Walking home

image

As the sun sets in the sky,
The birds return to their abode,
I too walk my way home,
After a day of toiling at the mill,

Its a long road, dry and bare,
My feet aches and my stomach growls,
But I keep walking steady,
As I know I’ll be home soon,

The leafless branches creak slowly ,
As the cool autumn wind blows,
The leaves that had held on bravely,
Fall from their last hope,

A little cottage at the end,
Yellow lights lit up the narrow path
Laughter of the children fill the air,
I rush forgetting my sore feet,
I was home at last,
Ah! Dear god i was home at last!

Dream

“Dream is my breath of air,

Like wings in the open sky,

Like diving in a deep wide ocean,

Like a song, like a dance,

Like a tune on the guitar,

 Like a wish that my heart makes,

Like a smile on my mother’s face,

Like a story that my soul loves,

Like a whole new universe,

 Like the sparkling eyes of a child,

Like falling in love with a stranger,

Like a drop of sunshine in winter,

Like a haunting ghost, like a shadow,

Like a dozen vodka shots,

 Like a hope to live, a destination,

Like home on the meadow,

Like a script of my movie,

Like a wand with phoenix feather,

 Without dream, a life is not lived,

Like a colonel without badges,

Like a hero without strength,

I shall dream till the very end,

No offense, my dear friend.”

Just like that ‘Haikus’……!!!!!

To write nice Haikus

While counting the syllables

Oh! Not so easy

============================================

Night sky, bright with stars

Crescent moon reigns’ the heaven

Ah! Eternal bliss

================================

Dark, dark growling clouds

Solace from the may summer

Rain pours, heart frolics

============================================

Rain pours from heaven

Pitter-patter everywhere

Rhythm of my soul

=============================

Dark night, deep silence

Wide awake and deep in thought

His pen writes a tale

============================

Crispy pakoras

Along with a cup of tea,

That’s my monsoon day

=============================

Seeking sweet nectar,

From one flower to another

Butterfly’s odyssey

============================================

Last day of exams,

Yes! Last question, Last answer

Final bell, pure bliss!!!!

============================

Shrill voice breaks the quiet;

Into the night, lone owl’s flight

What a silly fright!!

============================================

Dark house, lonely road,

Not a living soul in sight,

Then who laughs so loud?

============================
