Haiku/Senryu--By Pravat Kumar Padhy--India

distant waterfall
her voice murmuring

left behind--
the feather on
the fence

wishing flags--
the wind carries
her emotion

in search of God I search myself

  1. These poems are fine treats for a Friday night!

  2. Loving the remaining feather. Thanks for sharing. Ralph.

  3. Your simple words carry depths within them, Pravat. Lovely!

  4. Pravat,
    I loved these haiku, especially the last one-liner. I think each of us has a little bit of God inside of us, since He is everywhere, always. Welcome to Whispers!
