heart Speaks

The peace I look for,
Serenades me in calm flow,
Unperturbed journey.

Rustling among leaves,
Songs so heavenly laden,
Life for my dry soul.

Lullaby me so,
With tender sounds of beauty,
Mesmerise my dreams.

Gentle caresses,
Awakes the barren feeling,
A life is brought back.

Written with love,
Saturday evening

  11. Balqis,
    Quite often you have stunned me with your creativity and your skill on words; those one right here has moreover been an amazement to me. I wonder, how you come up with such a serene idea.
    The flow of words, the skillful definition of moments and the right kinds of feelings to bring all that imagination to a lively mode. It's just you and you are really gifted.
    Keep on exploring more.

  12. Thanks a lot, Dex. The idea came to my mind and I penned it down. Sometimes, it's sudden thought. I look at what's around me and think of its beauty. Put the words together and came up with this haiku. I appreciate nature so much and I link it with my feelings.

    Thank you for giving me the encouragement. :)
