Five Haiku by Amit Parmessur





Loners to lovers

Lost deep in labyrinth; now

Buried in backyard.


The Dark Plunge


A mermaid-to-be

You stare at pregnant dewdrops

on the mourning rose




My eyes have the strength

Of the sea in them, my heart

The weakness of waves.




I build, stop, rebuild—

stop again, panting, legless.

A staircase pops up.




Snowmen under snow

I carve angels on white slates

for those without home
