I Coo, You Coo, Let’s Do Haiku

 

I just wanna run.

Just go somewhere far away;

Far away from here.

 

Do something crazy.

Live my life outside the box.

This box called Normal.

 

So much there to see.

So much there to discover.

More to uncover.

 

Maybe I could learn,

Where the sun tucks in to sleep,

Where it yawns to rise.

 

Where the moon’s arms are.

How it tilts the earth to cause

The sea’s tides to rise.

 

How the waves are formed.

To push wooden boats so far,

Without drowning them.

 

How the winged beasts float.

How they drift through the clear blue

Currents of the sky.

 

How the metal birds

Use their advanced mechanics

To float the same way.

 

How gravity works,

To make animals and man

Attached to the soil.

 

How the fish can breathe.

Water rushing through their gills,

Making them weightless.

 

How the human race,

Is able to coexist

With their differences.

 

Then while I’m at it,

I’ll learn all the other things,

That are there to learn.

 

How to be happy.

How to live with no regrets;

To be wild and free.

 

To be well-to-do,

While doing the things I love.

Making things balance.

 

How to give out, too.

First, love without guarantee.

Then, reciprocate.

 

How to fall in love.

How to feel for someone like

I feel for no one.

 

Learn how to wake up,

Surrounded by so much love;

Endless affection.

 

How to be stared at,

Like I was the only one

Left to love on earth.

 

Before I get there,

I will learn to find myself,

And get to know me.

 

What my purpose is,

All that it is I enjoy

Doing by myself.

 

Before others come,

I’ll learn to enjoy dwelling

In this solitude.
