An attempt at Haiku

Haiku is a Japanese form of Poetry mainly used to describe nature, the uniqueness being its limited syllables.

I remember having a discussion on Haiku with the threesome of my sister, my mom and my wife on a lovely night on the terrace, several years back. We even tried some sample ones, the theme being clouds. I don't remeber the ones I said that day but for some reason I was reminded of Haiku again yesterday and I tried some out again on the same theme.

காலையில் நிலவோடு ஊடல்
மாலையில் வானத்தின் வெள்ளைக் கொடி

வானத்தின் அடங்காத காதல் பித்து
கிழிக்கப்பட்ட தலையனைகள்
