1 Tree Top

'Im green ' says the leaf
Oh, I'm red says the flower
'I'm both'- the parrot

2 Sky Unfurls

'You're blue' says the sky
'Also green' says the ocean
'Me too' says peacock

3 Naughty Star And Aunty Earth

Naughty star winkling
Aunty earth gaping blinking
Beating soon the sun

4 Chickrowcoo(Haiku Series)

Crow hatched cuckoo's eggs
By mistake though cuckoo chick
Cooed the crow her mom

Moved crow thought a while
Got her crow chick wedded fine
To sweet cuckoo chick

And cuckoo bird birthed
Jumbling their names Crow-koo named
Their babe 'Chickrowcoo'
