Haiku#2 - Green

(Image Courtesy -
Beautiful Indian flag is tricolored,
Saffron represents the vast plains,
White the snow-capped Himalayas,
Green the rich laden forests,
Is it time to change?

This is written for Haiku Heights. The prompt being Green.

This is my interpretation of our glorious flag. I want to believe that Pingali Venkayya, who designed the Indian Flag might have had similar thoughts. Our country is so beautiful and is having Himalayas on one side, Thar desert on the other, the peninsular south which has rich forests. One would fall short of words, if India's natural beauty has to be described.

All this being true, its also true that we are losing the snow capped mountains to Global Warming and all the forests are slowly diminishing. So, this Haiku prompt was thought provoking for me.

I wish we try to retain our country's beauty and not just restrict the beauty to our flag?

Love, for a beautiful soul

Greed causes desire,
Envy causes spite,
Lust causes anxiety,

Love, cleans,
purify's the soul.
Fill yourself with Love.

Haiku fever has caught on. Written for Haiku Heights.

Soul - Haiku Heights #1

Friendship, Love,
Marriage, Misunderstandings, Missing -


Friendships turn into love, and love into marriage. With marriage, comes misunderstandings and that is when many married couples, search for their missing soul. When did it all begin? I mean, when did they start losing their soul, to the meaningless misunderstandings? They realize they were once madly in love. Are they the same couple?

Just a piece of fiction. :)

First attempt at the Haiku Heights. Hope I got it right and people like it.

 Inspired by the theme at

Krishna needs no introduction. I love Krishna. I like him most as a naughty boy who is stealing butter from every possible house in Vrindavan. Krishna is an attraction. He steals your heart, at the slightest chance.

Krishna is the beauty of this world. Krishna is the music in my soul. Krishna is the soul of my life. Krishna is the smile that heals my heart. Krishna is the love that sweeps me off my feet. Krishna is the reason why I live and he will be the reason, I leave this earth to unite unto him.

Krishna I dont understand all that you do. I scold you sometimes for I cant take anyone for granted but you. Forgive me for my ignorance. Love me as ever. Be with me. Hold my hands and guide me, as a mother would hold her child's.

Celebrating Krishna. Happy Janmashtami.
