Her Joyous Infinite World...


First a Haiku..

Happier thoughts;
stars illuminate her
inner skies


Her Joyous Infinite World...

On the dark wall
in front of her
she draws a happy picture
of her own smile
and gives it a title
her  eyes can't see
yet her face shows me
glimpses of her
joyous infinite world..


I Live...

APED Phrase: I Live

Haiku Horizons: Thorn

I Live

thorns bite her
as she plucks a rose;
of her love surrounds,
I live


Sun rise
gifts me another day;
I live
by my promise of
being 'alive'
in every moment
who wants to walk
like a corpse..

That Colourful Party At Night...(APED Challenge)


Based on a cascade of haiku I wrote a couple of years ago....

That Colourful Party At Night...

Empty glasses
strewn around
with frayed table clothes
here and there
she sleeps on the chair
doorbell rings not.
Morning arrives..
Lo! The mirror
fails to remember
that colourful party at night.. (33)

Heal the World..

APED Prompt # 25 Phrase :

Heal the World..

No smile,
that little one
on the side of the road
he didn't have a smile;
she gave him one
and walked on
once back home
she watered plants..

Light Drizzle..... Haiku..

Haiku Horizon Prompt:   Tears

Shared with Haiku My Heart..

Her tears fall
on the petal of a rose;
light drizzle

Extends to a poem for Leo's APED Prompt 22: Light

Her tears fall
on the petal of a rose
light drizzle
reluctant umbrella
opens not
the drops of rain
shine on her face
she looks up, knowing
somewhere behind
the dark clouds
moon shines amid stars;
she smiles and throws the dead rose

A repainted past;

Haiku Horizons..  Prompt: Trust..

Shared with June 14th with Leo's APED


Tiny streams
trickle down her face;

A curved line like a broken bangle - APED Quoted Prompt 2..


Leo's APED  Quoted Prompt # 2

Or A Curved Line Like A Broken Bangle

Let my face reflect
pain or joy or wonderment
my friend takes it all
without changing expression;
Yes, Moon  shines & smiles
all the time..
I hold a star studded night sky
in my gleaming eyes
where else could I keep safe
the friendship gift of the Moon
Just one friend enough for me
for I can share sitting
in solitude, looking up
without any fear of
getting judged..
Our friendship is beyond
questions and answers
I too never judge
on the declining face of
Moon day after day
Be it a full Moon
or a curved line like a broken bangle
I accept every face of Moon
including its absence occasionally
Yes, I learnt all this by copying
my friend's behaviour..

She Refuses to Share Her Tears..


Leo's  Prompt 10 - Wordle..

She Refuses to Share Her Tears..

She ferries
wicked thoughts
from the entrance
of her mind
that is painted in green
directly to the exit;

She has been searching
for those forgotten
notes she would scribble
in her note-books whispering
like rhymes in those days of
gay abundance

she refuses to share
her tears  which for her
are the blessings flowing
from the highest points
of her inner-space..

With Rainbow In Her Eyes...


Leo's APED Prompt 6 Week-end Wordle  ...

With Rainbow In Her Eyes...

Breeze carries with it
the music of the rain as the raindrops
softly hit her face
Immersed in the magic
she didn't even notice
jumping  over a
small waist-high bush
She had forgotten to
unfold and put-on her raincoat
Her adolescent mind thought:
"Will I have the same freedom
after I become someone's bride"..
She smiled and let it go
Why think of  something
so far ahead in time...
Still in school
her  life had just begun..
She looks up in the skies
with rainbow in her  eyes....

APED Prompt 5 - Moon Lit Water Shines..a Poem..


Image Source: Moonlit Landscape with Bridge by Aert van der Neer (via Wikimedia Commons)

Leo's APED Prompt 5 


Moon-lit water shines;
she sees herself on the bridge
having pushed a paper-boat
loaded with her dreams
slowly sailing 
towards a brighter morning
when she would see the 
reflection of a rising Sun...

She wonders 
if  her happy thoughts
would  create some ripples 
in the still morning waters..
No, she wouldn't be able
to witness the spectacle 
'cos she hopes to have crossed
the bridge by then..

For now the moon shines
in all its glory and the 
paper-boat sails ahead as 
the sound of wind-chime
brings her out of reverie
she looks around 
the darkness
Mind can't differentiate.

She did stand on that bridge.
The paper-boat she had created
and left on her side
had disappeared..
Ah, that's when the moon 
knocked on her window glass
and she let the moon-beam
offer gleam to her dreams... 

RS :)

Leo's APED Pompt 4: 
"Everything you can imagine is real"  - Pablo Picasso

Shared with Haiku My Heart..

She draws frozen Moon
in the centre of the Sun;

a cool trick to bear the heat
of her reality...

Three Haiku : Leo's APED

Here's for Leo's  APED 3 - Wordle..

Earth takes another 
round around sun with elan;

Ah, Summer fun;
child in her desires 
dark chocolate 


She Weaves Happiness..

Leo's APED Prompt : 2 
Through Thick and Thin..

She Weaves Happiness..

She weaves happiness 
as it passes through thick and thin;
twisted thread of life


Twisted thread of life
keeps passing through thick and thin;
she weaves happiness

Moon Kept Glowing...


Well my inspiration Vinay (Leo) is back..and I will have my chance to write haiku or poems.. everyday.. Wow!!!  

Moon Kept Glowing

It was getting 
a little darker as I 
no more could hear 
the sound of my footsteps
I walked on 
looking down,
on the ground
and in between I would
glance at the little angels
running and 
jumping around
as, full of jest, their moms 
followed them..
And then I looked up
the Moon smiled
I smiled too
we both knew the truth
so it felt better
Moon kept glowing
I kept walking.
Till I got tired
when I returned home.

A Haiku

Monstrous hot winds
hit me direct on the face;
I fall sick, simple


A Bird Flies Over.....Haiku

Haiku Horizons - Pond
shared with Rebecca's Haiku My Heart..

I release
my paper boat in the pond;
no movement


No movement;
back at me stares my dark


I push the water
with my hand as boat trembles;
pond changes colour


Pond changes colour;
betraying nightly slilence
a bird flies over...
