Life is beautiful
when you enter another
and become one
in each other

Their minds

hallowed in the borrowed sun

joyous in hate

celebrate emptiness

of the pimp's asshole

May End

end of May--

scorching heat follows

rain and hail

before iftaar this friday

prayer promises bliss

Haiku composed in Gurdaspur

summer afternoon
on the train to Amritsar
squirrels frisk near track

on a late running train
no haiku thought

shooing away
beggars and stray animals
roadside bouquinist

Haiku Universe carries my haiku

 Haikuniverse of April 5, 2019 carries my haiku :

two women argue

over price and weight of fish:

the hapless huckster

Hidden from the eyes of others
I was made in secret
but can’t remember my birth 

from foetus in the womb
to severing of the cord
erased the memory 

now rootless in the valley
fading sensations of years
pierce the darkling wings of
world wide web that blob my being
twisted and tangled, brushed 

away like a fly, hatemongers
hashtag my creation
pirouetting platitudes
