Smiles Grow on Stones

Entry for Haiku Heights prompt: Blemish

Scars on Moon's face
Nature's blemish turns a boon
Saves from ill will...

For One Single Impression prompt: Lonely
Thanks to Harshadji for a very thoughtful prompt.. it makes one contemplate a lot.. here's my humble attempt , a cluster of haikus....

Smiles Grow on Stones

Storm kills flowers; Sad
Butterfly dreams of new; and
Doesn’t feel lonely

Far deep in the sky
A lonely star fades away;
Many more appear

Happy Moon shines
Amidst stars; sends smiles to
Lonely Earth

A step forward
Heart lights on the palm
Loneliness vanishes

Friendship with
Loneliness; books on shelf
Tap feet and sing

Lonely hearts
Beam with delight; a handshake
Tells all with feel

Millions of fireflies
Descend on dark lonely lane
Smiles grow on stones


  1. Pyaara Dost,
    Good Morning!
    Beautiful lines and so touching!Just waiting for the words that touch the heart,the hands that bring the warm touch and the smile that soothes the heart.
    I had put before too for your earlier posts but they got deleted.I don't know what is the problem.
    I think,you love the star studded sky with Moon a lot...............
    It's a pleasure reading your posts.

  2. after a sad episode, comes a happy, hopeful moment!

    i like the thoughts and spirit of your haikus...;-) never-ending positivity, it's like...'after the storms comes a bright day'!

    or...'behind the clouds, the sun is still shining'...:-)

    stars, moon, fireflies, flowers, friendship, they all make us a happy lot! loneliness seem to vanish like magic!
