You — Haiku

moon shines in glory — blushes happily the sea — what for, without you ?

Butterfly — Haiku


aimless butterfly -- in a jam packed city bus -- taking a free ride ...

 
 

Ephemeral — Haiku


her lovely young face and this freshly blossomed rose -- pity, both must fade

her last fleeting glance -- lost in the gathering dusk -- keeping doubts alive ...

down the lonesome way …

standing together —

girl in bright orange saree —

and her lonely thoughts …
