Droplets of Desire

petals of desire

nestled in silver droplets

aftermath of rain

silver beads

drip with languid ease

on blossoms

 a shimmer

of colours in orgasm

splendour of nature

Haiku My Heart: Raindrops

Done for Carpe Diem Haiku Shuukan. And also for Recuerda Mi Corazon. 

The emphasis is on A in G R A C E (enlarge your capacity of compassion) as defined by Joan Halifax, a Zen Buddhist, with greater emphasis on “Attaining to Self Other.” Much similar to the Christian JOY, acronym for Jesus first, Others next, Yourself at last.

Raindrops

 first raindrops

this month of May

scorched earth cools

raindrops

just a drop

basil blooms

cheerless morn

even the birds

chirp in praises

Wandering Crow

from the tree top

hidden from view

the nest of a wandering crow

from the tree top

emptiness dropped down

in a cicada shell

silent sound drowns out the cries

crushing against the rebirth

Foxgloves

5-7-5-7-7

bells sigh in the breeze

pink blooms reeling off their musk

a heady poison

yet cure for my fragile heart

a balm for perpetual sleep
