What is this madness?

What is this madness?

I wake before dawn

Having slept at its onset

Verily refreshed

 

If you are handler

Let my body be handles

That you may hold me

 

Thoughts of you suffuse

My very core as they light

Every handle’s fires

 

I became candle

That you may see in the dark

During your journeys

 

I became your feet

That I may lift your being

To the highest states

 

Elevated, free

You trod upon me never

We flew in heavens

 

Like your cloak of skies

I sleep with your sweet setting

Within me you rise

 

The suns wilting, skulk

At this radiance of you

As your soul unfolds

 

The moon unabashed

Held mirror to your image

And stole your silver

 

Sun and moon conspired

In wake of your glorious light

To cast you shadows

 

What is this madness

That day is night, night is day

And you stay the One?

One thought on “What is this madness?

  1. I just wanted to mention again that aside from following traditional Haiku measure (5-7-5 stanza), I also like putting sentences within my Haikus where the last word of every line in a stanza composes with the rest of the other two a sentence (or sometimes only a notion).
    In this Haiku they are (for me but others can be found sometimes) Dawn onset refreshed – Handler handles me – Fires suffuse light – Dark journeys’ candle – Being states feet – Never free heavens – Skies setting rise – Skulk unfolds you – Silver image unabashed – Shadows conspired Light – Madness one day?
