HAIKU

I have been lately not very active on either of my blogs; no addition to the “Chronicles of our love story” or to “Astonishing India” , no Weekly Photo challenges, no comments on the blogs of other blogger friends……absolutely nothing. But I have a valid excuse! I am almost on the last leg of my Creative Writing course and hence I was busy writing the assignment due for submission in May 2012.

I have under this course tried writing Haiku for the first time. I would like all the blogger friends to please give their opinions and advises on these :

#1.

Bare bough longing some color

Stinging words bleed the heart dry, lifeless

Has the autumn already arrived?

#2.

The deathly pale cracked earth

Rinsed, quenched, alive and bobbing paper boats

Elixir from the heaven above

#3.

Fire, wine and white snow

The melted wax and broken bangles shard

Memory of the night before

About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....

  2. have you forgotten a word in the first line of the first haiku? It reads oddly. I kinda like ’em – htough I also find haiku very difficult.
