garland of lilies lie
withering and heavy on your bosom-
dry taste of summer breeze
little spider stalks
gingerly on its own web-
time seeps through unnoticed
breeze blows dry dead lilies
black strands of broken web unstuck-
time moves riding your sigh

mon ami, 1st attempt at haiku :)

da, how do you manage to keep the form and verse in rhythm?

i read up a bit on haiku, forgot what it was :-)
can sighs be similar to dead lilies?

haiku reminds me of a classical raga that revisits its tune with mischief and "adaah" (style...) - Like a hem in a saree...:-)
