Magical Forest - Haiku

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

In the forest

In the forest

I wrote these haiku all the while thinking about the mysteries of the forest.

The forest is a magical place and has many secrets cleverly concealed from the human eye. I guess we can all imagine how the forest would be if we can truly see and feel the magic!!


silver moonlight stream

fireflies lighted dancing glow

sleeping flowers rise


twittering birds sing

lifting spirits of Dryads

nymphs casting magic


sighing boughs bend down

bearing leaves, flowers, and fruits

not minding the weight


in magical land

where dreams and wishes come true

blessed by fairies


sun rays filter through

dancing patterns come alive

nature enacting

Nithya, haiku is such a wonderful form of poetry. Though it looks very simple but to portray the world,as it is, is really a very tough task. You have beautifully brought a real forest to our eyes through this very fantastic poem.
