Dark, cloudy dawn breaks,
And on a summer morning?
Arms seek loving arms. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a Haiku poem inspired by my present state of affairs and the weather. It was dark, dense and thick with black clouds and a wind -- harbinger of a rain or sandstorm two days ago. It expresses an ardent, unquencable thirst of mine for being loved -- in return to my love -- by my beloved. It is June and summer is constantly on the rise but two days earlier the sky was overcast and I wished there were some selfless, loving, caring and understanding soul (A woman of course!) to be by my side. As the readers of my poems must have figured it out I am lonely these days and even my own (Mother, brother, sisters and other friends have left me to be on my own. Somewhat triggered on by Thomas Gray's "Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard" and "I Am The Only Being" by Emily Bronte the poem came to me from deep inside and I typed it on my PC so as to reproduce here -- as one and all can see in the lines I have composed. Haiku is a brilliant genre of Japanese poetry and as it happens verses form themselves as can be seen here. Ten years ago I used to collaborate on Haiku's different instances like Renga and Cinquain with well known U.S. poetess -- who, almost like me, would write Haiku collaborations. It is not my intention to boast here. It is to inform my readers. critics and admirers as to how I got into writing Haiku. There are several Haiku poems composed by me and present at this wonderfully managed poetry site -- thanks to Jason Minton -- the owner of this poetry and prose site. I am always happy to be here and jot down the thoughts that assemble in my heart, mind and soul, less for myself but more for other poets and poetesses worldwide. I hope the enjoyers of Haiku poetry like this poem of mine while to others especially those new here. I would be very happy for any feedback, comment or objective and impartial criticism, suggestions and highly valued opinions.Well, I feel that I have explained it all for the benefit of all poets, poetesses and poetry lovers.
