Milestone- A Haiku - Poem by Sunil Uniyal

journeying still
the haiku highroad ~
no milestones
The above mentioned haiku was written on 31.10.2010, in commemoration of the first publication of my haikus entitled 'Milestone' in the Mirror Magazine of Mumbai in Oct 1983. These haikus with some revision, are as follows:

look at it or not
it stands there alone-
the milestone

sun or rain or snow-
stick to your ground
like the milestone

how much gone?
how much to go still
O milestone?

how many went this way
and never returned
O milestone!

humming together
song of distance song of nearness-
the milestone

the road is full of risky bends
wish me well
O milestone.

ninety-six kilometres:
thank you Mr Milestone
