Haiku

I'VE BEEN TRYING TO WRITE SOME HAIKU:

1. The dullness of the Moon
    Brings calmness to the night
    And Yet i walk alone....

2. The chaotic eclipse of life
    Tapping of the certain finger
    Low Voices whisper patiently...

3. Unsure of whats coming next
    The empty stomach refuses food
    And the Rain continues to pour heavily...

4.  Sitting at home
     Contemplating and questioning feelings
     I am only Human...

5.  Stupid acts of delinquency
     Is it amnesia or Alzheimer's kicking in?
     The stars continue to shine...

6.    Gas and Burping continues
       The blanket seems cold as ice,
       Yet i'm dreaming of winning...
    
In Bhutan the phallus is an integral part of ceremonies observed by communities, commonly used to ward off evil spirits and counter evil.
But contrary to the popular perception, the phallus has a world of meaning beyond its obvious symbolism to ward off evil influences. “The phallus is nothing but an artistic folk device by which human beings confront the issue of male ego,” For example the phallus hung from the eaves have a dagger tied to the phallus representing two opposite impulses. “The phallus stands for an illusion and the dagger represents wisdom whereby the two negate each other leading to the sublimation of the human mind,” he said. “In Bhutanese belief the phallus rather represents a worldly illusion of desires.”“In plain terms it is an attempt to do away with the male ego since the phallus in its warped form reminds of problems of male ego.”
