Yearning : Haiku







                                                                                  necks arched, poised for flight
                                                                                     with wings of white marble yet
                                                                                     the soul is free... light


                                                                                    perched atop high walls
                                                                                    ready to soar in blue skies
                                                                                    yearns heart caged in stone

  3. The ultimate lines in both haiku are overwhelming..aapne pattharon mein jaan daal di! Who can understand and appreciate better than a 'patthar' itself/himself? I loved them:) :) Thank you Kokila for writing these :):)

  4. "Yearns heart caged in stone" beautifully portrays the plight of mute stones. You have those keen ears which could sense beating hearts in flinty rocks. Beautiful indeed. :)

  5. How well you relate Kokila!
    I just knew the history of it, took the pictures and came away. To relate to it poetically is incredible.

    1. Exactly! Considering her heart to be too stunned to feel anything except being stuck at that one desire, that one moment where it stopped and turned in to a stone! And like the decorations of these cranes, she too was honoured as one of the Pratah smarneeya panch kanyah!
