Happily I breathe..


Written for OSI Prompt : Wheat...  Haiku Heights :  Breathe

A haiku...that stems from my heart...

Aroma of raw wheat
From the puffed-up ‘Roti’
Happily I breathe..

We hail from Punjab, so my wife, when she came to know about this prompt expressed spontaneously...

"What will we eat
If there were no Wheat"
And a  surprised me
Exclaimed, "How sweet!"

  7. Your wife is a poet
    and didn't know it.

    In the States we have a little ditty that goes:

    "I'm a poet
    and don't know it.
    But my feet show it
    they're Longfellows"

    ..
