Haiku #1 – Monsoon


Thundering Skies

Tall Swaying Coconut Palms

Broken Lonely Heart

PS: This is my first attempt at Haiku, a style I have consciously kept myself away from as I felt that I could never do justice to it. If there are any mistakes, please do point out, Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขd love to learn but please be a little kind ๐Ÿ˜›

This is in response to the WriteTribe Prompt also linking this to the UBC Day 12.

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.

  1. Greetings from the UBC! I love your haiku. For a first attempt, it is wonderful. The first line has four syllables, instead of five, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I used to shy away from haiku as well, until I had to write one for a poetry challenge. Something in me clicked and now, I love writing them, especially continuous haiku (several haiku grouped together as one poem). Keep writing!

    1. Thank you Corinne.
      I was so apprehensive to put this up, that I pestered Meena a lot before actually swallowing the lump in my throat and hit the publish button.

  3. Shouldnt it have been a broken skull with all those swaying coconut palms?
    Maybe that’s why the lonely heart.. heart misses the head ๐Ÿ˜€
