Haiku for the New Year
by Prof. Dr. Anil K. Prasad
Bookmark and Share
 

Fresh fingers moving
Between white rice grains hiding
Flowers of fresh smell 
Both hands stretch and try
To touch the feet shrinking back
Blessings from heaven
 
Moving down to earth
Anxiety-ridden nimble steps
Vanish near the bend
 
Food is good with three
Of us jokingly fighting
Teeth chewing alone
 
Time’s clouds see the bow
Raining down beneath
Arch is wet with hues
 
Souls in flesh and blood
Moving fingers, eyes wide
A sweet song is heard
 
Computers perched on
Watch me searching on a page
Words freed from a cage
 
Words jostling with fear
Vying with themselves for voice
On tiptoe waiting  
 
Distant dreams bedeck
Palm trees beside the blue shore
Abandoned buds bloom
 
Cuckoos congregate  
Dirge in chorus hint at birth
Cradle on the treetops
 
Green velvet spread
Over the face of earth dreaming
Tears on the petals
 
Black ice-cold stallions
Pull the reins of December 
New Year Jumped in

Comment Time’s clouds see the bow
Raining down beneath
Arch is wet with hues

Good one. May I rewrite line 3 as

Time’s clouds see the bow
Raining down beneath
Fresh paint on the arch
