ORCHARD OF HAIKU / Aroop Mitra

 
Aroop Mitra
 
 
ORCHARD OF HAIKU
 
flocks of swallows
skim over mountain lake
diving after perch
 
 
chirps quell dawnlight
red hot iron stove
hums , simmering
 
 
in my rosary
i find in
finite beads , universes
 
 
o bumble bee ,
at the seminar
buzzing your comments
 
 
were i a grain of salt
refuge me not in ocean
just a tear drop
 
 
stray motes of dust
waltz in sunlit beams
each alive & unique
 
 
falling acacia leaf
in blind abandon
discovers dance
 
 
mist smudged peaks
aromas of camellias
mirror fjords
 
 
thunderstorm died :
old scarecrows stagger
gathering detritus
 
 
flickers jigsaw upstream
shoals of monarch butterflies
vie kingfishers
 
 
worn woody park bench
empty at last
sighs relief
