Haiku Theme : Night


These Haiku trio are written on impromptu thoughts as I sit here trying to write something else but ended up in Haiku writing. It's past midnight and quiet in the residential area where I stay. Usually, I hear the sounds of dogs barking but not tonight. It's quite a cold night because it was drizzling earlier and now only a very faint sound of  some last drops of the rain pat the roof so gently; almost unheard.  The sounds of crickets are in a distance. I look at the sky from the verandah of my room and there are little stars appearing from their hiding places while the moon is still hiding behind a thin curtain of clouds.


i
in the quietness
dreams are made, dreams of today
it was yesterday

ii
starring at the sky
the stars smile, the moon dances
the pain leaves the heart

iii
the sounds of crickets
lullaby a restless heart
on a restless night

    2. I agree with Kleopatra, you described the scene very well and made me feel that I was actually standing there. I like the way you write and I really love this line of yours; "...and now only a very faint sound of some last drops of the rain pat the roof so gently."
