Ten Haiku: Ram Krishna Singh

Ram Krishna Singh
yellow  lemons
still hanging after the storm
sunny backyard

dusty leaves
break days of silence
spring’s first rain

making lemon tea
and warm buttery toast-
birds singing outside

inviting
sandal attar from the wrist-
summer evening

evening walk
near the woodlands path:
spiny friend

inhales sun
through the foggy morning
a leaping frog

a quick brush
with snake in the fence:
plucking flowers

fingers push
roots into loamed earth
touch-me-not

warblers fly back
seeing the soft-stepping cats
in the grassy yard

seeking shelter
a leaf falls into
the puddle
