India ...

Haiku in India

Sultry day

summer travel
i feel the heat
by degrees

voyage d'été
je ressens la chaleur
par degrés 

This was composed on my way from Bangalore to Hyderabad (two metro cities in south India) by train - travelling in a non ac sleeper coach - on a sweltering day (heat wave conditions, temp - 45degrees centigrade !)


sleeping bricklayer
a still summer afternoon
disturbed by the breeze

maçon sommeillant
un après-midi d'été tranquille
troublé par la brise  


this summer
hottest ever
yet again !

cet été
plus chaud que jamais
à nouveau !
