Two Haikus

Feelings comatose
Neurons itching to attack
My pen to paper!

 Dreaming of oceans
Foam edged waves calling always
Deleted footprints!

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

      Frank, your name, including the middle and the last names will always be vibrant in all the people you have touched with your friendship

  2. These are great 🙂

  3. I enjoy your haiku!
    I can feel the first one.
    I can see the second one.
    You ignite word pics in my mind and you ignite my senses.
    HUGS!!! 🙂

    I enjoyed these and am so grateful to be so close to the ocean.

      I am sure you are happy to be by the ocean. I was able to get to your blog and read about your husband being in the hospital. I hope he does very good recovery soon. Ruthie, I did not see a box to make comments. I hope I can get all that taken care of easily.
