dollops of freshness

amidst dissonant concrete

welcoming the sun

Shared with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

I’ve been tagged by Vishal to take part in the Five Photos Five Stories (FPFS). The challenge works like that: You post a picture for five consecutive days and attach a post to it, fiction, poem or short write-up. It can be anything that suits your taste. I am also tagging my good friend, Kokila on Day Two, as part of the challenge, I will tag a new person on Day Three.

  1. Even with the best images ,It happens rarely.. that I stop my cursor midway to the image only ..letting the words in hiding. It happened with it .. may be the heat here in Bengaluru (yes its hot here) or what, I looooved the image Mani.. bright , beautiful , colourful and yes, with “dollops of freshness.. what an exquisite way to say it !
    then came the words – exquisite .
    then came my tag !!
    I have just seen it so rushing for it though guess I am late 😦
    In between , awesome haiku 🙂


  2. Ufff…daruuuun, Maniparna! Your photograph took me back to my childhood for a moment. There was a Krishnochura in front of our house and I loved to see it in full bloom. The composition is truly “dollops of freshness”! 🙂

  3. PS, look at the lovely message and haiku from Kala Ramesh on facebook! I just had to share it with you. Am so honored.

    Hi, Hamish,

    I loved your analysis of my ‘morning prayers’ haiku.
    Thank you :))

  4. Too good Mani. For the first time I loved your pic more than your words. Usually your words impress me more. But not this time, which is amazing 🙂


  5. THIS is an incredbly inspirational haiku – sublime contrast…exemplified in the picture, which is just magnetic. We all have that freshness within us, or should! This haiku really has an impact and makes me think – you make it deceptvely easy to write about nature as you do – I know, I have tried!
