New Haiku – November 29,2011

Last leaf

Last goodbye

Sad tree

———————————-

Mirage water

Untouchable

Undrinkable

———————————–

Broken mirror

Splintered face

which one do I mend?

————————————-

Conch sounds

Commotion in the temple

I stand in total silence

———————————————

Last rites in Varanasi

Last swim

in the Ganges

———————————————

Total darkness

Moon rules

Sun eclipse

———————————————————

Under the tree

Pillow of snow

Sleeps a leaf

—————————–

Hole in the sky

Ocean overflows

No higher ground

——————————-

Shadow ran away

From sun to take shelter

Under the tree

—————————————

Blue sky

Blue earth

Lost horizon

——————————————-

White Alaska

White bed sheet

With oil spots

New Haiku 11/23/2011

—————————-

Tears come out

In grief

Why in happiness?

—————————–

Bees and fragrance

Hand in hand

Take flight

————————–

Rain drops

Hitting the pavement

Sound of drums

—————————–

Wet dawn

 snuggled  up

Under white blanket

——————————

Dew drops

Jump from the branch

One by one

——————————–

To get love

Is to give love

A fool never knows

———————————-

Blue sky

Seven colored painting

Stolen by wind

——————————–

Captive fate

In palm’s lifelines

Struggling to get out

—————————–

While I found you

In the process

Lost myself

———————————-

Haiku nov/24/2011

first inhale, last exhale
how many in between
no one knows
———————————-
silence is
worth
a thousand arguments!
———————————-
Sun jumped
in the ocean, boiled
to become a cloud!
—————————————-
snow swinging
on tree branches
like a monkey!
————————————-
A shadow never leaves
even at night, don’ believe?
just turn the light on!
——————————-
tsunami sent
huge waves
to conquer earth!
————————————–
hurting on the cross
Jesus said,
take me down, now!
—————————————
freezing cold
fog every where
dawn shivers!
—————————————–
heavy fog
on the window seal
white curtain!

New Haiku 11/17/2011

by Vijay Joshi ‘word hunter’
——————————-
Dull overcast sky
clouds engulfed sun
darkness wins!
——————————–
Leaf is fast a sleep
on pillow of snow
below the tree!
——————————-
Dew-drops
make soft sound
while falling on the ground!
—————————————
Leaf-less trees
stand shivering in cold
on a january night!
————————————
Yellow leaves
scurry around
like children in Halloween!
—————————————-
Silence speaks
louder than
words!
————————————
Sun jumped
into the ocean
to become a cloud!
————————————-
Snow swings
on a limb,
like a child!
——————————–
Dew-drops
fall from the leaves
to become pearl!
——————————–
Many roads
lead to the destination
which one is right?
———————————
Sad memories
overflow,
Shower of tears!
—————————–
Ocean wave
rushes ashore,
To play with children!

More Haiku nov/21/2011

—————————————–

ocean wasted

river’s drinking water

now she is thirsty!

——————————————-

Rain painted

7 colored arch

In the sky

——————————————-

The last war

Fight it alone

With death!

——————————————

Is it Half full

Or half empty?

Only the glass knows!

————————————–

some one else

wrote my fate,

Suffer I must?

—————————————

Even a blind person

Can watch

Dreams in his sleep!

—————————————-

Not handwriting,

Your thoughts

you should change

Last breadth

Why waste it

With a sigh!

—————————————–

Moon stayed late

Went for a walk

Ran into Sun!

—————————————–

Blue sky blue earth

Blue every where  

Invisible horizon?

——————————— ——-

Leaves in yellow pajamas

Fall gently down

On yellow bed below!

—————————————–

Shower of stars

Moon celebrating tonight

4th of July!

——————————————

Mountain is taking

Hot golden shower

Poor spring flowers!

2012

Earth is no more

am I dead or alive?

—————————————–

Rain keeps coming  

Drops become a brook

Leaves sail Downstream!
