Raindrops: Set of Three Haikus(photo by author)

Raindrops on leaves drip,
A transient impermanence,
Expectant earth waits.
**

Raindrops on leaves.


Tomorrow leaves fall,
Moist earth embraces the dead,
Rejuvenation.

Cherish the beauty,
Short life,lifelong memory,
In death, renewal.


I haven’t posted much on my blog for some time now. After a long forty day road trip of 9425 miles across USA, I was most probably getting lethargic. Few weeks back I started to write a long short story in my mother tongue Axomiya (Assamese) on my Facebook wall. Well, to make a long story short, after twenty eight episodes and nearly twenty seven thousand words, I haven’t yet seen the light at the end of the tunnel and falling very far behind. To be precise, still traveling hundred and eighty years in the past. I have still a long time to catch up to the present. I took the photograph of raindrops on rose leaves yesterday morning and as I was looking at the photo today, and it’s a gorgeous sunny day today, thoughts that came to my mind were transcribed by my fingers to a set of haikus. Obviously the rust shows.

Saturday Serene: Incredulous Life: Set of Haikus

Incredulous life

Raindrops soaked by hungry earth

Barren lies the pond

*******

Wise old oak tree stands

Dark clouds cover blazing sun

Old wisdom wasted

*******

Hear raindrops falling

Stream rushing to meet river

Exuberant life

*******

Wildflowers in bloom

Gently blows the evening breeze

Serene night beckons

*******

Behold the silence

Deep beneath boiling magma

Unsuspecting world

 

Friday Freebies: Do You Hear: Set of Haikus

Gurgling waterfalls

Silent raindrops washed away

Distant sea calling

*************

Birds chirping in joy

Happy melodies floating

Spring is in the air

************

Distant bells ringing

Happily grazes the sheep

Wolves guarding the herd

*********

Call to the faithful

Call to arms to spread hatred

Smell of blood in air

*********

Bombs exploding loud

Armageddon beckoning

As Nero fiddles

*********

Rainbow melodies

Merging in monochrome white

A song beautiful

********

Dear God in heaven

Never one better than earth

Peace bell ringing loud
