Short poems with haikus

Shining golden sun,

Casting shadows on the ground,

No plumule grows there

 

 

Waves crash on the rocks,

Breaks into million pieces,

Like my soul and heart

 

 

Birds fly in the sky,

My soul soars above the clouds,

But chained to the ground

 

 

The prey gallops towards his deathbed,

His claws colour the snow in red

 

 

Green, Yellow, Red,

The leaves change colour and fall,

The earth accepts them all.

 

 

Flowers thrown in the sea,

As offerings each,

All returned back to the beach

 

 

In the desert, the red ball burns

Leaves turn thorns to save what everyone yearns

 

 

“Carry my children away

from this cruel world, Great Bird”

Said the tree.

 

 

A plant grows from the soil,

Roots dig deeper into its ancestor’s grave

 

 

As the summer ends,

Flames on the Gulmohar tree,

The rain sets them free.

 

 

The sun sets,

I wait for the birds’ last song,

Before their slumber long.

 

 

Alone in the forest,

I walk to silence my mind,

Crickets chirp around.

 

 

“I fly” said the fish,

While gasping for air to breathe,

Talons were his wings.

 

 

Alone in the hut,

“Will you sing with me?” I ask,

The nearby gold lark.

 

 

I am never alone in my hut,

Sun, Moon, Plum blossoms give me company.

 

 

The pearl hidden inside the oyster,

Are you the pearl or the oyster?

Chapter 9: Fallout

Begeta punched Frieza but he blocked it. He started hitting Frieza with a series of kicks, punches and energy blasts. Frieza just stood defensively. He never cancelled out the attacks. Begeta said “Fight me seriously.  If you continue to do this, you will die eventually”. Frieza said “You’re my child. I have raised you. I will not kill you. I had lost hope before but your brother hasn’t. For him, I wont harm you”. Begeta said “Fine!!! Fool die” Begeta raised his power level and unleashed a massive energy blast and screamed “Death Beam”. Gohan said “Move Frieza. It might not kill you but it will injure you alot”. Goku said “Stop Gohan. He knows what he is doing. This is not just a random fight anymore for him. It is a way bring his son home” Frieza took the blast. He stood there for a few seconds and then fell on his knees. Begeta said “Now this is the end for you Frieza”. Frieza smiled and said “It is time to finally atone for my sins. I would rather have you deliver the punishment. You will always be my son. Just promise me one thing. Take care of your brother”. Frieza then removed the bracelet from his hand and said “Here, Cooler wanted to give you this”. Begeta was stunned. He never witnessed so much of love from anyone. He remembered his childhood days. Training sessions with his brother, the kindness of his father, his teachings. He started crying and screamed “Damn it!!! I can’t do this!!! I cant kill my family”. Everyone was happy but it was short lived. The very next second, there was large hole in Begeta’s chest. Kakarotto had fired an energy blast right through Begeta and he muttered pathetic. Begeta fell to the ground with the bracelet in his hand which was covered in blood now. Frieza screamed “NOOOO!!! BEGETA”. Begeta said with tears in his eyes “I… am… sor.. sorry for the trouble… I…. caused. Plea…. please… te…. tell Cooler thank you for the bracelet. Thank you for everything”. With these final words, Begeta died. Frieza was crying and screamed “I wont forgive you Kakarotto. You attacked him from behind”. Kakarotto said with an evil grin “Oh dont worry Frieza. You will join him soon” After saying this Kakarotto fired an energy blast at him. But it was deflected by Goku and he said in anger “You are just evil. Killing your own friends and innocent people. I will stop you” and he charged towards Kakarotto.

