A Desperate Tree – Haiku – A Poem by Anita Bacha

a desperate tree 

in night’s torrential rain 

dripping old leaves fall

Good morning, my dear friends.

Mauritius is living the worst torrential rains and flooding after a long time, so dear ones stay home, stay safe.

Love you

Author: Anita Bacha

Creative and inspirational writer of stories, poetry, and haikus I am also an addictive reader of novels, poetry, haiku, and children's storybooks. I am the author of SOUL POETRY a book of inspirational poems, verses, and quotes published by Partridge India (2015) The Maker of Miracles (2006) published in the USA by Dorrance Publishing and My Journey with God (2008) published under the banner of Sai Towers, India is the narration about my spiritual journey. My new poetry book INK Echo of life and love published by Éditions de L’Ocean Indien (2019) in Mauritius, my birth country is a collection of love poems extolling the feelings and desires of women. The Princess and the Crow is my first storybook for children, released by Austin Macauley Publishers London in March 2019. Two years later, I was inspired to write and published two other books - WAKASHIO, a storybook for children, and PINK MOON - AN ANTHOLOGY OF HAIKU POEMS. I love to write. I guess my writing has a special cliché of island 🌴 life, natural, unpretentious, and full of beauty.

    1. Thank you, my dear friend. Glad that you are here with us in the midst of the storm. An elderly of 90 fell and drowned in a flooded river yesterday. More torrential rains and flooding expected tonight.

    1. Thank you so much for dropping in,Nan and, for liking my ku. I am inspired by Gabi Greve’s rain typhoon-
      heavy rain
      pounds Japan again –
      typhoon Man-Yi
      The term‘torrential rains’ itself is not a kigo but, rain is. In Mauritius we have cyclones and torrential rains which are similar to the Japanese typhoon.
      Thank you once more,Nan. I am very much concerned about the elderly,being one myself.
      Happy Start of the week.


      1. Anita,
        Stay safe, and try to stay dry. As the singing group, We Might Be Giants, says in the lyrics of one of their song, “I am getting older, and now I am even older….” (and it goes on from there). I am in the elderly category myself. Peace, Nan
