the daughter turns -
she nurses a life within;
circle continues.

This haiku is for Carpe Diem.

Inspired by this thought , I penned the following lines in my native language. translation below that.

कल तक मेरी बाहों में
सिमट जाती थी जो,
आज उसकी बाहों में
इक नन्ही कलि पले ,
बिटिया कह जिसको
पुकारा उम्र भर
आज उसकी बिटिया से
ये आँगन चेह्के।

she, who filled
my arms with her smiles,
stands today
with her arms filled like wise;
who claimed her place
in my life since birth,
has shared it now
with her own flesh and blood.

This poem is for the wonderful poets I meet each week @ Open Link night .


  1. You filled it in the arms of a nutshell, if I might say so ... Beautiful : )

  2. You're again the first. You've provided us with a lovely haiku in which you've shared the circle of life in a nutshell. Thank you for your kind words.

  4. smiles...i love the verse....the seeing of our children grow to love their own...makes me smile.
