World Haiku Series 2022 (41) Haiku by Goutam Dutta (India)

Haiku by Goutam Dutta


Spinning and revolving

Heralding days and night

In every season.


Between two hemispheres-

Alternately existing

Summer and winter 


Tilt of the earth- 

Wind loses its warmth

Magical hues at sunset


Phases of moon…

Heralding joy

Festivals on earth


Weak crust

Fiery liquid finds outlet

Earth turns red


Dark night sky

Down below

City lights are glittering pearls 


Eager eyes await

Nature’s beauty to mesmerize

Sunrise over snow peaks.


Gust of breeze

Spray of leaves on my head

Autumnal magic


Myriad forms and species


Held in a tenuous balance.  


Flowering tree, vibrant blossom

Hues in sharp contrast..

Adjacent concrete houses.
