Thank you very much, Lakshmi. Glad to know that you liked the commentary. I don't have experience of writing commentaries before! However, I enjoyed writing this one.

It helped me stay with the haiku for a longer time and that a lot of difference!

Lovely first issue. Congratulations to all of the poets. I like it that you haven't crowded the page with text. Just 2 or 3 poems per page with lots of white space around them which shows them off beautifully.
