Haiku*

haiku is hard
five three five it goes
my mind runs

summer here comes
hot days force boxer shorts
ice cream melts

flies drop dead
water hisses flowers concieve for
summer goes then

hunger comes here
somalia is far far away
maggi is repetitive

she sells shells
on the sea shore see
waves drown woman

cherry blossoms crowd
white lilies float leaves green
i step on cowdung

morning brings sunrays
sleep infernally draws closer inwards
buzz not alarm

i master haiku
years work in a day
poisonous mind whirring

*haiku
A Japanese form of poetry, consisting of non-rhyming words, in odd numbers.

spring is here!!
spring is here!!

cold nights no more
snow storms no more
winter is long gone
the sun is again born!!

soon it'll be summer
clothes will get shorter
we'll bless the sun
but alas! no more fun
heat shall cause burn!
