Tobermory (A Haiku Collection)

Collage_20160224-054903

Author’s Note: This is long overdue. I visited Tobermory last September and that place is really amazing. It’s been five months and I’m still inspired to write about it (finally!). Tobermory is located in Ontario, Canada, around 5hr drive (to North) from Toronto and it involves trekking. The 5-hr drive and the hike are all worth it. I wish to go back there this summer and be once again inspired with nature.

Endure every step
An amazement is waiting
Nature’s true beauty

A water so clear
A lake so still and peaceful
It’s pure, it’s calming

Rocks in various forms
Arts and shapes leaving an awe
Nature’s mystery

A view from the cliff
It’s grotto, blue sky, vast lake
It’s tranquility

Sky changed to orange
Stars spreading in horizon
Truly inspiring

Enjoy every hike
Journey to a miracle
It’s Tobermory

I Still Cry (5-7-5 Collection)

Author’s Note: These aren’t haiku but these are using the usual number of syllables in a haiku, which is 5-7-5. Anyways, I wrote these a couple of months after my mom passed away.

I.
Thought that you’re not here
Life gets tougher and tougher
Missing you badly

II.
You’re happy out there
No more agony and pain
But here’s different

III.
Moments of sadness
Memories I cannot bear
Tears keep on rolling

IV.
My birthday is near
It’s the first that you’re not here
Missing you badly

V.
It has been four months
I cannot cope, can’t adjust
It still makes me cry
