12 Haiku

1.

a murky
anniversary morning--
the red table cloth


2.

our third date
she studies my
palm lines


3.

toying with
pressed rose petals
early winter wind

4.

summer end--
the fan blade knocks off
a butterfly

5.

dinnertime
at the hospital, I wait
for sedatives

6.

at the crossroads
a tramp speaking to himself
my lost poem


7.

shadows
bringing back the anguish
winter without you



8.

summer …
village boys plunging
into the pond


9.

the pensive face
peeled off a tree trunk—
autumn…


10.

the hospital smell
still following me
their forced smiles


11.

the new sedative…
she disappears behind
a veil of thick mist



12.

hospital window—
firecrackers lighting up
Diwali sky
