A Withering Rose...Haiku

Written for Haiku Horizons
Prompt: Decline

A Withering Rose..

Strands of her hair sway
as winds decline to hold back;
a withering rose


A withering rose
loses its layers quietly;
declining hair-line


Declining hair-line;
she tries in vain to hold rough
winds passing his way..


Winds passing his way
whisper true secrets of life;
love just lets it be..

Her Glass Is Empty - Friday Haiku

Friday's Haiku 

for  Rebecca's Haiku My Heart

A faint splash of white
against the vastness of blue;
her glass is empty


Her glass is empty;
A thunder storm brews 
in far away lands 

In far away lands
clouds of dreams carry hope;
a half  broken Moon

A half broken Moon
and stars sing a lullaby ;
her glass is half full

Her glass is half full;
against the vastness of  blue
a splash of dark grey

I Will Take A Walk Alone.. 3WW

What a cathartic experience
As I gather all the negative emotions
In a plastic bag
And tie them up tightly
I want to throw them far away
in the barren lands
But it could be risky
If the plastic gets damaged
And those dark emotions
Get wings once again
Won’t my efforts to walk
confidently with my face lit up
with happy thoughts
Land in jeopardy
Well, I think instead of putting
Them all in a plastic bag
I will let them fly with the winds
Perhaps the comfort of
Melding with clouds and trees
and listening to birds on the way
Will soothe them, I think, for now 
I will take a walk alone..

A Love Story ... Haiku

Written for Haiku Horizons
Prompt: Comfort..

Shared with Haiku My Heart..

A Love Story in a Chain of Haiku...

A real hard pillow ;
he plucks a piece of cloud for 
her dreamy comfort


Winds arrest him for 
celestial theft of a cloud;
she sleeps in comfort


She sleeps in comfort;
he smiles in the photo 
kept on her bedside ..

Her Open Dry Palms.. Haiku..

 Friday's Haiku

For Rebecca's 
Haiku My Heart

Clouds gather, chit-chat
and then go away with winds;
her open dry palms


Her open dry palms;
colourful paper boats 
flutter under fan..


She smiles in her sleep;
raindrops, moonbeams together
hit her window pane..

When 'Sweet' Turns Sour..

Connive, Intrigue, Vehement

When Sweet Turns Sour..

My very kind heart
connives with my calculative mind..
who then instructs my hands
to  pick up that
little piece of sweet
with none watching..
Yet, it was intriguing
for me to find it so openly
kept within my reach
That’s when I heard
her footsteps behind me
As a shrill warning
echoed in the room
I vehemently denied 
with that piece of sweet stuck
in my open mouth..
Happens, when in early fifties
sweet turns sour for you..

Strong Summer Winds - Haiku

Haiku My Heart

Her disheveled
long hair cover her face;
strong summer winds..


Strong summer winds;
droppings of a happy crow
make him look up..

His Mirror Shrugs..... 3WW

    Crisis, Gripe, Stall

His Mirror Shrugs..

Stall all the wisdom around,
gripe about the crisis
and thrive on deception -
his chosen way of life..
and can't hold so I ask  
"Will ever a rose bloom in his heart.."
His mirror shrugs..
doesn't say a thing to me..
I keep quiet and go to sleep
because what else can the
poor conscience do...

Blue Plays Hide & Seek.. Haiku

Rebecca's Haiku My Heart

Happy joyous clouds
getting ready for the fun;
blue plays hide and seek


Couldn't ignore Dear  friend Judith's comment
and have chosen to remove the 2nd 'stanza'...and rewrite it here..

blue plays hide and seek;
she spreads her wings to play with 
happy joyous clouds

When Fine, She Retreats.. Haiku...

Haiku for Haiku Horizons
Promt : Retreat..

He listens to her
woes, misdeeds and sufferings;
when fine, she retreats 


I choose to retreat,
keeping distance from dustbin;
my garbage smells bad


My garbage smells bad;
Thank God, the garbageman
does not retreat ..


Don't retreat without
sharing your candid thought;
bless me visitor
