My wonderless tread,
o'er numbers shrew on beach of life
torn wounded feet!

Not exactly my first Haiku, I got to know about it many years ago, and refreshed when prats made a haiku of my post about Rain. But  before I didn't have even the slightest idea of syllabus, Thank you Prats.

Now coming to the piece. I am an accountant to be and it is 'posed to mean that I have figures ubiquitously litterling the coast of my life!


  1. too apt for an accountant to be ;)

    But a little bit pessimist don't you see... cmon thats your profession, cheer up ;) , lotsa numbers to crunch and lotsa numbers to punch...hehehehe...

    Reading your poetic view of an accountants journey... i could think of nothing but Robert frost's poem.. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

  2. Voila those are my fave lines king...

    and ya mr. accountant to be..i think i can relate to your post..may be because we share the same fate ..:P :P
