Haiku and Tanka published in Syndic Journal, #8



FIVE TANKA:  R.K. SINGH
1.
The mind creates
withdrawn to its own pleasures
a green thought
behind the banyan tree
behind the flickering lust
2.
Age seems to stop
for a while in sexact
a running horse
erect and heavenly
white as a lightning
3.
Their minds
hallowed in the borrowed sun
joyous in hate
celebrate emptiness
of the pimp’s asshole
4.
The lane to temple
through foul drain, dust and mud:
black back of Saturn
in a locked enclosure
a harassed devotee
5.
Not much fun—
cold night, asthmatic cough
and lonely Christmas:
no quiet place within
no fresh start for the New Year


TEN  HAIKU:  R.K. SINGH
1.
Potholes
spots of sunshine
wobble
2.
Sudden downpour
noisy trucks at midnight
crowded footbridge
3.
Sipping coffee
at a wayside stall
cockroaches too
4.
The morning sun
fondling with tender fingers
the red roses5.
Chasing each other
in the bylane
two birds
6.
A girl
between the railway tracks
swings her pony tail
7.
Softness of wind
magic in her nearness
sleight of hand
8.
End of festival:
I stop by her haiku
on twitter.com
9.
A teenager
glides past me on roller blades
her long hair flows behind
10.
A toddler
trying to stand up by the pram—
young mother watches
