A TUESDAY FEATURE

“Love”- the giving heart!


“The season of clouds, a pitcher of wine

Roses, a rose garden- and you”


--- Mir Taqi Mir


A loving heart is an asset. It can be love for self, another person,

environment, work, music, art, nature- anything! A touch of love

adds magic to what you do. Nowadays that love ends in an

emoticon without the feeling.


“If you have much,

give your wealth

If you have little

give of your heart.”


--- Arabic Proverb


Today let’s pick up the phone and call a long-lost friend, or take

time out to share a few giggles with our children, sit and speak to

an elder at home or spend quality time with anybody whom we feel

has not been given time by us!


Easing in

her slender forearm

for his pillow


--- Matsuo Bashō



Share your haiku about that moment! Let the love flow!

One of my favorite Basho poems. Not as well-know as others, but one of his most tender. Thanks for posting this one.

thunderclap!

Love the humor of this off-beat image. Minor editing suggestion:


thunderclap!

the night sky pees

through a thousand holes


Centering sort of suggests a hovering rain cloud; "pees" is more active; L3 needs the article. Of course, these are suggestions only.

Your first poem is perfect as is, IMO. L3 hangs there like the unsettling words do; like we do while standing vigil. <sigh>

Revised, thank you @Muskaan Ahuja

#2. lingering touch...

crimson petal surrender

for her roots


Revised, thank you @Firdaus Parvez

#2. lingering touch...

crimson petal surrender

to quench earth


Should I add the word 'raindrop' to L3?


Original:

#2. lingering touch

crimson cheek shy away

from a memory
