3 Haikus

Stir

Sudden memories
Swell within, stirring the womb
Like unborn children.


Chores

Goodbye, it is late.
Must get the hanging linen
Before the dew does.


Dough

Unleavened unformed
Waiting for your touch, it’s time
Once more, to be born.

hey atreyee,
All three haikus are good,
and your personal stamp stands out
like a watermark when one uses the
mind's eye to see.... here's wishing
you many more exciting moments.

cheers !

I don't recall the English equivalent readily but in Hindustani I would call it; 'Gagar me sagar'. All the three are so fresh in expression and full of feelings-independent as haikus but having a continuing undercurrent. Well, I can't explain but I find them so refreshingly linked with the urge of creativity-- small,insignificant and routine acts and moments could be so powerful, so engrossing, so new and so complete by themselves! Remarkably caught and woven in words.

Fell in love with the second one...to me it captures best the intrinsic beauty of a haiku...that such a mundane exercise can be turned into a sublime image, you make it seem so easy...keep them coming!
