White wings soaring high - A Haiku.


Courtesy

Tossing and turning
Eyes not shut, still dreaming on
White wings soaring high 

--------------------------------

You see white in black 
The good in bad, right in wrong
Why turn a blind eye?

-------------------------------

Fireflies in jar
You force em in with a lid?
Glow even when trapped



They say dreams are not only what you see when you are sleeping. Real dreams are the ones which don't let you sleep. Watching dreams with open eyes, planning and then living it someday is what we call dreams coming true i think. 

As i've mentioned in one of my previous haiku, every situation seems to have two sides. You can always find something good in a bad situation, and negative in every positive one. It's all about the perspective. All about what we choose to see. So no use turning a blind eye to the less obvious.

Fireflies like real dreams strive to light up the world, not just home. Even after trapping them in a jar, they still give you light. Just like people with real dreams. They are trapped by the stereotypical, not-ready-to-change people around, but does that keep them chained to their home? No! They work, they toil, they strive, they glow at any cost. Their dreams - their driving forces.


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

  9. In every problem, there is an opportunity. I would like to believe that in every bad person, there is some good. Hard to do sometimes.

    1. Very true... I like to believe that too.. Sometimes this belief gets misused by others in us!

  10. Why turn a blind eye? you ask.

    Because sometimes it's just too painful to get involved...
