Water's faith - Haiku

(I have been told that many a time my haikus don't make sense. 
So I will try to explain to them when possible. 
And I would love feedback too. Are they really so difficult to unravel?

As for this one, I started to write about a waterfall. Thought of writing a haiku about a hiker and a waterfall. I did write that one but will share it another day.

I liked the thought of water having faith in its' destiny and being happy with falling, hoping that it will finally rise up and meet the creator. Water does rise - evaporate, but it is a cycle. Is it possible to break this cycle?

Is there some water that found a safe haven and got a break from the difficult pattern?)

  1. I don't think your haiku are difficult to unravel, your haiku are a challenge to read that's true, but it gives me, as the reader. a lot to do myself and that's what I like about haiku. It's not only the poet, but also his/her reader ... I like to call that a symbiosis of poetry.
    This haiku is really a beauty and I think it's a nice one in which you challenge the reader ... and there is that deeper meaning ... the circle of life, can it be broken? Well as a Christian I know it's possible to break the circle of life as we have seen as the Lord arose from His grave.

Penning thoughts of what you are feeling how can I? A few days when in material comforts life's essence was changing he was dying I felt shattered I had so much still family, and love, and home what happens when you lose it all? Do you lose yourself too? Enslaved, Uncertain Years on returning home they call it a rescue Am I happy? What am I returning to, I have a home? ©Nimi Arora Prompt by and Shared with- Poets United Midweek Motif - Human Trafficking
