Five Haiku and Five Micro Poems by Snigdha Agrawal

 



Haikus

 

Carpet of blossoms

pink duvet for homeless man

Nature's funeral


 

Death took a step back

Autumn had not yet arrived

Where is the hurry


 

Cup of nostalgia

overturned by accident

Tears fill dimpled cheeks


 

Rice and lentils mixed

colour of sunflower fields

palate yearns for this


 

glistening black cliffs

rising from sandy beaches

melted ice cream cone


 


Micro Poetry

 


Creek behind cottage

Whisky decanter refilled

Concert music playing 

No entry fee

 


Down in the valley

Witnessed a strange scene

Bees writing music notes

sitting on purple peonies

 


Restless in life

Death brought peace

To please the demi-gods

sold mind, body, soul

 


May you never lose sight

of the hand that rests

upon your head

protective

 


Tucked in your buttonhole

closest I could get

till visit to the dry cleaners
