Haiku(2) - Poem by Yasmeen Khan

We long for deep greens
Along the life-giving waters
Thirsty boughs with parched lips

    Desiccated boughs want water to flourish but fail to do so, same in our life happens, nothing could lessen our burden, our miseries....multi_interpretable Haiku... digging in it still...fabulous (Report) Reply
