sands of time

~ Haiku ~                                                                                           ~ Haiku ~

Time leaves all behind,
Joys, sorrows of yesterdays,
become surpassed by!

Time vouchsafes secrets,
Reveals forgotten footprints
Left on sands of time!

Time, the clandestine
healer of incurred scratches
etched on sands of time!

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.

    Wait for me to strike back. :/

    No. I’m not trying to write a haiku. Just stealing yours and using them in my story, claiming as my own. Moon is known as a thief. 🙂

    Itna soch kaise leti hain aap?

    • I’m waiting for that story very ardently Rakeshji. I want the moon to sprinkle some glory and aura on my haiku. Eagerly waiting to read your story with my part. I’m sure ‘the thief’ would turn ‘the robber’ (Robin Hood) for me.
      Well thanks! I’m also a thief. Love stealing ideas and inspirations. One of the destinations is ‘Tales of the opal moon’. 🙂
