A Haiku on Haiku!

Indian Bloggers

  • What to write? My mind is completely drained out!
  • My brain is cluttered with thoughts, but I have no time to transform them into black and white!
  • We are running short of offers for sponsored posts!
  • Social media, WhatsApp kill creativity!
  • I have a very nice and detailed story framed in my mind but I’m losing track on the narration part!


There are multiple reasons for a blogger for not to blog, and then a little one comes to the rescue — Haiku…It takes only a few minutes to frame a Haiku, and you are sorted with ensured visitors on your site. It’s shady yet smart, devious yet deadly way of blogging where your grey cells are at command. And the best part ? Your readers enjoy reading it (as it hardly takes time), and you are compelled to return the favour. 😉

Google says —“A Haiku is a Japanese poem traditionally comprising of seventeen syllables, in three lines of ‘five’, ‘seven’, and ‘five’, which evokes natural images. But I say—

~ Haiku ~                                                                                          ~ Haiku ~


Haiku is a skill

To serve your readers something

When nothing to say


Jokes apart, and on a serious note, my today’s haiku, on haiku is…

 ~ Haiku ~                                                                                          ~ Haiku ~


Haiku is induced

For volumes of emotions

Served as a canapé

    I loved both the haikus on haiku 🙂

    You know The second haiku proves that you are one of those select few, who actually understand what haiku is. Calling haiku a simple poetry is like calling Bible a storybook. It’s much more than a poetry. It’s a Tori, or a gate to the infinity! It’s like a finger pointing to the moon! Merely a medium and not the target. People try to make sense in those 17 syllables and invariably fail. The 17 syllables are simply a key, which unlocks the vast world of mysticism!

    Since its beginning, haiku are used as a coded way towards spirituality. The samurai used it all the time, from romance to ceremony to death poems. I really admire those, who capture the true spirit of haiku. I’m not so good at that as like a lumbering elephant, I require more space to weave my web. I did try to write a couple, then gave up in disgust and decided that I should rather leave it for people who are really good at it.

    If words were dried leaves,
    What a beautiful bonfire
    My poems would make! 😀

    • And my words are too feeble to express before that of yours Rakesh ji. You are a reservoir of words and a master-craftsman of weaving them. Your blog, stories, comments, replies… all augment my knowledge and I feel I’m still in my learning process. I’ve read your above mentioned post “Samurai” and it’s sheer elation for a reader. I feel so privileged being read and appreciated by such a learned person.

      Thank you so much for dropping by every time, for TSS becomes enriched. 🙂

  • So a haiku is a clever deal to fight the writer’s block. haha. Good one, Sangeeta.

    • Truly Said Bushra. Thank you so much. Glad that you liked it. 🙂

  • The first one is a misuse 😉 🙂

  • Good one. In computer programming we call it recursion 🙂

    • Thank you so much Subhodeep. Glad to know this new term. 🙂

  • He he he, nice one Maitreni :).. A haiku on haiku. I think the best part is that it keeps the blog in constant motion and prevents the writer block 🙂

    • Well said Vinay. It’s indeed a good deal to avert the writer block. Thank you so much. Glad that you liked it. :):

  • Anjali Sengar

    A lovely haiku on haiku 😉

  • That’s a good one — the second one!!
    It is trying about trying to say a lot in a condensed and artistic way.

    • Well said D. It’s about saying thousand words with a small gesture. thank you. 🙂

  • bushra

    Social media / whatsapp kill creativity.. :/ This broke me.
    Lovely Haiku. 🙂

    • It’s Pathetic but true. Thank you so much Bushra. Glad that you liked it. 🙂

  • Jyothi D’mello

    This was a fun post SangeetaJi. And I loved both Haikus 🙂

    • Thank you so much Jyothi. Glad that you liked the post. 🙂

  • Jyotirmoy Sarkar

    Both are good but i liked the first one.

  • Hahaha loved the first one 😂

  • Haha… I think haiku has an impact that lasts long though it encapsulates only the moment, ephemeral yet eternal… 🙂

    • What a beautiful elucidation for Haiku ! Only you can describe a Haiku so beautifully Maniparna. Thank you so much for these beautiful words. 🙂