Kakarotto also charged towards him. Both of them clashed and created a blast wave of energy. Each punch was parried. The energy blasts were either deflected or were cancelled by their own energy blasts. Kakarotto said “You are a joke. You’re so naive. I never thought I could ever be like you”. Goku replied “At least we feel the same way about each other”. Kakarotto said “You are so stupid. Your mistake proved fatal for your best friend. You killed so many innocent people. YOU ARE A MURDERER!!!” Goku screamed in anger and charged towards him. Kakarotto smirked and said “You’re full of openings. I have you now”. He said “Ka. Me. Ha. Me. Haaaa”. A navy blue beam was unleashed. It was going towards Goku and it hit him. Gohan screamed “Father!!!!”. But Goku was pushing through the beam. He was driven by his anger. Kakarotto was shocked. He then raced towards Goku to punch him. He punched Goku in his face. Even though Goku was injured, it seemed the punch didn’t faze him. Goku then kicked Kakarotto in his guts. Kakarotto put his hands on his stomach and fell on his knees and coughed alot. Goku said “Now you will see the worst side of me”. There was a feeling of eerie. There was a cold wind blowing. Kakarotto said “You will not beat me. I have restricted your power”. He then flew away and started firing energy blasts. Goku deflected them and then flew towards him. Both engaged in hand to hand combat. Goku was slowly overpowering him. Kakarotto thought to himself “What is happening?? Why is his power level still increasing??!!” Goku said “You still haven’t figured how we are raising our power levels right? I will tell you. Your medicine does work but if we increase our metabolism, the effects start waring off. I realised it first when I found with Vegeta”. Hearing this Kakarotto was scared. He knew he would lose the battle. He decided to play dirty. He started shooting energy blasts everywhere. His targets were Goku’s friends.  Goten, Trunks, Piccolo, Gohan, Vegeta and Frieza. Gohan and Vegeta were able to protect their injured and unconscious friends but in doing so were hit by energy blasts. This pissed off Goku. He screamed “Now you die!!!” Now Goku started hitting Kakarotto with all his might. He punched him several times. Kakarotto fell to the ground and he said “Hahahah. You are a killer Goku. He may lose here but at least I destroyed your morale code”. Goku still kept punching him “You are evil. You harmed Krillin. You made me kill all those innocent soldiers. I will kill you”. Each punch made Goku’s fist much more red. Kakarotto was totally bloodied up. Gohan screamed “Enough Father!!! You will kill him”. Goku wasnt listening. Then as he was about to throw another punch, his arm was held back by someone. It was Vegeta. He said “Kakarot, enough of this. Stop. Killing him wont bring back those soldiers back. You have to move on. Dont become a murderer in front of your children”. Goku suddenly had an epiphany. Vegeta was right. This wasnt his fault. Tears started flowing out of his eyes. He felt a huge burden was lifted off him. Frieza then limped towards Kakarotto and said “We have won, you worm”.

Few days later, all of the Z-fighters were with Frieza. All were healthy and fine. Even Frieza had recovered. Goku asked “Are you sure they wont cause anymore trouble?” Frieza said “Yes, I am sure. Based on the drugs inside your bodies, we were able to reverse engineer the drugs and make them better. These drugs will keep their power levels to a minimum”. Goten said “That sounds good”. Trunks said “I am happy that you gave Begeta a proper burial. He seemed like a nice guy, just a wrong group of friends”. Gohan asked “Frieza, will you will be ok?” Frieza replied, while looking at Goku, “I think i will be fine. Some wounds take a little longer to heal”. Vegeta said “We should get going. Bulma must be getting worried”. Frieza said “It is good thing. We destroyed all of the blue prints of this technology. I would request you to do the same after you reach home” Piccolo said “Yes, we will do that”. Krillin said “Thank you for your help. Farewell”. The Z-fighters then transported to their original dimension. When they got out of the space ship, they saw 2 bulmas. One was older than the other. Krillin said “I think the side effects have kicked in. I can see 2 Bulmas”. Goku gasped “You arent the only one”. Trunks said “We still aren’t in our original dimension. Let us go fast before anything bad happens”. The younger Bulma screamed “Hey!! Wait!! You are in the correct dimension. This is me from the future. Trunks brought her here. After you all left. The original Trunks came. He told that he hadnt come here in a long time. So i realised that an impostor took you all. I then asked him to bring me from the future so that we could work on the technology together and that we could rescue you”. The Z-fighters then told them the entire story. Future Bulma said “Me and Goku???? That is a crazy universe” Future Trunks said “You guys had a tough time it seems. Good that you are all well. We should get back mother”. Future Bulma said “Yes, yes. I know you have a date. Let us go. Bye everyone”. Goten said “I guess, somethings dont change”. The future versions left in their time machine. Gohan said “We should get home. Mom and videl must be worried sick”.  Krillin also panicked and said “18 will clobber me”. All of them flew off to their homes to tell the incredible story about the alternate universe. 

