You know it is really funny that we attempt to be verbose, deliberately, because we are scared of Brevity!
Take a look at these examples and decide for yourself :

  • V - The tortuous,  unnecessary words and long winded speech of the Professor lacked a concise content
  • B - Professor lacked Brevity
  • V - Despite the  pretty face, gentle manners and sweet voice of yours I think I am not in love with you.
  • B - Despite your charms I don't love you.
  • V - John have you looked at your self  lately in the mirror?
  • B - John you are Ugly.
  • V - My Sweet Heart I have fallen so deep in love with you I do not know what to do.
  • B - I am raving Mad
  • V - Hey, you know I wore the bracelet you gave me for my last year's birthday to my Aunt's wedding reception.
  • B - Dude, Tomorrow is my Birthday.
  • V - Dad, will it hurt if you eat lot of Ice Creams in winter
  • B - My Stomach pains.
  • V - Dad, is it too bad if you fail to clear your class test with at least a 'B'
  • B - I got a 'C'
  • V - You know something! your mom used to cook so well when she was here last summer That I gained 10 lbs in 3 months.
  • B - You are a lousy cook.
Folks it is in Lighter Vein, Have a Laugh it is good for the Heart.


The Magic Grain

Tiny bits of grain
Could well make a difference
Between life and death

Gifted are those who
Know not how to stay hungry
Or face misery

Share what you have got
With the not so fortunate
Try to whet your soul

The magic of grain
Is sure to appease the pain
Albeit just small

Make a vow tonight
Shall first feed every night
Just before I eat

Hard day's labour pain
Forgotten with gifted grain
Wheat whet appetite

Breathe - Love

Swept away by Love
You are floating with the clouds
Don't forget to breathe


For Haiku-Heights

Rain and roaring waves
Left traces of  deadly tale
Breathe, Irene has left


For Haiku-Heights

Breathe - Nature

Tread with tender care
While you hurt those forest life
Lest you breathe foul Air

When I close my eyes
I can see your charming face
When I breathe the Air
I can feel your gentle Care
Caressing my labored heart

Gentle touch of  hand
Lilting tunes of your voice
Is my lullaby
Drowning all my grief
In your sea of love for me
Always your Baby
First glimpse of the world
Was your face with pride and smile
Clasping my small thumb


For Haiku-Heights     and Gooseberry Garden

Caressing the land ashore

Bearing the chill of winter
Feels like her  Whisper

Bathed in the dew of moist air
Yes the spring whispers!
