Haiku- a valley

the solo trekker

scales the snowy mountain peak;

valley left behind

Everyone is born different

Born different
Some are born to love;
Some are born for passion.

He might love the feel of breeze;
She creates a cyclone.
While some people live their lives,
Others need to feel alive.

Not everyone runs the same race,
Not even for the same reason.
Some covet the shiny trophy;
Others like the roadside scene.

While some aim for lofty goals,
Some just want the thrill of chase.
Not all wish to settle down,
Some are born to run free.

each petal unfurls

hope blooms in the depths of heart

as the flowers smile

gentle evening breeze

blows dry leaves off the ground…

deep distinct palm lines

covered with rough calluses—

*Senryu is a human haiku. Haiku is a Japanese poetry, which traditionally  follows a pattern of 5-7-5 syllables in three lines. While Haiku deals with nature, Senryu portrays human characters and emotions.

Honest criticism is always welcome. 😀

Haiku

Haiku --waves

euphoric dancing

waves play tag with the seashore—

the rhythm of being

After writing poems during my school years, I had totally given up poetry. So, few of you might be wondering about my sudden change of heart. It’s the summer. The heat is becoming unbearable. And it’s just April. I don’t even want to think of May.

I’ve heard that attempting something you’ve never done before can cheer you up. So, here’s my first Haiku. It’s on my favourite topic—the sea. I’ll be happy if you offered honest criticism. Be blunt; you won’t offend me easily. 🙂
