Some Haikus

Found this webpage online which has compiled the #haikus posted by me on Twitter on a beautiful page. Haiku is an ancient Japanese zen poetry form which has only 3 lines with 17 syllables(5-7-5 pattern).They are deceptively simple and often involve nature, my understanding on nature's involvement is that they were written by monks who had nothing else to observe but nature (how lucky and blissful). The beauty of haikus lies in their simplicity and subtlety, but they often have multiple dimensions. I am presenting my haikus here. 


Lush green monsoon hills
A waterfall flowing carelessly 
And a train coming out of the tunnel.

~

Darkness flows through the moon
Enchanting symphonies of the night
Sun breaks the silence.

~

Flow like a river
Just for a while
The pain needs a medium.

~

River caressed the sides
Playing with it
The boat moved on.

~

Sudden bursts of smiles
The kid kept giggling
Mysteries unraveled.

~

Whispering mornings
Sleepy grass
frozen tears.

~

Faded colors
Of the green leaves
Freedom.

~

Rise up and raise your arms
Ask
Embrace the shower.

~

They fluttered at the edge
Anxiously waiting
Birds cannot hide from the sky.

~

Like the iron, Like the man
Everything decays
Just a matter of time.

~

After a while
You start asking questions
From the paths.

~

A kind of numbness
A kind of love
Eyes sometimes, suffer a lot.
