Air raid siren
Mum carries 1-year-old Afsana and screams at Afzal
“Get ready, Afzal”
“My shoes don’t match,” cries the little boy
Mortar shelling starts in 3… 2… 1…

Shingeki no Kyojin Haiku and Senryu (Anime Special)

dawn of humanity
Mikasa and Eren stands
on the Wall Rose.
just don’t die
Mikasa to Eren
we will make these Titans, our bitch!

Shingeki no Kyojin or Attack on Titan is my favourite anime and Mikasa, Armin and Eren are these lovable character from the series. The song “utsukushiki zankoku na sekai” is my current favourite song.

For Carpe Diem Haiku.

Carpe Diem “Make the Haiku Complete” #4, “rising up to heaven?”

is it not the scent of plum-blossoms
rising up to heaven?

The moony moon
is it not the scent of plum-blossoms
rising up to heaven?

At Carpe Diem Haiku, Kristjaan challenged us to write the first line of this lovely haiku written by one of the haiku masters.
Note: Kristjaan messaged me yesterday and told me that they all miss me at Carpe Diem Haiku. I must not disappear now. And I will try my best, Kristjaan.

Senryu for Kristjaan

A nurse named Kristjaan
with his kind words
revived a dead poet
