Like Haiku 1. Warm sunshine of Aghon Intoxication of Mahua The Boiragi lost his path. 2. The setting sun of spring While trying to catch With a hooked pole I woke up. 3. The monk picked up The chrysanthemums Dropped off in the rain. 4. The betel creeper climbs Twisting round the betel nut tree It's like the maiden who makes The home and the river ghat beautiful. 5. It's winter The night got lost in the river Sakuntala got lost in the ring.
