haiku/senryu--By Arvinder Kaur--India

as if
the unknown is all mine -
train window
holding mist
by the leash -
morning walk
ceasefire -
a soldier comes home
wrapped in moonlight
bean stalks -
height marks fade
in our childhood room
kitchen gossip -
the sound of her knife
on the chopping board
meteor shower -
my mother's first valentine
after father died
