Short poems-Sijos, Haiku and Senryu on different topics to read and enjoy.

Haiku-Colors of nature and Senryu-Coffee wakes you up

Dull seeds planted and
Fed achromatic water,
Gave out colored blooms.

aroma and taste-
Kicks you out of sleep and dreams

Sijo-A Talisman - Polar bear’s tooth

To cross a forest full of bears, I held a polar bear's tooth
Whether it saved me from a brown bear I never knew but my
Superstition killed a poor polar bear in the Arctic.

Sijo-Trip to zoo

We were excited to go to the new zoo where they reared
Many different species of animals and birds till we
Saw the sorry and tired look that the inmates gave us.

Sijo-Gecko’s defense

I always thought a lizard was a harmless creature till one day
It shed its tail which wriggled alive when caught by a cat
Nature had given all creations its own power of defense
