The Holy Ganga: Haiku


Indian Bloggers

The capture of the Holy Gangotri clicked from the valleys of Uttarakhand— the divinity of the Ganga transcends all the conceptual sphere and commemorates the continuous flow of life.

Celestial delight

Molten fire turns in calm

Spurting sanctitude 

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.
