Old Age Haiku

story of a life

narrated by zig-zag lines

engraving the skin

~

remaining silent

words can never speak of it

life at its twilight

P.s.- Written in response of VisDare Challenge. I composed a story earlier, keeping in mind the image of the prompt but forgetting to consider the word.. so I ended up creating a tale with an entirely another theme and I tried but couldn’t include the significance of the word “engraved” into it. So, I have written these two haiku inspiring from the photograph. Again, the second haiku is devoid of the main word or any of its synonymous counterpart. I apologize for that.

Green Notes

It is all about those green notes

for which a person is ready to kill

and to be killed

Here we have them in multiple colors

but their feature is the same

they can bring you food

but along with pain

It is all about those green notes

which are multicolored here

but their curse remaining the same.