Chapter 6: Counterattack

​Goku rushed towards Vegeta. He swung his arm to hit him. Vegeta dodged it and kicked Goku in the back. Goku got back up and again raced towards Vegeta. This time he hit him with a powerful punch. Vegeta transformed into a Super Saiyan. He and Goku then exchanged blows. Both of them got punched and kicked. Vegeta was hitting far harder. Goku also transformed to hi Super Saiyan form. But he was astonished and said “Why cant I release more energy?”. Vegeta saw an opening and took his shot. He replied “You didnt listen did you? They have introduced a power restricting drug into our systems. You and I are now on equal footing finally. Let me show you my prowess”. Vegeta then unleashed a barrage of punches and energy blasts. Goku couldnt defend himself against them all. Finally Goku screamed and released his energy. He then gave Vegeta two devastating blows. Both of them fell to their knees. Vegeta said “What is wrong with you? Why are you running away. Accept it and move on. We have to defeat them else all those innocent people will have died for nothing. Our world is also in peril. The greatest fighters are here” “I get it Vegeta. But I have killed people

Innocent people. It is not something that I can just forget. But yes, I have to move on to more pressing matters. Our world has some good fighters” said Goku. Vegeta said mockingly “Yes sure. We have Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, a pig. Yes our families will be safe”. Goku and Vegeta then had a laugh. “Vegeta, Thank you” said Goku. Vegeta replied “Dont thank me. I want to thank those people. I finally got a chance to beat you. We should get going now. In a few days they will reach home”. Both of them got up and walked away.

On seeing them Frieza said with a tone of care “Begeta, I mean Vegeta what happened? Why are you both hurt?” Vegeta got a little red with embarrassment and said “It is none of your damn business. We just had a brawl”. Trunks said “I am sorry Frieza. My father is just not used to seeing you as a nice person. His whole life he was a soldier for an evil version of you”. Frieza replied “I am sorry to hear that. I am sorry”. Vegeta snapped at Trunks ” Shut up!! Dont go on telling stuff about me. We need to come up with a plan to defeat them” “While you two were male bonding, we came up with a plan” said Piccolo. Vegeta wasn’t pleased and as soon as he was about to blast at him, Gohan interrupted and said “Frieza has come up with a plan. It is the best we have. He knows the saiyans best here”. Vegeta agreed to that. Goku said “Good. I think I have found a way to remove those power limiters. But before that can we have food”. Gohan and Goten smiled and were relieved that their father was back to his original self. Frieza said “Of course. We have some great vegetable and fruit dishes here.” “Wait a minute. Is there no meat?” asked Vegeta. Frieza said “No. We don’t eat meat” Everyone got sad. They loved meat but Goku with a little optimism said “We can try veggies for once. It wont be so bad”. “But before that, heal up” said Piccolo. Both were sent to healing pods for a few hours. When they returned, Goku said “Krillin is fine now. He still has to rest for a few days”. Vegeta said “What plan have you decided to go with?” “Well the plan is… ” and Frieza told them his strategy. Vegeta had a big smile. He said “Now this is why I decided to come here. I will have fun” “Do you know how to increase our powers to their original levels?” asked Trunks. “Well I have but I am not entirely sure. It has to come naturally i think”  said Goku. He then told them what he thought was the possible solution to their problem.

