Haiku...........porcelain

shattered dreams
fragile, porcelain-like,
now, mere splintered existence



The monsoons have hit my city in a big way....it has its own magical charm. I would like to share a few thoughts with all of you.....

Monsoon Musings....

....... and the pregnant sky opened its arms,
letting an unfettered torrent rush through.
great rolling balls of thunder,
play hokey pokey with electric flashes of lightning!

a symphony of sounds burst forth,
drumbeats of pattering raindrops on barren rooftoops,
synchronise with cymbal clashes of astral music,
while the heavenly orchestra bows to its own beat!

here, on earth, excitement of another kind ensues
trees wrench their branches forward,
clasping the rains in a never-ending embrace,
plants sway to a magical score, its been a long, long wait!

little puddles and baby streams rush to compete,
while birds protect their young in fragile homes!
powerless animals, all huddle together,
humbled before nature's awesome glory!

people, run helter-skelter, seeking the comfort
of home and hearth, relieved still...for the respite!
children, seeking merriment from these rains,
oh, to shriek and play, and float paper boats!

i sit by the window, looking out at this miracle of nature,
in my mind's eye, i soar open-armed into a verdant valley!
i know, that rejuvenation is on the cards,
and hope that the thirsting emptiness of my heart
gets slaked by the life-giving nurture of the rains!

  1. Your haiku perfectly describes the exquisite yet fragile nature of dreams. I enjoyed reading about the monsoon. Brought back memories -- I used to live in Arizona, where they have the monsoon in the summer and early fall.
