fleeting moments do just that

faces wither on”

idle dreams – a haiku



“Unforgiving  winds

Stray cat wanders about as
Its fur is left combed “ 
~ zaheedah
As I take on this hostile period of my life, seeking out my earthly purpose – a temporary abode for my ambitious mind. Violent winds oppress me as I attempt  to glide on surreptitiously, the way of a cat. Still, I carve my way forward through the heavy dust and I’m left with a reminder – a scar of forcibly combed fur. 

Ice haiku

“A snow flake future
Fleeting white abundance ends
In shallow puddles”
~ zaheedah 
Life and it’s miraculous robust joy-filled moments which prove to be near non-existent by the end of the day; they dissolve away like a minute snow flake…yet hope remains disguised as a puddle.

“Thunder nags causing the earth to shiver.
Toes tingling, feet pulsating, circuits of exhilaration surge throughout the legs. You hasten out to the heavens praying- not by words but through joy:
worship in the form of hope
devotion depicted by high spirits.
Above, the electric sky leaks tucked giftlets of Compassion. Let it rain.”
~ zaheedah
