World Haiku Series 2020 (73) Haiku by Mu. Murugesh 

Lake filled with 
rain water 
frog's noise doesn't stop


Single droplet 
at the tip of the leaf
Lizard sticking out its tongue


Heart breaking 
highway travel
snails in the rainy night


Turned off the light
blowing by mouth
heat of the light on the lips


Noisy cries of children
drunken dad enters the yard
silence spread suddenly


Mum's photo on the rusty nail
swings in the blowing wind
Smell of incense stick remains


Huge crowd in the fish market
Knowing the price
pricks as a thorn


Worn out sandals
along with the baby
both sits on the mom's waist


Rain strings
notify the
tears in the roof


Baby's kiss
suddenly moistened
the dried lips
