Carpe Diem Haiku *Dawn*

“At The Dawn” – song by E.Grishkovets&Brainstorm:

No, no, I already know…I know that my youth is over. Right now all I can do is remember. But I remember that back in my youth I did not feel happy. I felt quite the opposite – that it was complicated, nobody understood me, didn’ t hear me…but now I know: back there and then it was happiness. Though in those days I knew nothing. And waited for something! And I had the feeling somebody was calling me…

At the dawn voices are calling me…

And what was I waiting for? I waited for an amazing destiny, unique life. I wanted to feel everything, to try everything – so much and as soon as possible. I could walk down the street with my reflections in the windows and hope strongly that somebody will fall in love with me and is waiting out there…for me. I could also stay awake till the morning thinking and feeling that very soon, already this morning, so soon … soon …

At the dawn voices are calling me…

And there, in my youth, when I looked at the morning mist over the river as I was returning home in an early hour through the sleeping city, it always seemed to me, or more like, I was sure that they were calling me … particularly me…

At the dawn voices are calling me…

Youth is gone… But life goes on. It gives us moments of happiness, and tries to break us now and then… The multi-faceted life. And after ten years, we realize that we have been happy, but haven’ t noticed it…yet again. We should simply appreciate it right here and right now, for what it is … Life itself is happiness…

* * *
wandering
in mist of awaking city
dreams of my youth

  1. that was lovely with the music, not sure how it would go but it went well 🙂

    This bit esp caught my eye:

    we realize that we have been happy, but haven’ t noticed it…yet again. We should simply appreciate it right here and right now, for what it is … Life itself is happiness…

    So often we just don’t even take time to appreciate what has just happened

    Great post xx

  2. “we realize that we have been happy, but haven’ t noticed it…yet again.” These words are profound Ese. I think it’s the experience of so many of us. I look back on certain aspects of my life and know it to be true. A rich post. 🙂

  3. Lovely reflections, Ese. Though I made many mistakes I would not trade the passions of my youth for anything. But with age comes more experience of course, and a finesse that makes all things beautiful and worthwhile.

    1. I think it is beautiful to be able to look back at the years in the past and still, despite to not only ups but, especially, downs, feel no regrets and sorries. Often things not being all perfect is what makes them beautiful and worth to remember.

  5. I enjoyed reading your beautiful and wise reflections. I think as we get older our memories of our youth are more appreciated than when we sometimes lived them. Your haiku and video are exquisite!
