Motherhood: Haiku

broken motherhood

Indian Bloggers

[dropcap]A[/dropcap] [highlight]Haiku[/highlight] 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]. But, my Haiku is a new adaptation of the traditional one as I have portrayed the complex human emotions instead of the beauty of nature.

Thee scratched my soul, pulled

the umbilical cord harsh,

Motherhood’s broken.
