    trapped out
    in the wet-
    out of my brain

    If you like you can check out Poetry Train being run each Monday. It has no prompt as such but poetry is encouraged, haiku included. Do check it out. This would give you wider audience. There are others too. You can explore from my blogroll.

    Brain storm
    whipping the waxing moon —
    a wintry wind

    gautami tripathy – Thanks for the invite! I will check it out. It would be good to break out of my brain, if only on a Monday!

    Tikkis – Nice one! Reads equally well as haiku or a neurological complaint! Hard to achieve that mental feat.

    I am who I am:
    However small you wet brain,
    It is still a trap.

    Is the brain a trap – or an unopened gift? I hope – the latter.

    As to the usefulness of our brain or reasoning power, the last part of a saying attributed to Mohammed could be of some help: Trust in God, but tie your camel first. (A reply to a wild Bedouin, who, hearing for the first time Mohammed preach about God, would only trust, leaving it to God to do all the work)…

    Or – Trust your brain, but tie yourself to God first.

    dark as the sky is
    you can always fill
    the air with sower
