Affection Haiku

kiss of the sunlight

the rose bushes turn scarlet

nature’s affection

~

nature’s affection

birds lunging to horizon

gentle blowing wind

~

And inspired from Kristjaan’s love haiku,

shadows of the night

hands held under the black cloak

hiding affection

~

a love is lovely

let it fly high with free wings

accept affection

Baby Piano: A 100 Word Story

“I can’t forget how we grew up together and then got separated. And today, it is a coincidence that we could meet.”

“It is indeed.” He gave her a brilliant smile.

“You still smile the same,” she shyly commented.

“And you are still the same.”

They shared a quick kiss which was delayed for years.

“And you remember when you visited me at 1 in the night and tried to hide inside my baby piano when my parents came up hearing your loud voice?”

“Yes. And I remember why I visited you.”

They held hands, past memories flooding their minds.

Boy’s Day Haiku

kintaro doll up

held in palms of a young boy

mochi in the mouth

.

riding on the bear

stringing the carp in the air

the dragon breathes fire

* Submission for Carpe Diem # 213 Prompt. It is particularly based on the celebration of Boys’ day In Japan. Since I have no knowledge of the festival, I read through the information available along with the declaration of the challenge and the one available on wikipedia and on the basis of that, I have created these two haiku. I apologize in advance if I have mistaken in understanding the essence of the festival in any way.
