Quack Haiku-I And Compensation - Poem by Sathya Narayana

A fitter cut his hand
A farmer lost his land
One lakh rupees was paid
As slow poison

Glittering lights
Of a roof garden party
Beggar blinks in wait

Pleasure sails
In Dal lake, on trendy boats
Rower counts his coins

Ants under your feet
Ever heard the crackling sounds
Of their legs breaking

Reaching the ocean

Man and woman
Two sides of one divine

(Whenever l tried haiku, my thoughts invariably slip into associated pain, tragedy and philosophy. This is the result and hence QUACK HAIKU)

    First of all these are no quak Haikus. i believe Haikus strict structure underwent change when it stepped out of shores of Japan.
    as usual, great haikus, your sensitivity and soul shines through10

    I enjoyed your poems, most of all the haikus and some of the short ones they reminded me to the ancient oriental proverbs, which were charged of meaning and wisdom thanks (Report) Reply

    O embodiment of truth,

    your haiku have such powerful contrasts between rich and poor,
    big and small... you make everyone think
