Haiku--By Arvinder Kaur--India

tree swing -
in and out of sunshine
my outstretched toes
_______________

smoke drifts
from the incense stick-
my wayward thoughts
_______________

vacant desk...
the expanse of sunlight
uninterrupted
_______________

waterfall...
a distant echo
of her anklets
_______________
