3WW : A Haiku and a poem

Fruit Awaits..

A nudge by desire
Gives springs to his gait
Fruits ripen..


Dreams Haven't Yet Ripened..

A little nudge by desire
Adds springs to his gait
But dreams hanging from skies
Haven’t yet ripened
Stars watch and feel pity
But he’s on his way, happy
If only Moon could talk
But can’t, under oath
Of a starry night
Breeze knows the truth
And whisper’s in his ears
But he doesn’t understand
Language of nature
Hasn’t ever got in touch
With fresh mornings
Always lives with
His darkened truths
Wrapped in desires
Missing many a message
For a better life
May God let Sun
Shine on him
And shadow reveal
His real self , who in turn
Might help him
Learn to recognize
His own dreams, giving him
Patience to wait
Till they get ripened,

Ah, if only it happens
And we all could learn to wait..


  1. Pyaara Dost,
    Good Evening!
    Lovely lines.....Shall I help him to know the language of nature?I know how to communicate very easily...Many dreams fall off before getting ripened;still we dream;It's life.
    Wishing you a dreamy night,

  3. Your Haiku is very seductive, not sure if that was your intent but nonetheless it is well written and lends itself just enough to ignite one's imagination. And oh, I can so relate to your poem! The imagery is astounding, great creative use of the prompt.
