Puzzle: Haiku

puzzle rains

Indian Bloggers

It was a clear afternoon yesterday, till we experienced the first downpour of the monsoons. I was out on a drive and it started drizzling. Suddenly, the entire view outside the car window got blurred and the glass seemed like a Croxley puzzle— hazy, complex and unsolved. Life is like that only! At times, it gets incomprehensible even with subtle things or else sometimes, it’s capable of sustaining the most brusque situations.

~ Haiku ~                                                                                            ~ Haiku ~

Clear glass turns puzzle
Coined by Raindrops, fluttering
on the Windowpanes.

Truth becomes baffled,
Intertwined with perplexed life,
A jigsaw puzzle

Blurred vision makes
a hazy puzzle out of
cogent emotions

    What a beautiful creation of innocent raindrops! We observe many things, but it takes a hint to see the beauty of them. The above haiku were those hints.

    Loved them to core!

    Being a pluviophile, everything about the rain enchants me. I have also pondered on such things about life when I watched rain drop on a glass pane. You've put it so perfectly in words 🙂

    • Glad that you liked it Purba. As I have said earlier, it gives me utmost pleasure when you read and appreciate my words. Thank you so much. 🙂

  • Awesome….simple is not so simple sometimes…..raindrops making a puzzle, blurring the vision, and fueling our emotions with a mystery of their own….!

    • Well said Sunaina. Simple in not so simple sometimes and mysteries get easily accessible at times… This is life… Thank you so much. 🙂

    i love to read your Haikus, not only because they are very nice but also the reason is—i learn many new words.

    • Thank you so much Jyotirmoy This one is indeed very special, or else I’m still a beginner in Haiku writing. I’m in the learning process. But your appreciation truly means a lot. 🙂
