New Dawn, Again



a few coins
enough for survival
smile in his eyes

desolate figure
weary of hunger
counts the stars

a shooting star
time for the last wish
he finds none

fake promises
he swallows his tears
makes not a fuss

miserable world
bound by selfishness
he walks alone

scattered dreams
encased in frail bust
too scared to lose

sweet dew drops
hold on to rosy petals
he looks at the bee

brows straight
he searches for nectar
with the bee

time passes
his interest fades
thirst rises

prove to me
that you exist, he shouts
towards the heaven

rain God
lets go of the rein
clouds obey

faith restored
he walks back his path
new dawn, again



This Haiku is shared with The Sunday Whirl.

  1. Beautiful, Amrit! WOW! One of the best I've read so far. Each and every haiku set talks of the truth that prevails in the society and the human needs. It talks about desire, want, faith and so much more.

    Words skillfully used. Wow, again! :D

    'prove to me
