Shades of human minds - A Haiku.



Courtesy



The criminal mind
In Search of hullabaloo
To avoid boredom

The ever active mind
Eyes open to spot more zest
Always on the go

The idle mind sinks
Into state of apathy
Sad spiritlessness





The shades of the working of different human minds is the most complex thing to study i guess. I wouldn't explain my haiku, it's pretty straight forward. An idle mind is really sad, so is the criminal one. An ever active mind is the best when used constructively. So which one is yours? 



This Haiku is written for The Heights of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt for today is 'ZEST'.


P.S.   This whole month has been an amazing time with all you fellow bloggers. I wish i had come across this site before April so that i could complete the whole month challenge. But i 've happily succeeded in posting a haiku everyday from the day i began which gives me a great sense of satisfaction and happiness. I would like to thank all of you for making this such a happy month full of comments,compliments,criticisms and good wishes! Hoping for more fun together... Cheers!

    8. i will surely write haiku. but i guess i cannot submit them here anymore. so people would have to find their way to my posts. :)
      i will write. haiku, mine and all of what you people have written, has given me so much. taught me so much. and yes, to be noted, in very few "syllables". :)

  8. The 3 minds are a challenge, Pranita! Idle or criminal are both negative ought to be avoided. Great haiku!