Frieza said “Well, I cant fully say I agree with you but we dont have another choice. I will send a transmission to them. I am going to give them an offer they can’t refuse” “Geez, that last line. You picked it up from a movie? ” asked Goten. Frieza, red with embarrassment, said ” We will use the next few days to train you. I know certain weak spots of them. You could use them to your advantage” “That is a good idea” said Piccolo. “Hopefully our restrictors will end by then” said Trunks. After a few days of training, everyone was ready. Krillin was awake but still wasnt at his full strength. Krillin said “All the best everyone. Beat those bastards, specially that Prillin. Lying to our faces about his wife and unborn child’s death. How care someone be so evil. To use his pregnant wife as a shield against Frieza and then to use it as a blind spot. How could he shoot energy blasts at you, knowing that they will go through her and kill her as well. It is despicable”. “Father, please bring brother back. Tell him I miss him. I made this bracelet specially for him. Please give it to him” said Cooler. “You have a brother?” asked Gohan in amazement. “Yes” replied Cooler. “If I see him, surely I will give it to him” said Frieza as he put the bracelet on his hand. “We have to go now” said Piccolo. Everyone grabbed Frieza’s hand and they transported. They all came to Capsule Corporation. Their counter parts came out and Tarble said “Well you all are early”. Goten said “Yes. Is there a problem?” “No, no none. You will die earlier that is all” said Koten. “We will see about that” said Trunks. “Shall we start the tournament?” asked Kakarotto. “Not here. Somewhere away from civilisation. Probably in the mountains.” said Goku. “Sure. Let us go” said Kami. All of them flew towards a range of mountains and settled at a place. “Let us begin” said Frieza.

Chapter 5: Betrayal

​Goku screamed ” Nooooo!!!  Krillin”. Trunks said ” What is my future self doing? “. There was fear in his voice. Gohan said “What is wrong with you Trunks. I will kill you, if Krillin dies”. Future Trunks replied “Frieza is defeated  and you know everything now so I dont need to put on this charade anymore. I am not Trunks from your universe. THIS is my universe” He said this with an evil grin on his face. Vegeta said “What are you saying, Trunks?”. He replied “First of all, my name isnt Trunks. It is Tarble. I am the son of Kakarotto. I mean who keeps the son’s name after clothes, bullet missed.My mother developed the inter-universe travel machine so that we could escape this wretched world. We could never stop Frieza. But then I came to your universe. I waited and saw who you all were. This was a do good universe. Soon I learnt of the Dragon Balls. I collected them all and made 2 wishes.” Goten said “Impossible. We would have noticed it. The sky becomes dark when you summon Shenron” Tarble replied with irritation “Shut up and listen. I wished to know all about this universe pertaining you all. The second wish was that you all forget that the sky was ever black. Then it was a matter of playing the role of Trunks”. “SOLAR FLARE” screamed Piccolo. The counter parts were blinded. Frieza said “Grab my hand. I will get you all out of here”. The Z-fighters didn’t know what else to do. Goku carried Krillin and grabbed Frieza’s hand. Just as they were about to transport, Kakarotto, still blinded, said “Goku, I have to tell you something before you leave. The food you all ate while coming here, had a special chemical which seals your power the more you use it. You all now will be weak compared to your original selfs. Also you killed so many innocent soldiers”. He laughed and said ” You’re naive and you killed them, the innocent and righteous soldiers. Even now you’re best friend is bleeding and soon will die” Frieza yelled “Shut up. Enough of this. Let us get out of here” All of them were transported to a different facility.

