Indian Bloggers

[dropcap]A[/dropcap] Haiku is a Japanese poem traditionally comprising of seventeen syllables, in three lines of ‘five’, ‘seven’, and ‘five’, which evokes natural images, now a days referred to as [highlight]#micropoetry[/highlight].

After that stormy night, I found that single flower in my garden, the next morning, which survived just because it was covered with leaves. What a blissful feelings it was, to see those leaves express love and the flower being pampered!

Leaves swaddle flower

Stopping howling gales

  • That is so beautiful — the image of leaves swaddling and protecting flowers from the vagary of nature. I’m guessing it was the maternal instincts that inspired these lines. 🙂 Have a beautiful weekend, you two. 🙂

    • Yes, you are right. It is indeed the maternal instinct. What else it could be, being written by a mother ? Thank you so much for your kind words. Have a nice weekend to you too. 🙂 <3
