haikus as they came out to be

scorching Sun
the cotton bud
parted lips.

**

A sob in throat
forcefully drowned
Newton's Law -- throws a sigh out.

**

tear drops
your face
washed away.

**

curtain drops
I become
herself again.

**

Morning mist:
the dry earth
dreams up a cloud.

**



I don't know if they qualify as haikus yet. Maybe they do, as the 'modern free-form english' ones. Have to do more research: http://www.ahapoetry.com/HAIKU.HTM

Two of Gulzar's (Dev aahe ha manus)books has a good collection of Triveni's

- Pukhraj
- Rat Pashmine Ki

I got then after around hundered rounds of Crossword. Agar aapke shahar ka 'Hindi Sahitya Bhandar' khoj sakti hai to it is worth of the effort.

By the way Javed Akhtar hyanchya 'Tarkash' madle kahi 'Tir' kharokhar jivhari lagtat.

small correction ...
kitab ka nam hai 'Rat Pashmine Ki'
..Gulazar ki kalakritiyo pe aadharit ek vishesh karykram ho raha hai in dino...jiska nam hai 'Baat Pashmine Ki'.. maine Mumbai mai ise dekha... accha hai..lekin Pune mai ab tak iska koi surag nahi mila.
