Anger and Audacity : Haiku

Firsts. Always special. This one is too. My first attempt at participating in April A-to-Z Challenge and I am super excited as well as nervous. After banging my head for hours about what should I be writing and then finding myself in another confusion of whether to theme or not to theme, I found a way out.

Some insanity demon took over me and I decided to do two posts for every letter. Yes, go ahead; call me over ambitious or foolish. So for this year, I am going to theme as well as not theme.

For the theme part, I decided to put up Haiku (a form of Japanese poetry with 17 syllables) for every letter of the alphabet depicting some or the other human emotion. And for the non-themed part, well, what do I say? For now, here is my haiku for the day.

Anger
My kohl misplaced
Condition of this country around
Boiling I am


Audacity
Violating womanhood
Audacious still
Clothes and conduct blamed


This post is written as a part of April A to Z Challenge 2014. The Non-themed posts can be found here.
