Haiku Heights Challenge.. Day 06 Promp: Kiss..
Two contrasting takes, today..
Infant opens eyes
Sick mother craves to kiss, holds
Temptation; Oh, God!
Carrying on with the tale.. as long as I can..
Elephant wants ant
To kiss him, she starts climbing
Gets tired, sleeps in ear..
By RS : )
Beautiful sensitivity in the first haiku and some quirky fun in the second!ReplyDelete
Cool! I'll second what Gemma said.ReplyDelete
I agree with Gemma and Andy; but, Ramesh, what I always enjoy most are your funny and whimsical pieces! They are so charming.ReplyDelete
There may be reasons why the infant could not be kissed. A pity! The elephant is too hazardous a journey to climb? Beautiful verses!ReplyDelete
That first one broke my heart!ReplyDelete
love the second one, understand the first one, so hard when that happensReplyDelete
The Elephant's Ant -- the best Haiku ever! Here's the untold story:ReplyDelete
Ant wants Elephant
to kiss her, he starts looking
and can't find her lips
:) :) the love of a mother beyond the depth of any ocean..ReplyDelete

First one sad and poignant.
Second one made me smile - delivering a kiss can sometimes be hard work.
