Red Lights, 2019

#Haiku Happenings #4: Hifsa’s latest #tanka #sequence appears in Red Lights!

My Inner Voice

innocent soul
(child marriage)

teary eyes
filled with kajal
spreading
the dark rituals
on her face

——

her wedding
without guests
on this night
no one witnessed
but the red moon

——
clinking
golden earrings
behind the veil
she takes her vows
without any words

——

this age gap
between the couple
who know
who pretends to be
in a real relationship

——

her long hair
braided with jasmine
in full bloom
her deep pain
without fragrance

Red lights, January issue, 2019
