Resurrection (Haiku)

by Meena Krish   Jul 7, 2021

By the river side
a gust of wind plays music
wedded trees tango,

Gathering gray clouds
raucously drums up a storm
scent of rain blankets,

Pearl drops keep swelling
heaven cries, birthed earth glistens
green eyes awaken

    I love a Haiku . . . . The only thing better than a well executed one is three all stringed together! :) wonderful!

    A beautiful write, it is something to behold watching life being lived in nature, letting you witness the beautiful creation is special.

    Beautiful couldn't describe the words you have pained here. With the title my mind goes into the poem with reborn or rebirth.

    You set the scene well here with the first stanza, I can imagine standing by a river on a windy day surrounded by trees, so I get the feeling of being in a forest or woods of some kind. I also get the sense that it is spring time as well because I personally imagine spring being windy.

    I like you gave us a whole atmospheric imagery in the first two stanzas and they play off each other well. You went from wind to gray clouds which is a good mixture for rain. Which is something you went with here.

    The last stanza is perfect to wrap up the poem and to give the reader clear thoughts of peace. It is spring and earth and everything armour you is becoming in bloom again. This is where the title truly stands out as well.

    The one personal small nitpick I have is the commas at the end of the first two stanzas, as they interrupt the flow of the poem itself, but I wouldn't change anything else!
