Finding epitome of life.

Courtesy



Gazing faraway
Deep into the unseen fog
Alienated

Peering into space
Find epitome of life
Aliens wave back






Sometimes, we find the meaning of our existence amongst beings, not our own!!!



This Haiku is written for the Haiku Heights. The prompt for this week is 'ALIEN'.

  2. Well written. Sometimes we find the meanings of our existence amongst beings, not our own. I fully subscribe to that. When I am in the wilds, watching the unalloyed love between various animals I do realise the meaning of the word "human". We humans have forgotten it.

  4. I like the first haiku a lot... the feeling of being alienated as I continue to gaze... Brilliant..

  5. It's a nice thought-that aliens would be friendly. On Alien movies, I like "District 9". Enjoyed reading this.

  6. This is an interesting challenge...but alien is a matter of perspective. What is ordinary to you, maybe extraordinary to me. I like the first one, the feeling of alienated as this is an experience everyone can relate to ~

      LOL.. i've used 'wave' as a way of sayin sometimes we find comfort in the unknown, the unfamiliar!

  8. The idea of finding our own meaning in other beings is delightful! Love the waving image in the last line of the haiku!

  14. True thought... And very sweetly framed..

    Sometime I stare at the sky asking myself so many questions? "aaahh...What a wonderful world?" "We are just a tiniest part of this and we behave as if we are the kings of this world.. lol.. How stupid?"
