Will She Be Herself?

September 30, 2012

Prompt: Free
( Thank God, it's free)

Will She Be Herself?

She is a daughter
a sister, a wife , a mother;
will she be herself

Will she be herself
she has often wondered;
silent skies listen

Silent skies listen
ah, whenever she looks up;
no, free answers fall

No free answers fall;
she continues to strive, ah
'She' of my haiku…


My ode to women culminates with the prompt
from Rachana..whose name translates into 'Creation'
Hope Creation finds my final Ode to 'She'..worthy..



  1. Lovely ode to women ... wonderful !!!

  2. Ramesh--some similar thoughts floated through my mind today regarding the concept of "free." I decided I could in no way do the word justice in a haiku--but you did! Well done.

  3. Lovely cascading lines ~ I have not written everyday but I did on the last day ~ Thanks for all your visits in my blog ~

  4. "Silent skies listen" my favorite line. Lovely creative cascade to a lovely Creation.

  5. A lovely cascading haiku to end the month. I appreciate the line "no free answers fall" Very well done as always.
