Nature Haiku of Shahid:

see nature’s mirror!
twilight watches it’s own face
still water looks back

dung beetle working
rolling rolling the soil out
then a bath in dew

faithfully forever
turning Turning- clay becomes pot
love’s action through water

flowers seek the light
you too bend- grow that way, dear !.
the world gropes blindly

horses in water
breaking through the bright shallows
ghosts across the sky

beauty is growing
blossoms push off the dead leaves
from Love’s soil fragrant blooms

hidden innocence
at the core of the red flower
tasting her beauty

soft petals closing
blue to violet twilight sky
time for evening prayer

lights in the night mist
shining out of the darkness
bright eyes of the cat

go towards the light
stick to security from
the world’s stifling cage

plant truth in your heart
let your innocence flower
a rare worthy bloom

turn your eyes towards
the goals you truly value
gather your courage

doves fly in the air
spreading peace in the world’s sky
soul’s true submission

dainty blooms sprouting
signaling the dawn of Spring
flowers in her hair

bounty wheat crops grow
beside a crystalline lake
naked sky witness.

in a our troubled time
love has found a way forward
two birds catch the wind

an ocean of sand
ebb-tide awaiting the sea
the shell to my ear

from the watery waves
through the seven colors
the birds are rising
