Indian Summer

 

         I

        Summer storm

            Green drops of mangoes

        Children rush

 

            II

        First summer full moon

            Spreads waves of love all around

        The Buddha wakes up

 

             III

      Silent birds of noon

           Seek fig leaves to rest under

      I dream of monsoon

 *It is believed that Gautama Buddha was born on the day of first summer full moon

  1. I like how you carried imagery that pertains to water from haiku to haiku. It also flowed prettily from day to night and from mortal to divine and back to earthly considerations.

  2. Sigh.. ❤ ❤ oh Sumana this is absolutely stunning.. both in words and image 😀 especially adore "Silent birds of noon, seek fig leaves to rest under, I dream of monsoon." Beautifully rendered. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤ ❤

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  3. One of the best things about summer can be the downpours which drench the heat and soothe – perhaps that is like the welcome arrival of a divine being – or sense of well being?

  4. Interesting to learn that Gautama Buddha was born on the first day of the full moon…..and it is good to think of the day as one when waves of love abound!

  5. lovely haiku! the first one brings back memories of childhood, and the third one reminds me of the mynahs at my workplace resting in the shade of trees during noon. 🙂

  6. Wonderful depiction of Indian summer! And the third stanza is masterly. I do enjoy your poetry, Sumana.
    The title also reminds me of James Cameron’s novel with the same title; a delightful read. 🙂

  7. No wonder I looked up at that Strawberry moon and felt time and space expand–just for a special moment I was everywhere. Love this.

Thank You :)
