Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

I see the unending horizon from afar
I feel the loneliness that’s far beyond
I don’t know the reason alienating the star
Why is it from me, you’re so very far ?

A line that divides the ocean from the sky
As I get closer, it runs away from my eyes
The nearer I get, the farther the horizon
When do I get warm to your distant emotion ?

I can only see the stars at night
The day seems so envious they’re out of sight
When skies are clear, you choose night to appear
Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

There’s no losing chance for a heart that waits
Time will tell when to open the gates
The far horizon and the stars at night
Into my heart they will all be tied…

Haiku # 14 – Prose/Water

Three fourths of the earth’s surface is water. The ocean is a body of water and it composes the earth’s hydrosphere. It is salt water on the surface of our earth. All elevated lands can be covered by the earth’s oceans. Humans need water for survival and so with other floras and faunas. Our body is 60 per cent water and our brain is 70 per cent. We need water to stay hydrated for the day. So we must drink 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water everyday. Rain can be a good source of drinking water if properly harvested. I drank two glasses of water last night before I sleep. It was a deep sleep that I swam the ocean in my dream. Under the droplets of rain, the dream went on. My ceiling had a leak and rain water was dripping on my crouch. In the middle of the sleep I was wet all over my hips and had to change my brief and pajamas while the roaring rain of dawn cursed.
