Haiku Poem Collection

Anupam, an English teacher, is extremely sensitive & expresses her emotions in poems. She is pursuing Masters in Psychology at present.



Life looks dark and blank

Living with the same troubles

On long ways.

No new thought or goals

Immersed in the same loop holes,


To kill that blankness

One needs to have fair brightness




Pessimism poisons

Everyone in its contact

With its pangs.

Pessimist corrupts

One with its pathetic thoughts

Like a germ.

Strengthen your immune

Let not the virus affect

Within you.



Loss breaks sturdy hearts

Causing tragic depression


Don’t dwell on assets

As it’s yours today, soon it’ll

Be taken.

Accept the nature

That grows fruit from seed, and then

Fruit leaves seeds.

Such dark themes seem fitting given where we are with this virus right now. A cashier at the supermarket thanked me for being nice today and said a lot of people since the pandemic set in have been really rude. Makes like more depressing for everyone!

I agree with Chitrangada. An excellent haiku collection, Anupam.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on October 10, 2020:

Nice collection of Haikus.

With few words, you have effectively highlighted the impact of depression, pessimism and blankness on life.

Well expressed. Thanks for sharing.
