April Haiku Month, Day 1: Ascent


(ascent of nature)

a mere seed rules earth

grows slow and strong, then conquers.

ascends throne of sky . . .

~ ~ ~

(ascent of a bird)

mother bird looks down

the hatchlings need nourishment.

a flight into dawn . . .

~ ~ ~

(ascent of a woman)

abused heart

lets out battle cry.

blazing sword . . .

~ ~ ~

(ascent of a man)

infinite power

to exploit; yet he stands back.

wields humility . . .

~ ~ ~

This post is submitted at Haiku Heights for Day 1 prompt – Ascent. This post is also a part of my NaPoWriMo 2013 journey, , my first. I am also trying to take up the A-to-Z Blogging challenge which requires bloggers to write a post everyday during all April. I will try to write separate posts for NaPoWriMo and A-to-Z Blogging Challenge IF possible. I sure want to.

I am going to share your everyday Haiku on my Facebook Page. Keep tabs on it too.

Thank you all for reading my haiku. I’ll be reading yours too, and I enjoy each one of your haiku. Your comments always help me improve and motivate myself to keep going.

Thank you and keep writing!

    1. It is so humbling to hear such kind words from you, Rameshji. Thank you very much. I still remember you guiding me through my early days of Haiku last year. I am very grateful for your help. And the haiku journey with you was and is always a beautiful and fantastic experience for me.

  1. Very cool, I like your AtoZ theme. I like how you have several haikus for your theme as well, it’s so diverse. Keep up the good work!
