#Haiku Happenings #5: judeitakali’s latest #tankaprose for Colleen Chesebro’s latest challenge (courtesy of Reena Saxena)!
Only we can truly know,
the things that taint/feed our souls.
the puzzle of life
paths painted by tradition
a key missing piece
for souls come in special shades
and lost dreams turn to nightmares
I catch a glimpse of a forgotten dream; of whom she was and who we could have been, ignoring why we couldn’t be, and riding the tides of reminiscence; to the barren shores of my regret.
A portal through time
to find that missing feeling
dreams not meant to be
for more I look, more I crave
till hope festers to dismay
I chased her back to better days; of cherry blossoms and purple moons. And though shadows lay in wait; of toxic ways and seismic moods, it’s what I’d always wanted!
For perfection was a dream, that had become a nightmare.
