benign smile



days after
the thunderstorm ~
the earth tenders
a benign smile to the clearing
skies

the storm that was. . .


May - the time when cuckoos return with their songs. One of them was probably nesting in one of these trees, or may be it just loves the amaltas, and perches on there and sings...

After the storm yesterday, the bird, the song...is all gone. 
Birds ~ such masters in impermanence. . . .

Life, dance on the edges of Time


'Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.' ~ Rabindranath Tagore

winter wind ~

It starts off as a short story, often ends in three lines. That's the story these days. Wind brings with it the story....goes away with the will to write ~

Haiku is possibly a potent seed that needs to be nurtured into a story ~
