Monsoon & Autumn Haiku


Awake or dreaming  ,   
The summery night burned her-
Gone was he.

Eyes met and they waved-
The rain thrashed,
Yet they stayed.

 I run as the sky turns gray, 
A croak and a squeal, 
We both jump away .

The squirrel and its brother 
Race each other .
Autumn wins as leaves wither .

The trees grow tan  
As they race-
Squirrels raid my garden terrace.

Her tail wags 
As she greets the boy 
And steals his wet sock, her pet ploy. 

It rains and turns dark- 
Flash and a crack, 
It leaves its mark .

About the post: My first attempts at Haiku. This was for a competition which I didn’t win but atleast I learnt a tad bit about Haiku. Must keep practising 🙂
