You are such a pro babe at Haiku, koi mai ka laal nahi who can beat you. Superb all three, my personal favorite the first one...and I so like that you keep the Haiku form as classic. superb again kudos babe (and i know your comment is either starting with a smile or a baba re :)) hugs
Baba re... first line padh kar hi ye reaction aa gaya :D :) You know me too well dear bestie <3 :) Thanks again n again for pointing out things, motivating and being the pillar of strength :)and I am real glad you noticed my effort to maintain its classic form .. koshish jaari hai....Love you Lots for these sweet words and for those which you have left unsaid...almost :p :)
Beautiful Kokila - and the images perfectly sum up the words.
Thank You Barbara.. so glad you are finding these interesting ..:)
Beautifully expressed!The third one is evocative and profound!
I am very much pleased that you are liking my efforts.. Thanks Uppal Ji :)
Whoa..again a superb set of haikus :) The last one is beautiful Kokila.. and the snow falling from your space in the first pic made it magical again :) The words etched are perfect :) (and I had no idea that the title Needles would lead to these haikus.. kudos to your imagination)
Hey Shinchan .. Thanks a TON boy ! For the first one I too felt the same and thought okay so stars bhi aa gaye finally as I was searching for a pic with dusk, pine trees and stars !The third one resonated well with you ..hmm brooding, bleeding .. bas yahi sab .. :p Jokes apart I am glad as long as you are liking anything here ..:) Keep in touch Boy :)best wishes for your A-Z :)
Well Kokila.. I loved the third one.. and in inspired me to add one more on a little positive note yet keeping the essence intact..if one can catch it.. Do visit me again.. Regards RS:)
Thanks RS .. I am pleased and humbled if these words inspired you in any sense ... I am sure to visit and I already know that I am going to experience yet another beautiful emotional pirouette your words always made my feelings do ! :) Best Kokila :)
Lovely Haiku. I wish I had the talent to write a Haiku. All the three Haiku portray different emotions. Beautifully penned, Kokila.
I have huge respect for people who write haiku. Simply beautiful read.
Thanks Saru :)happy to know you liked it :)
All 3 - Great! Nice use of the word needle.
Hello there.. Thank you for the nice words :)PS. could not locate your webpage ..
Love bleeds in the snow!! I love the use of words Kokila .. Characteristic of you :).
Thanks a lot Kiran.. you writes beauituflly dear and I am sure when/if you'll try haiku , it will come naturally to you :) Till then I am really happy to read your musings , reviews and thoughts :) its gratifying that you enjoyed these:)
Hi Vinay , Thanks for the encouragement ..Its much needed and desired :)Really pleased that you are liking these ...PS . Dont know why the reply tabs are not working.. so am replying separately ..
All are lovely haiku poems, I loved the third one .You are so talented Kokila :)
Thanks Aunt Mary ... its great to know that you enjoyed these. :)
I love the perfect use of metaphors in all your Haikus Kokila. Btw why does Mom want to stitch clothes only for the Moon and not for anyone else? ;) I like that one so much.PS- You just made me go :O seeing my wordpress notifs :D That was a marathon reading :P
Hey Ranju .. I forgot to mention it before that I generally read like this ..:)One blogger at a time .. gives me better understanding of the blog and brews a sort of familiarity with his writing style and the range too :)So if its okay with you permit me this Marathon raid at your blog :) :)
PS .. Mom has stitched clothes for all of her kids but this moon's size keeps on changing ..waxing and waning DAILY and sometimes disappearing completely on Amavasya (no moon night ) !!What to do dear ? he he .... glad you are enjoying your time here dear :)
These are gorgeous, Kokila my friend.
Thank yoou Celestine for your unwavering support and comment-love :)
That last tore MY heart out, it's so visual and powerful. I seem to say this every time I stop by here, but you do write so beautifully! Lovely haikus.PS: I must admit I didn't really get the second one (clothes for the moon) unless I read your explanation in a comment above. What an amazingly imaginative perspective!
Thanks a lot of Amy for the sweet words :) I myself, keep on raving about you so much. even if we completely ignore the amazing pictures and experiences you share with us, the name of your blog is Fascinating enough !! :):) Its heartening to know you enjoyed these but to keep the record straight, the second one (moon clothes) is not my authentic imagination but inspired by a childhood poem... I just made a haiku out of it :) Thanks again Amy...Hugs :)
Scent of pine needles...yes, they do have an exotic smell..reminds me of long lost memories, nostalgic. I can so relate with this one dear :-) The second one is so imaginative..have no words!! just great... The third one speaks of the quintessential love and being a love-lorn...BEAUTIFUl ... :-)
Hey soul-sis ...to know that you loved any thing here is always gratifying and pleasure.... Few things give me more satisfaction than when you say that you liked it :)Yeah dear, for me too, pine needles mean that smell, the chill, the fog ,warmth of love and.... Either bliss or desolation..
PS . forgot yo mention Thank you ... Bahut Sara dhanyawaad :)
Again read and enjoyed.... :-)
It is actually a good management technique. I used to wonder where to begin when I had to read blogs. There are so many good bloggers out there and I had no idea where to start. One blog at a time is a good idea. I might copy your technique. ;) And why do you even ask for permission? It is upto you. Read as and when, however you want. As long as you keep coming back, any method is fine :PThat is such a well thought concept. Now I like that particular Haiku more. The moon's size difference and clothes that don't fit. Only you can use such metaphors Kokila. Mindblowing! :D
sky a crimson dusk....so evocative. Beautifully penned, Kokila. I like how the same word expresses such different emotions/feelings in these three haikus.
Thank you Beloo for the beautiful words ..... Its a pleasure to know you liked these ... :)
Oh my god ! How do you write such beautiful haikus? Each time I read yours and Maniparna's haikus I am like speechless! .
Thanks a TON Somali...you are generous and I am humbled : )Hugs :)
Thanks a lot Ananya...your presence is special to me :)
I have read this before and it keeps making feel special :)Blood on snow - it is like a vampire's delight :D :D
Ha ha ha Teny ... That's focus :D From now onwards it would be hard for me to look at the image and feel pain.... :p :pGreat yo know vampire buddies are pleased :)
Romance, imagination and spike!Your haiku will take long to fade away...
