Cuba - Haiku Poem by Shreya Jani

In a heart beat
The rhythms do fade
The colours do shock

Life sandwiched in between
Happiness, sorrow, happiness again
Colours collide the senses

Music on the street
Life in a boat
Sidewalk afloat adrift again

Passions like tornado alive
Walking a melancholic saunter
Universes unaware crossing a midst

Kite on a wire
The moon above white
Perfection in tranquil clouds

Above in crowded streets
Blue, pink, yellow, green
Like trapeze artist hanging

Hearts oblivious to creation
Puff! ! The veils falls
A bride a widow

Lost found lost again
Sounds reminders of history
A lover a smile

Familiar yet a new
Dance the carnival begins
Another year has come

Lightness this time please
Sway, walk, dance, slow
The moment revolution inside! !
