I write faster – Haibun

I am an apprentice wordsmith mastering the trade slowly but surely.

I write for myself and others too with joy. The pain is not in poetry but in the lonely boring life one leads. The poems are actually antidotes for the pain. But only when the outer world connects with and enjoys your work can there be true joy for yourselves. I scribble rapidly one thought after next capturing momentous emotions. Yet I too yearn for those near perfect verses that transport and enthral its readers. But there are times when my imperfections make me smile and be content.

I write faster than you can read

surely hurried there must be several imperfections

how then can I succeed?

I write with ease

I Write with ease and shall write as I please,
oh world, swallow my words and hold me high,
I will conquer all before ends my life’s lease.

for etched in me are the pain and the mysteries,
that I chase away each day with my toil and not cry,
I write with ease and shall write as I please.

chasing lofty aims I seek honey with the bees,
dare stop me in my quest, oh, fate, you do try,
I will conquer all before ends my life’s lease.

I shall strive to give shade though I lack it, like trees,
some seasons been good to me, though some left me dry,
I write with ease and shall write as I please.

with time, effort and company the pain does decrease,
some day will totally cease, for my dreams I’ll fight till I die,
I will conquer all before ends my life’s lease.

those that scorned shall come flocking like geese,
my words conquer, me the one without words, ever shy,
I write with ease and shall write as I please,
I will conquer all before ends my life’s lease.
