Summer 2024: Shikha S. Lamba

Haiku
1. A Gentle Morning

A tranquil morning, 
a thousand reasons to glow
when kissed by the sun.

2. Blossom

Soft folds, gentle skin,
a hesitant blossom holds
her delicate breath.

3. Different Points of View

Different points of
view, a conversation stalled, 
parched throats look away.

Micro Poem
4. Frangipani Blooms

Frangipani blooms
against blue skies. 
Sorrow disintegrates
into fine sand.
