A Friend Indeed: Haiku


Indian Bloggers

Life snatches away friends — this is one of the worst adversities of modern day. We have no time for having friends. Sadly, I don’t have any and I try to befriend with my daughters, mother, sister,…. family. But still miss those friends, with whom I used to pour my heart out, to whom I shared all my secrets, dilemmas, frustrations and melancholy. And at times, it feels no one is my confidante but my shadow.

In this scorching sun,

Come my shadow, above me

Be a friend in need

Sangeeta Mishra

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 #micropoetry.

    I think we belong to the age group when we pass through this kind of phase and I can vouchsafe for the thoughts and reflections in the brilliantly worded haiku ..
