blazing with anger,
fingers tapping at a screen
send emotion-bits.

These emotion crumbs -
leftovers from pain long gone
will be swept away.
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

will be swept away
by the wave of emotions
into the unknown.
I only put my signature on big cheques.

the unknown is a
more familiar place than
clear understanding.
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.

clear understanding
cannot exist when we don't
understand ourselves

understand ourselves
through quiet introspection
embracing the truth.

Embracing the truth,
no matter how difficult,
enlightens the soul
Made of magic and unfulfilled dreams

enlightens the soul
by planting seeds of self-love,
letting it spread joy.

let the joy spread far
and wide, slowly oozing as
buoyant lava does.
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.

bubbly lava drips
from the sky, a product of
the hate we unleash

Spoiler! :
@whatchamacallit @Hkumar this is kind of random, but I love seeing you guys post here <3

Hkumar, I love how your latest haiku is so positive. You always include meaningful and powerful imagery in your haikus, even when they are simple images. I feel like you could make a haiku with any and every single line given to you. I love reading how you make the lines given to you your own <3

whatcha, your imagery is always so unique, and you bring thought provoking ideas to my mind. "the unknown is a more familiar place" one is probably one of my favourite ones you've written. That's such a neat concept to think about. And "buoyant lava"? I absolutely love that line!

YOU GUYS ARE COOL

let it channel out
the hateful sorrow and grief
no more joy again
when you feel like you finally want to write something but homework exists

and now it is gone.

now it is all gone;
the sun sinks ominously
below x-axis.

below x-axis,
deep sea darkness thickens black;
eyes open, glowing.
