Drowning in ennui - A Haiku.

Courtesy




The vista beckons
Springs up a rainbow for her
More mollycoddle

Her eyes still stare long
Endless panorama reigns
Drowning in ennui

Open inner eyes
When heart fails to see colors
Life is black and white







When sadness enters our lives, most of us refuse to see the brighter side. We choose to continue being in the dark for a long long time. There are so many people we love who try to cheer us up, pamper us, but we continue to drown in the feeling of  a tedious boredom. Life seems to come to a halt and we look at the colorful world with a black and white view. It's then time to open the inner eyes, so our heart can capture the beauty the world has in store for us and be happy again!



This Haiku is written for The Heights of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt is 'ANY TOPIC' for today and so i chose 'ENNUI'.

  12. i would say "thank you very much" and leave for you, to measure, the extent to which your haiku moved me and left me in a bright, slightly painful sync with those words!

    so....thank you very much. :)
