My Haiku


Kapil, one of my blogger friend introduced me to a world of Haiku last month. For those who think "Haiku Who?" go here-----> Haiku. In short, haiku is a very short Japanese Poetry mainly comprising of 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5-7-5 syllables and it should reveal an image or a scene. It has many other rules and techniques but i'm gonna skip all that since i'm a short-cut lady :D

Haiku have evolved over the years. And so i'm gonna attempt it, pliz don't laugh. You should try it too, it's quite fun once you get the hang of it.

Here goes nothing  :-
---------------------------------------------------------

The screen did not change..
Humming a bad tune she stared
Waiting for comments!

----------------------------------------------------------

A flying bullet...
Sweet girl standing at the park
The gun in her hand.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Tossing and turning,
Counting the mosquito bites...
Those insomniac nights

------------------------------------------------------------


Pretty butterfly!
Flying freely in the sun
Born from ugly thing.


-------------------------------------------------------------

A promising eve
Smoke bubbles float everywhere!!
Fun time with Hookah..

--------------------------------------------------------------

Thousand miles away
The boy looked at his parents...
Skype connecting them

--------------------------------------------------------------

Blue man with long tail
He saved a fantasy land..
The blue Avatar

---------------------------------------------------------------

Sleek and clean it glides
And no empty seat at sight !
New metro in town

----------------------------------------------------------------

Little boys and girls
Dancing like no tomorrow
Oh, my poor old ears!