Goku asked Frieza with desperation “Please help my friend”. “Father” yelled another voice from across the hallway. It was Frieza but younger and a little different. “Cooler, take this man immediately to the medical bay. He needs medical attention now”. “Yes father” said cooler and took Krillin away. Frieza said “You, namekian, are very smart. You had a backup plan or something right!” Piccolo said “Let me introduce us all first”. He introduced and then continued “I had my doubts from the very beginning. Future Trunks or Tarble was acting strange. He said it was the first time he will use the machine but he knew the side effects already? He was very eager to help them without even listening to the story properly. He killed many others for sport and not because he had to. He killed others before they could out his facade. Thankfully I have learnt different arts like Solar Flare and Healing. I healed Krillin a little before we transported here”. Frieza said ” I am sorry for whatever is happening to you. I should have been more strong and destroyed them before only. My naivety has cost you all too much. The saiyans destroyed my planet for fun. We were a peaceful race. We were on a quest to spread peace. We discovered their planet. Little did we know that they would use our technology against us. They used our ships and came to our planet. They destroyed it but managed to get their hands on many ships. They would use it to spread darkness in the universe. I and some others were away and so didn’t know what had happened. We returned to our planet to see space dust there. We were in disbelief. We went to their planet to understand why did they do it” Cooler returned and interrupted “Father, he is currently recovering and will require time”. “Thank you so much for your help” said Gohan. Cooler said “No problem. My dad was narrating his story it seems. Please carry on father” ” So, they laughed at us and said it was for fun. They started shooting at us. Some of us perished. The others fled. I was the last. I knew they couldn’t be allowed to live. The universe was at stake. So I destroyed them with my forbidden move. Over years, I had a child. I have kept this a secret and hope you shall too. We are the last of our race. Those saiyans managed to kill everyone from my race. They knew we had the power to beat them. Before that power could be manifested, they killed us.”

Goku was silently sitting in a corner with doubt in his mind. Goten asked “Dad, Is something wrong?”. Goku screamed “I killed innocent people. How was I so blind. I knew killing is wrong but still I did it anyway. Now Krillin is gravely injured. If wouldn’t have been for Piccolo and Frieza, he would have been dead. I need some time alone” Gohan said ” But father..”. Piccolo raised his hand and signalled him to stop saying anything. Goku walked away. Vegeta followed him. Piccolo said “Gohan, you must realise even your father has a pride. He has never killed anyone good just purely for fun. He is in shock. Let him deal with it. We have to leave him alone and come up with a strategy to defeat our counterparts”. Trunks agreed and said “I want to beat my doppelganger right now if I could” ” I have a plan. Listen to it. Maybe it will work” said Frieza.

Vegeta shouted “Wait Kakarot!! Where are you going?” Goku shouted back with anger “Dont you dare use that name now. I need some peace to deal with it”. Vegeta said “Ok Kakarot, run away. It is the only think you can do now”. Goku got angry. He turned around and flew towards him to fight. Vegeta smirked and said ” That is more like it. Bring it on”. 
Next Chapter “Counterattack”

Chapter 2: Doppelgangers

As they got nearer. They saw them. They looked in amazement. It was Goku but how can that be. Goku was here with the others. But there were some distinct differences between them. This new Goku looked more rugged and didn’t seem to joyful. Along with were Vegeta, Piccolo, Gohan, Goten and another guy with blonde hair. The parallel universe Vegeta seemed like a scaredy cat. He didn’t seem as fierce as Vegeta. He didn’t seem interested in the fight. Rather there were expressions of fear at times. Piccolo looked the same except he was blue in colour rather than green. Gohan and Goten seemed just like their father, rugged. They were stoic. The blonde hair guy seemed oddly familiar. It was Krillin!! He was nothing like Krillin. He seemed brave and immensely confident. Though the blonde hair made him look like buffoon. The parallel versions too were in shock. Suddenly their focus was on these new comers. The other Goku screamed “What is this magic?”. Other Goten said ” What has Frieza done this time?” The Z fighters were now convinced this was an alternate universe. They could see themselves and Frieza somehow was alive. Piccolo said “He cloned us!!!! After he took our cells and merged them together to form that wretched thing, he now cloned us completely”. Krillin said “They dont seem like perfect clones. If anything they seem inferior, my clone is a bald guy” he said laughingly. Vegeta asked “What should we do then?” Goku said “Kill them now!!” All of them proceeded. The Z fighters put up their guards. Then Future Trunks screaming “Stop this now. We aren’t clones made by Frieza. Right now you are under attack by him and I know how dangerous he is. We are here to help you” The parallel versions stopped and quickly said “Fine, help us then. If we see you do anything suspicious or even a hint of betrayal. You all will be slaughtered” said Parallel Goku.

