TEN HAIKU
1.
Potholes
spots of sunshine
wobble

2.
Sudden downpour
noisy trucks at midnight
crowded footbridge

3.
Sipping coffee
at a wayside stall
cockroaches too

4.
The morning sun
fondling with tender fingers
the red roses


5.
Chasing each other
in the bylane
two birds

6.
A girl
between the railway tracks
swings her pony tail

7.
Softness of wind
magic in her nearness
sleight of hand

8.
End of festival:
I stop by her haiku
on twitter.com

9.
A teenager
glides past me on roller blades
her long hair flows behind

10.
A toddler
trying to stand up by the pram—
young mother watches

FIVE TANKA
1.
The mind creates
withdrawn to its own pleasures
a green thought
behind the banyan tree
behind the flickering lust

2.

Age seems to stop
for a while in sexact
a running horse
***** and heavenly
white as a lightning

3.

Their minds
hallowed in the borrowed sun
joyous in hate
celebrate emptiness
of the ****’s *******

4.

The lane to temple
through foul drain, dust and mud:
black back of Saturn
in a locked enclosure
a harassed devotee

5.

Not much fun—
cold night, asthmatic cough
and lonely Christmas:
no quiet place within
no fresh start for the New Year

STORM
after the storm
picking fallen tamarind--
too high the tree

LOVE
making love
hands clasped and head hung--
prayer in bed

SHADE
sudden downpour--
waiting in shade for someone
with umbrella

LUST
The mind creates
withdrawn to its own pleasures
a green thought
behind the banyan tree
behind the flickering lust

Untitled
softness of wind
magic in her nearness
sleight of hand

ANGELS FUME
They say my birth was a heavenly event:
here I am suffering third rate villains
that ***** walls to stop the chariots
from Merkaba: the angels fume but who cares
heaven is a mirage in human zoo

--R.K.SINGH
