My selected haiku poems:(Kaa.Na.Kalyanasundaram)



*even though unequal 

unity in function…

the fingers!




*many coloured flowers

in a single fibre …

the feelings of integrity!





*the tears overflowed

for the little sparrows…

we sold the house!




*though drowned

blossomed as water circles…

stone thrown in the pond!




*to protect the environment

refused to peck

the silent woodpeckers





*sitting on the bird too

you can fly in the sky…

if broad-minded!




*for seeing the horizon

a sweet journey…

towards the home town!




*we are on journey
in the galleon
towards the splendid aim



*the personal language of
the Universe
is silence




*in the yard of the house
a house warming
by little sparrows




*for the jingle of coins
showers of sweet songs 

the street singer.





*while stepping down
refused to show their faces
the mountain steps.




 *even the bitter relations
become sweet jack-fruit-peals
in the shadow of separation




*to see the flowers
always searching in the soil
the roots of a plant




*The bamboo embraced

The winter fire holes…

Lovely flute born!

  1. I enjoyed reading this post.

    One of my favourites is:

    in the yard of the house
    a house warming
    by little sparrows


    Terrific! 😉

    Alan, With Words

  2. My favorite thing about visiting here, aside from reading haiku, is learning about the global nature of haiku. These are lovely, and my favorite is the one about silence as a language.

  3. Really I am very greatful to Mr.Hidenori Hirutha who has introduced me in this great site. I am delay in reply since I gone to my birthplace very recently. This will help me to write more humanitary based haiku poems. Very much thankful to everybody who read my poems and also the feedback given.

    Yours, Kaa.Na.Kalyaanasundaram.
