Wedding: Part Three of Three

With this post, I complete my Haiku series. The intertwining theme amongst the three is the pain behind beauty. The setting sun, the ballet and the ballerina, and a glittering wedding – they all are a picture of beauty and awe. Yet sometimes, things are not what they seem. There are tears, fear and a life-long struggle that goes behind that beauty. Is that inspiring? Or disheartening? I leave it upto you to decide whether the glass is half empty or half full.

Tragedy: Part Two of Three

Continuing my Haiku series, I today publish Tragedy: Part Two of Three. As I mentioned, these three pieces share a common theme. I’d like to tell you that a part of this theme is Beauty – or perhaps perception of beauty by the naked eye. A ballet and a ballerina, the sky and the sunset, are all things of beauty. A thing of beauty is a joy forever, isn’t it?

I, Ballerina: Part One of Three

Starting with this post, I’ll be coming up with a series of three Haikus. Trying my hand at Haiku for the first time, I’ve paired these poems with an image that is closest to my mental picture. They are not written strictly as traditional Haikus; they do not limit themselves to nature and they do stand for metaphors. Apparently disconnected, these three posts have a common theme running through them!
