Haiku Collection - I - Poem by sathya narayana

Summer power cut
In the blacked-out village streets
Glow worms

Autumn night
In the bright moon light
Naked timberline

Snow covered mountains
Walking there all alone
A naked yeti

rain doctor helped
the earth deliver
baby saplings

someday in March
the northern woods woke up
to cuckoo's song

whistling winds brought news
Of an impending drizzle
Trees nodded thanks

“He’s such a flirt
This handsome butterfly”
Gossiped flowers

With tearful eyes
Farmers prayed for rain
Somewhere thundered hope
