He Creates A Hole In the Sky....

Written for Haiku Horizons Prompt: Ground
Shared with Rebecca's Haiku My Heart...

He Creates A Hole In the Sky....

He flutters his wings
for the flight beyond skies;
firm feet on the ground

Firm feet on the ground;
he creates a hole in the sky
with a sharp resolve

With a sharp resolve
he lands in a starry maze;
a slippery ground

A slippery ground
up there confounds him;
he flutters his wings

He flutters his wings
for flying back to ground;
she had always known..

A Tastier Life..

Haiku Horizons.. Pepper
Also shared with Haiku My Heart..

Ah, she always sprays
each moment with some pepper;
a tastier life

A tastier life;
I don't need a peppermint 
in my pocket

No Complaints.. a Haiku...

Written for Haiku Horizons..

No complaints on salt;
she loves him a lot more
than his cooking

A Joyous, Brighter, Happier Diwali for Her..

Written for Rebecca's  Haiku My Heart..

She walks through the
remains of a sparkling night;
ah, festivities 

Ah, festivities;
ashen faced morning finds
piles of burnt crackers

Piles of burnt crackers;
she hears the crackling of his
magical laughter

Magical laughter;
she carries his image in 
her ignited heart

Her ignited heart;
a joyous, brighter, happier  
Diwali for her..

जब साँझ ढले Gangs of Mango Trees..

Written for Haiku Horizon Prompt: Steam..
Shared with Haiku My Heart/..

Gangs of Mango Trees

She balances his
steaming food box on her head;
hot sun-filled fields


Hot sun-filled fields;
steamy gossips and happier
gangs of  mango trees


Gangs of mango trees;
night is still with no more steam
in the chilled air..


Dear Blogger friend, You will honour me by reading the below mentioned  too,,,, 

In celebration of Deewali, the festival of lights, Here's a Hindi Poem, first time  on this Blog.. dedicated to my wife.. who has supported me through thick and thin..

For my non-Hindi Speaking friends let me share the essence.. 

In the poem here, I talk about the need for a husband and wife to walk together hand in hand in the evening of life. confidently without fear having full trust in God.. I pray to them to spend time enjoying the gifts of nature, resting under the trees, listening to songs of birds, talking to stars.. living a full life..    The poem is my way of saying thanks to my dear wife.. We have had a lovely time together. She has supported me all the way through thick 'n' thin for all the 33 years.. This is my way to say thanks to her.. READ ON but before that...


जब साँझ ढले...

जब साँझ ढले
तब साथ चलें...

हाथों में हाथ
बातों का साथ
हो कठिन डगर
यूँ ही चलें मगर
न रुके कभी
न थमें कभी
जब दम लगे
सांस काम लगे
सयम न हारें
कुछ पल गुजारें
इक पेड़ तले
इक पेड़ तले

जब साँझ ढले
तब साथ चलें....

पाँव में छाले
मरहम लगा लें
कभी डगमगाएं
कभी लडख़ड़ायें
चाहे तूफ़ान
करे परेशान
हिम्मत न टूटे
साथ न छूटे
अपना खुदा
न हो जुदा
हर बला टले
हर बला टले
जब साँझ ढले
तब साथ चलें

धूप जलाये
पर रोक न पाय
ठडीं हवा
दे हौसला
पेड़ भी सारे
हमें निहारें
पक्षी गायें
दिल को भाएं
सुनेगी रातें
सितारों से बातें
चाहे चाँद जले
चाहे चाँद जले

जब साँझ ढले
तब साथ चलें .....
