- Haiku X 16 Kissing In The Rain -

                            Silver shiny, careful summer droplets
                    Caresses and cool their naked sunburned bodies
                                 He kissed away all the drops

                                     Tenderness in his kiss
                         The rainbow, sunshine, thunder and rain
                                   Covered her with his kiss

A Change of Season - A Haiku

Golden leaves flutter...
Flapping black wings fill the sky....
And summer is gone....

Categories: god, grave, water, wedding,


Brewed tea
Wife and myself
Nothing between us
He was metamorphosed 
Into a frog
When his wife had left him
I needed
A lonely woman
Thousand years back
She shivered
In yellow sun
Struck by her coyness
God travels
With three suitcases
One for me
I kissed
Her frostiness 
And my lips turned icebergs
The bed
Gets embarrassed
At our nakedness
Her hands
Stopped me
To pick evenings
We two rested
In a cave of Kundalini
Behind the waterfall
The alien woman 
Travelled six moons
To deliver her baby in a burial ground 
An eagle swoops
On a field –mouse
Tables of wedding
The woman kissed me
I felt her hollow ribs
As if in a spring dream
The woman’s hair
Struck by a gale
Made waterfalls
My wife locked
Me one fine evening
In my neighbour’s hole
The rats are away
When mice take in
My wife’s clammy face
The summer rain
In exasperation
Took wings to raid the moon
Lolo my wife
Her green sleek steps
Thundered an innocent fly
In the dead of night
God made two wives
One for me one for my neighbour
My neighbour’s wife
Delivered a child
When I was asleep
The woman said goodbye
And I took a fish for dinner
I mistook it for my wife
My wife is a canvas
Where I paint
My forebodings
A painter’s apprentice
In sheer foolishness
daubed in red my wife’s rear-view
A squirrel saw my wife
And in haste
Lost her guava 
I was caught in neighbour’s bedroom
By my wife last summer
I lost my glasses
A wolf entered the graveyard 
And annoyed my wife
Sarah my wife
Dizzy commuters
Sarah wed me
And in brief forgetfulness
Greeted my neighbour
A tiger ate Sarah my wife
It happened by accident
The tiger knows
Morning bell
Wake up call
I want to sleep
Pola my pet fly
Fouled things up
She ate my wife’s breakfast
My dog Pintu
I set him free on my wife’s posterior
Eons ago a butterfly
Gave birth to my wife
Now, a caterpillar 
A hard slap
Hurricane Sarah will win 
You have gathered enough winters 
Woman sighs
Leave one for me
The woman flapped her wings
To clouded mountaintops
Silky as white

Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus

Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus

Trees with sprouting limbs
bathed by spring's April showers
their lacy green robes

Trees with dense full limbs
swayed by warm summer breezes
their green velvet capes

Trees with brilliant limbs
whirled by the cool autumn winds
their burnished gold gowns

Trees with cold bare limbs
frozen by winter blizzards
their white fluffy scarves

Collected Haiku

Detroit, five a.m.—
Soon, my city will rise and
disturb the ravens.

Windmills in autumn/
apple orchards/ falling fruits
of nativity.

Flowers on your grave
wilt like the words I could say
that might bring you back.

Midnight festivals:
paper lanterns burning oil
in the summer mist.

Music can transform
uncomfortable silence
into miracles.

I want to take my
time with your hourglass and then
come back for seconds.

When you go away
the rabbits will not come back
from the magic hat.

Eagles lock talons
together they form and break
like the divine winds.

You are the warden
of my prison of regrets
you have all the keys.

She holds my hand tight
when our love is imperfect
she is not afraid.

Persian Haiku 3

    Persian Haiku 3

Two wings are enough!
To go further than too far,
What about this cage?

God is everywhere.
There are too many crimes here,
Where the hell are you?

My soul is dusty.
My body is too rusty.
Maybe I'm buried.

You heard me crying.
You wanted to heal my wound.
My heart was bleeding.

I am a bandit.
I wanted to steal your heart
Somebody stole mine.

What is happening?
Lizards were dinosaurs!
Hope for a flower.

Where are we going?
Destination is unknown.
Let’s make a U turn.

Who is lonelier?
An eagle or a vulture 
When there is no food.

I don't plant flowers.
Flowers don't have devotion.
They leave soon after.

Let me go away.
Like a mountain, majestic
The further we are.

I'm reading winter.
I’m done with summer and fall.
What happened to spring?

We are both crying,
Sad and gloomy, sky and I.
Our eyes are so wet.

So Glad They Are Back

Unusual day
There’s a strange scent in the wind,
Unfamiliar scent.

I feel eyes on me.
Carefully hidden from view,
I glance at my land.

Something is different.
A unique smell, a snapped twig.
I grow gypsy ears.

Survey horizon,
Slowly and methodically.
I am being watched.

The ground is barren.
Cold, stiff, and frozen.
So February.

Tiny glints of light 
Leads eager eyes to the south.
I know it’s an elf.

It’s not the first time.
In summer I had faeries.
Dancing with delight.

A relieved smile 
I am happy, all-knowing.
So glad they are back!

The Seasons - Rhyming Haiku

icy kiss of death
frozen on sweet autumn’s breast
winter’s frosty breath   

frozen crystal spears
melting in a thousand tears
joyful spring is here

what were buds on trees
live there dreams in lush green leaves
kissed by summer breeze

life begins to wane
summer bursting into flames
autumn’s sweet refrain

Memorial Day

soldiers gave their lives-
enormous price for freedom
Gray clouds in morning

*An unofficial beginning of summer with a long weekend of BBQ's, beer and having fun, but 
we all should take a few moments and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day.

     through clouds burning gold
move masses of water fowl
     arrows pointing south

                              twilight reflections
                         of brilliant crimson on blue
                              shadows in dark skies

                    cooling breeze whispers
               as birds fly and summer skies
                    fall into Autumn
