Jharnaa (Waterfall) - A Hindi Haiku - Poem by Sunil Uniyal

jhar jhar jhar jhar -
pahaari dhalaan par
ek jharnaa nirantar

Translation:

jhar jhar jhar jhar -
on the mountain slope
an endless waterfall

    In your haiku I hear the enduring sound of a waterfall, like a low call deep in the jungle. Although I do not know Hindi, I see the beauty of the word JHARNAA, which incorporates the sound of falling water. I wish English had a word like that for waterfall. CATARACT evokes precipitous rocks, but has no sound. CASCADE has an action but no sound. What would such a word sound like in English? RUSHFALL...SOUGH-FLING! (Report) Reply

    Superb, the metaphor for life...flowing continuously like life does. (Report) Reply
