Haiku & Tanka Poems by Ankur Jyoti Saikia

 



Florescence

 

undyed drops drench dirt

estivating florets flush

lush leafage emerge

dust does cherish

every bloom of mirth


 

Roadside haiku

 

disentangling the

miracle bound to a thread

a balloon seller


 

stride shorter than breath

the labourer returns home

his burdened arms droop


 

Burnt-out

 

without an outlet

withers worth

inertia inhibits

breaking bonds

pessimistic procrastination


 

wax, wane, repeat

 

a lone Sisiphus

knocking out

knocked by

a boulder of shadow

a fortnightly affair


 

Ecliptic kiss

 

Can't

we say

an eclipse

is nothing but

a shadow kiss of two lovelorn souls?
