I looked up in the sky and saw this:

Curvy Moon

Quiet Transition..

Quiet Transition..

Mango ripens

Quiet transition;
a mild crack appears

a little one grabs it;

Gifts of Poverty..

Written for Haiku Heights

Prompt: Endurance

When I thought of writing haiku for this
prompt, only two pictures came to mind..
Earth rotating around the Sun and
a mother breaking stones
on the side of a road with her little children playing...
I don't know whether their
father was around or not...that's one
assumption I made...that he wasn't there...picture
has stayed with me for many years..and here
I draw it in words..

Gifts of Poverty..

Ah, she breaks stones
under the scorching Sun;
naughty children

Naughty children
 gift her happy smiles each night;
Gifts of poverty

Gifts of poverty
held with a stealy resolve;
a mother endures

A mother endures
life each day just for a day;
Ah, she breaks stones..

RS :)

Well, I don't know how  but I did bring smiles in this sad haiku too.. God bless!!

I Walk Into Hope...

Written for
Rebecca's Haiku My Heart..

I Walk Into Hope..

Afternoon Sun
looks itself in the water;
A cool reflection..

A Cool reflection
of a happier life ahead
I walk into hope

I walk into hope;
God's design to realign
planets in my life..

Planets in my life;
I am happy that a Sun
shines in my heart too

Shines in my heart too
in myriad stages of life;
Afternoon sun..

Beautiful Rose
Diligently nurtured
By an amateur,
With love and passion
Just for the sake of it
For sheer happiness
Would a professional
Have given the Rose
A better life...
I am happy to find it
Smiling heartily
for the butterfly is
Innocently unaware
and doesn't want to know too...

MY 500TH POST...


Hello friend,
Now that you are here, please stop 
for a couple of minutes to read
these words flowing from my heart
without any preface or a prologue
for I think that's the way the
thoughts emerge ...


It has been a wonderful journey of 854 days...till today............

I had never thought of reaching here when I started
extremely reluctantly...but then I am here and the words
say it all.... without mentioning them,  I express my special
gratitude to some discerning minds whom I met through
One Single Impression and then Haiku Heights and
Haiku My Heart and 3WW and Jingle Poetry and
Bluebell Books and Challenge at Few Miles and some more... and 
those discerning minds know who they are and how
they are connected...all because of this wonderful space...

I salute this space which honours written word..
If you ask me what I  have received..well a need stands fulfilled
- the need to be understood...
a need which is intense for a thinking mind...
 I am glad that I was gifted with one
by God and that I found many who appear to be getting
what I wanted to say...

As all my celebratory posts in the past have been written 
for One Single Impression, I write this too for the 
Sunday Prompt: Miracle...   And I am taking the liberty to share
Thanks to Geraldine of Take a Happy Break for this week's prompt.

this post with all others named above on the days during the week
ahead... hope it will be accepted... I say what I have to through
my own style of creating chain of haiku... ( I am  happy to see some
trying this style successfully.. I remember  a fabulous
blogger calling them Dancing Verses)

Five Hundredth Post, this!!!

Five hundredth post, this!
shine together in my words
tears of joy and pain

Tears of joy and pain;
filled with your love and support,
I stand overwhelmed…

I stand overwhelmed
amidst these frozen moments;
both sun and moon shine

Both sun and moon shine
as earth takes another turn
I keep my balance..

I keep my balance
holding on to a moonbeam;
a small miracle, that!!

A small miracle that
words keep raining from skies
they grow on trees too

they grow on trees too
and many stem from your smiles
morning’s happy gifts

Morning's happy gifts
I find some hidden around
in fragrant flowers

In fragrant flowers;
butterflies too bring along
few fluttering words

Few fluttering words
I weave them all together
in haiku and poems

In haiku and poems
in each word , each sentence
I live happily…

I live happily;
blue and green meet quietly in
this beautiful space

This beautiful space
home for all my unbaked dreams;
I meet all of you ..

I meet all of you …
as my heart shouts out loud
 hey, thank you, thank God!!

RS :)

A Whole Sea in Glass!!

Attending a few parties as I observed people,
I remebered having these lines taking birth..
so decided to share as my second post for Haiku Heights..

It's my 499th Post..friends.. don't forget to bless tomorrow...
I shall share 500th with all my favourites...
hope it would be OK...

Tinge of bluish green;
 my friend confidently holds
a whole sea in glass... 


My Heart Holds Itself..

Written for Haiku Heights..

my heart holds itself..

My heart holds itself;
spirit blooms like a flower
bathed in sunshine..

Rose Blooms..

Written for Rebecca's Haiku My Heart..

oh, no, not a chain of haiku.. had been going through titles of different posts
in last few months and found some haiku hidden....

Rose blooms;
I taste  nature in
my breath


Ah, something melts
deep inside me somewhere;
I have a soul..


Silent sunbeams;
morning quietly creates
its own pictures..


Colours, colours!
dreams spilling from
her lovely eyes..

RS :)

"I Remain the Boss!"

I had put a long poem narrating an incident..but chose to remove the post as having received the honour of being awarded

I decided to rewrite a series of Haiku
my first blogging community
to respect all the blogger friends and
visitors who voted for me..
and thanks to SiS of Few Miles..

Prompt: Confirmation
Thanks to Tarang for the prompt

"I Remain the Boss!"

Mother Earth roars;
nature confirms her status,
" I remain the Boss"..

"I remain the Boss",
assserts the man too as proud;
intellect smiles..

Intellect smiles
and moves ahead to rebuild;
world stays in slumber

World stays in slumber;
nature conspires to reconfirm
her power over man

Her power over man
is an indisputable truth;
egoistic man

Egoistic man
is slowly learning soul's ways;
nature's last resort..

Lanes of My Childhood..

Written for Haiku Heights Prompt: Childhood..
Also shared with Haiku My Heart..
Lanes of My Childhood..

 Ah, fragments of some
  mischievous moments still shine;
lanes of my childhood


Lanes of my childhood;
engraved on the walls are
stories of first crush..


I Try Matching the Steps..

It's Friday.... and I write here for
Rebecca's Haiku My Heart..

I Try Matching the Steps..

A pale shadow
of  sun smiles vainly;
layer of clouds..

  layer of clouds;
 sunflowers reflect  

quietly vanishes;
withering clouds..

 withering clouds;
sun peeps through and lo,
sunflowers dance..

Sunflowers dance;
ecstatic, I try
matching the steps..

Matching the steps
with nature's cool rhythm;
beautiful life

Whenever I Want to Think Aloud..

Written for 3WW

Deviant; adjective: Departing from usual or accepted standards, esp. in social or sexual behavior; noun: a deviant person or thing.

Minuscule; adjective: Extremely small, tiny.
Trivial; adjective: Of little value or importance; (of a person) concerned only with trifling or unimportant things

Whenever I Want to Think Aloud..

  Oh, just because
  I don't bother about
  all that is trivial -
  like your not appreciating
  my new shirt or
  for that matter not
  commenting on my
  new hairstyle
  and your not letting me
  complete a sentence -
  if you want then
  you can label me 'deviant'
  No, even that won't
  be able to make a
  minuscule of a difference...
  And all that I have
  written above is not true
  because your opinion
  about me still matters
  but I want to reach a state
  to become, the kind
  I have thought aloud here..
  Do you know whenever I want
  to think aloud, I write...


  Inspired by haiku by MMT...I add a series..for 3WW..

 Shines for the new
 planet in the galaxy;
 deviant Moon

 Deviant Moon
 impressed and lost by
 trivial hints

Trivial hints
so what if it is just a
minuscule  dot...
