With 160 Characters , Two Poems and An Award

I was wondering what to write for Sunday 160.As usual ,it was raining outside and the weather was a nice time to write poems for a poeter like me.I got two ideas-rain and tears,dark and cold.I came up with two poems each one counting up to 160 characters including spaces.Yes,the weather was right to pin down more poems.I posted them.I merged in two photos together as one so that you may get an idea of my two poems.With the picture and the poem, from left to right,from the tree to the boy ..both talk their feelings out...

In Autumn
gulping in the dark night
waiting for a better tomorrow
for my answer
I pray
God never let me down
closed my eyes
drops of tears
fall upon the wet ground
as withered leaves


Stood staring out of the window
Standing alone in the cold
Gulping in the dark night
Waiting for a better tomorrow
I prayed
God never let me down
closed my eyes
drops of tears
fall upon the floor
writing Believe!

  7. Thoughts of tomorrow are what get us through. I love the teardrops writing the word believe - fantastic! It is impressive writing entire poems with 160 characters. I seem to need a tome!

  10. Dear Umamahashwari.. first of all congratulations.. for the award.
    Second, how I wish you would have chosen 140 Characters so that it could have been perfect for the Twitter to spread across.
    Finally I liked both of them so much... Great writing and specially since I love haiku's and short verses... Thanks for sharing...

  15. hope is something that keeps everyone going in life .. without hope one dosnt live a life .. but merely exists for the sake ....

    always keep your hopes alive ... no matter what ...

    Great poems .. love the way you just changed the whole set keeping alive the same emotion ...

    keep writing ...
