Tackle It Tuesday, Aleph

Also posted for: The Poetry Pantry #110 of Poets United

Dear Haijin,

Well ... another week has passed by, so a new Tackle It Tuesday has to start. It's a bit early, but I will have a busy week so therefore I thought ... let me post the new Tackle It Tuesday a bit earlier than I did the other episodes. Have fun and enjoy this new Tackle It Tuesday.
This week's theme "Aleph", based on the novel by Paulo Coelho, isn't an easy one. It's really a challenge I think to write a haiku inspired on this wonderful novel by Paulo Coelho. I have read it twice and I found it stunning, very spiritual, very intens and very personal. I can't remember that in his earlier novels he was the main character in the story. In "Aleph", he himself is the main character and I find that great.
I myself am a author too and I can recall the first novel I wrote in 2007 titled: "Netsach, the universe of the seven magical worlds` in which I unknowingly became the main character as my readers told me later.

In the Tackle It Tuesday Preview which I posted on August 8th you can read more about this wonderful novel by Paulo Coelho.

Credits: Inner Fire
lives collide
Inner Fire burns
in the Aleph

in the Aleph
searching for my past
with the one I love

with the one I love
in the middle of the Aleph
lives collide

This wasn´t an easy one, but I loved writing this cascading haiku inspired on `Aleph` by Paulo Coelho.

See you next week for another Tackle It Tuesday.
This one will stay on ´till Monday August 20th 11.59 PM

Have fun, be inspired and please leave a comment after linking. Do you have an idea for a new theme please let me know.

I really like the way it's all connected and that they can still stand alone. This book sounds really interesting!

Love the way it connects. Powerful.

I love the form this poem took: the repetition reinforces the central message very well.

excellent.....Love the 'lives collide'....As I wrote in my post, I am not so sure I get the entire idea of 'aleph', but I am headed to the bookstore and library to find the book to read, and further understand.....Have you ever heard of or read "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" - a wonderful guide to self-discovery.....

I find it refreshing and interesting to see how one approaches this word as a prompt.

"Lives collide" leaves me thinking of CERN. Thank you.

Rachel Hoyt said...

It makes me want to check out the book! Thanks! :)

I think I may not be able to write a haiku or senryu for this word, but I'll keep meditating on it!
