World Haiku Series 2022 (46) Haiku by Hifsa Ashraf (Pakistan)

Haiku by Hifsa Ashraf

peacock flower—
I still am a mother
of the unborn child

#FemKuMag issue 34


autumn leaves
raking to and fro
his last words

Presence, #73


sunlit dewdrops
on the grassy field
child’s first poem

lake’s mist
unfolding my story
the rorschach test

Wales Haiku Journal, Autumn Edition 2022


letting go of
what’s not mine
prairie wind

tinywords, 27 October 2022


foreign sky—
spotting those stars
I named after siblings

Frogpond, Autumn issue 45:3


pink dahlia
enough to count on
this spring

Modern Haiku 53:3


Paris Agreement
the v of seagulls
lost in the fog


summer ends
in the birdbath
white feathers


draught lake lily the last of its colours

The Bamboo Hut, Issue 2, 2022
