four one-line haiku by Richa Sharma

Clothing the night white jasmines
So many feet cross its eyes the pavement dog
Fading taillights . . . our last meeting
Cuckoo sings over a grave alarm clock


Richa Sharma resides in India and loves writing poetry, especially haiku. Some of her long poems and haiku have been published in a few literary magazines like Better Than Starbucks, Mojave Heart Review, Wales Haiku Journal, Ethos Literary Journal and others.
