Each passing moment,
reminds me of life not lived,
hope remains intact.

P.S. - First time tried my hands on traditional Japanese form of poetry 'Haiku'. Its not that easy as it seems because you have to take care of the number of syllables in each of the three lines. No problem if it doesn't rhyme.

P.P.S. - I think my first attempt on this genre is not up to the mark (I also had to take help of syllable counter). But, yes, trying is always good.

hi Deepak :) welcome to Haiku Heights, and thanks for writing..

your take is quite good too.. maybe the reason you feel it not up to mark is that there is no full stop to it? it feels like a continuation is needed. :)
maybe a small change might make it better.

Each passing moment
It reminds of life not lived
Yet hope stays intact

I found your haiku quite soothing and so full of hope. Personally, I do not write my haiku with counting syllables, just my writing style.

Sometimes rules are hard to obey, but I think the haiku is very good for discipline. It will be a long time before I feel happy with mine.

Deepak said...

@ rinkly: yeah, rules are hard to obey. But they're not meant to be broken always :)