Now everyone’s focus was on the large army of aliens. Everyone flied towards them. The aliens started firing energy blasts. In retaliation, so did everyone else. The aliens were no match for this team. The difference in power levels was too big. But what they lacked in quality, they tried overcoming with quantity. The parallel versions fought with ferocity the likes of which they hadnt known. Blasting off enemies. Soon the Z fighters realised their parallel versions were strong and very precise. Each attack by them was fatal. The parallel versions were taken aback by the power and aggression Vegeta had. Something they hadnt seen with theirs. Suddenly the aliens seemed started reducing their attacks. They realised how futile it was to attack them. Not only they were weaker but also now there were 2 of their enemies. Suddenly all of them felt this large power level. A blue coloured alien appeared with a very high power level. It even rivalled those of the Z fighters. This alien was Cell!!  He was blue in colour and had a very high power level. “So you finally appear, Cell” said Gohan. “Today was supposed to be the day, you saiyans got exterminated from this universe. But my army couldn’t do it” said Cell. He then glanced at the Z fighters. He was stunned “How is it there are two of you? You cloned yourself with the help of that woman didn’t you” said Cell. “No we haven’t, we thought this was your doing. But now it is clear, it wasn’t. They are our allies and will help us defeat you” said Piccolo. Cell screamed “If you feel so, come on. Let me show you the power of the perfect being. But first I will kill this Begeta. He has betrayed my creator. After all he has done for you, you betray him. To top it all, you join forces with the very people who have hurt him the most. You will not be spared by me evenif he spares you” Cell raced towards Begeta. But Vegeta came there first and punched him. Cell moved back a little and said “That was all?” “Well this brings back memories” he said with a hint of nervousness. “I will show power” said Vegeta as he transformed into a Super Saiyan 2. Cell was nervous now. Vegeta’s power had increased dramatically. Vegeta announced “No one interfere. If anyone does, he will not be spared”. He and Cell then began to brawl. Each punch sending out air pressure waves. Each clash shaking the earth. It was an even fight. But Cell wasnt getting weaker. He was getting stronger but increase wasnt that big. Soon Vegeta realised he has to finish it in a single blow else Cell will become much more stronger than them. He decided to prepare for his Final Flash attack. Over years of practice had allowed him to unleash it at a moments notice. He screamed “Final Flash”  and there was a blinding light and Cell vanished in it. After the light disappeared, Cell was still there. But he had no limbs. He was bleeding. “How does that feel, Cell? Do you realise the difference in our powers. Evenif you somehow manage to grow stronger, I still have a more powerful transformation. Give up and die but before that tell us where is Frieza. I want to kill that alien for the atrocities he has done.” said Vegas with pride. Cell said in shock “What atrocities are you talking about? What do you know of this world” “He has killed all the saiyans I am guessing except few which he couldn’t” said Vegeta. “Well yes, he did explode their planet. But do you know why!? I will tell you” he screamed. The next second he was cut in two pieces and then 4 and then so on and he was blasted away by Future Trunks. He screamed “What are you doing father? You were playing right into his hands. He was buying time to regenerate himself and then kill you. How have you become so sloppy” 

Vegeta said with anger “I knew that. What do you think I am a moron?” Though deep inside Vegeta knew he would have been a goner if Cell had regenerated then and that Trunks saved his life. The other aliens who remained to see this, were in shock. One of their strongest fighters had died. There was nothing left of him. They decided to flee away but the parallel versions did not let it happen. They shot their strongest energy beams and killing them all. Krillin was just shocked by how strong his parallel version is. How he was better than him in every way, he even had golden hair. Goku protested “That wasn’t necessary. You didn’t have to kill them.” The parallel version said with a ferocity “If you dont tell us who you are, you will be next”. Future Trunks along with the Z fighters explained that they were from a parallel universe. Then Vegeta asked “What is your story? Why am I such a wimp here and is his name Begeta!? I sure hope Cell was making fun of the name”
