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
Everyone in its contact
With its pangs.
One with its pathetic thoughts
Like a germ.
Strengthen your immune
Let not the virus affect
Loss breaks sturdy hearts
Causing tragic depression
Don’t dwell on assets
As it’s yours today, soon it’ll
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.
