Haiku Grief

                                                                            While in grief, we know,
                                                                   what is happiness, brightness content ,joy
                                                                             Good times will follow soon.

                                                                              suffering of a beloved
                                                                     fills the heart  with grief, and sorrow,
                                                                              cant be expressed in words.


                                                                       Naked foliage is nature's grief
                                                               dried leaves spread like worn out carpet.
                                                                       Spring will bring new cheer.

 Prompted by Carpe Diem daily Haiku  #  553  Grief



  1. A wonderful response to the prompt - both grief *and* hope. :)

  2. This is a lovely post, I especially like the last haiku of the series! I think you should share it again on the Carpe Diem linky ... when I tried to click to your post I was advised that the post has gotten lost and it's a shame more cannot read it! :-)

    1. Thank you Georgia Koch for such sweet words of appreciation.
      BTW, when I tried to share it again, the linky did not accept it. Thanks for the concern you showed!

  3. You seem to be brilliant at haiku Usha. I'm truly impressed! Is that your first love...of poetry that is? ;) <3
