Eight Haikus by PVM
21st March 2015
Written on Ugadi Day

It is raining leaves
Leaves everywhere -- only to
Create a rustle as I walk
Gusty winds at night
Rain of tiny unripe mangoes
Never to grow again
Rainy season arrives
Plantain tree stem hides
A tiny frog from cats
The summer heat is horrible
The old man left his home
Only to leave his body behind
Stagnant water stinks
Mosquitoes announce their arrival
by ringing and stinging
Early morning sunshine
welcomes me with a hug
asking the lazy guy in me to run
Hot coffee on Rosewood table
spills as a lizard escapes
pre-tasting my coffee?
LEDs emit cool white light
contrasting the mind within
boiling like some bathtub water
​KIndly leave any Haiku you may be prompted to write, here in this blog as a comment. Thanks​
