Haiku Anthology by Jessy Bissal

midnight walk …
my daughter asks me
to sing a spring song

way to school …
collecting strawberries
in my lunch box

trimester scan …
sticking butterflies
on to the cot

longest day …
the flowers on her grave
further dries

homeless …
in heavy downpour
a beehive sinks

canopy walk …
collecting in my basket
these fireflies

at every turn
the moon reaches before me …
walking uphill

with him
in his coffin…
scent of jasmine

in loneliness
reading the epitaph
in reverse

siesta …
at her every step
clink of anklets

homesickness …
sitting on a bench
with my doll

me and him
a cashmere cardigan
