Cacophony - Haiku

Image Source : here

1.

Little girl cries
As parents fight loud -
  Insignificant pain.
~~~

2.

Cluttering bangles
On soft dainty arms -
Uncharted symphony.
~~~

3.

Poignant rants 
For once he lay
  Deaf to her pain.
~~~


Written for Haiku Heights . Prompt - Cacophony.


P.S :  I haven't focussed on the prompt per se, rather wrote sets of haiku inspired by the theme. I hope that is allowed. Thank you all for the comments :)

  1. Exquisitely written! I love the tenderness of the second one. The other two made me a bit sad. But that is the power of your composition :)

  3. I like all three but I like the second the best. "uncharted symphony" is romantic and wistful sounding to me.

  4. Looks nice.... I'm not deeply familiar with a haiku'c concept, but it's pretty challenging all the same.

  11. I read it at least 10 times before I realized I have to comment here to let you know how great it was. *takes a bow* it paints a stunning image, emanates an 'uncharted symphony' and yes, the pain and cacophony arrest the reader. amazing. i cannot stop, but i should! *takes a bow again* Keep writing!!!!
