Haiku--By Asni Amin--Singapore

seamless sky …
petals fell in the tinkling
of chimes

 Simply Haiku, Winter 2013

fragrant breeze …
the shiver of new leaves
in morning dew

smell of rain …
a dream unfolds in the chatter
of sparrows

Simply Haiku, Summer 2013

blue monarch ...
scent of a dream
on your wings

Butterfly Dreams, Feb 2013

la vie en rose …
through bare branches
the song of spring

  1. There is a lovely innocence about your words: each sound and site as if seen and heard for the first time. Very much enjoyed. Best wishes Ralph.

  2. Asni, your Haiku presentation is so lovely and gentle as it defines so beautifully. I love them all and even in the elegance and simplicity, what it defines is so pronounced and punctuates each so eloquently! Beautifully written! Sheri
