~ Haiku ~                                              ~ Haiku ~

Banned from the cosmos,

The shooting star, abandoned

for bending the rules!

Shared with [highlight]Haiku Horizons[/highlight], Prompt: ‘bend’

Haiku is a Japanese poem traditionally comprising of seventeen syllables, in three lines of ‘five’, ‘seven’, and ‘five’, which evokes natural images.

  • So seep thought!

  • Ah….That is so beautiful…..So So beautiful….and it is only the shooting star we wait for to make a wish….as if wishes would come true only when rules are broken….I wish sometimes words could come out of the screen and scream ……then you would realize how much I loved this Haiku…..:)

    • Thank you so much! You are the most benign person I’ve ever met through blogging, when it comes to write and comment. Your comments can make any person proud of his/her work. But I know such things come from a magnanimous heart, and a creator of your worth only.
      Means a lot. Love and hugs. 🙂 <3

      • You are very kind to say that. I am able to give that kind of response only if the writing evokes it. So all credit goes to the writer. I am the one who is enriched.

        • So am I Sunaina. Being read and appreciated by you is a pleasure indeed. 🙂

    Very beautiful! Although banished from the heavens, the broken star is rewarded for its dare and is considered a wishing star! Lovely haiku, as usual!

    • Thank you so much Rakeshji. It often happen with us too. Sometimes we are being punished for our dare by a certain set of people, similarly others appreciate and idolize us for the same. Nature teaches! Thanks for liking this. Means a lot!
