Haiku, senryu and haiga/shahai (photo haiku) posted here on this thread will be picked up for Triveni Haikai India's monthly journal - haikuKATHA. At the moment we are not looking at found poetry. ..................................................................................................... For some more exciting news! CHECK THESE FORUMS ... Tanka, kyoka and tanka-prose to be posted on TANKA TAKE HOME and Haibun to be posted on THE HAIBUN GALLERY It will help you tremendously if you learn to comment on 'triveni spotlight' 'open sky :: SAMVAAD' and 'thinkALONG' Such good poems are posted. ........................................................................................................ The poems you post will also be considered for the haikuKATHA Monthly Journal each month. Due to the sudden increase in the activity, here are some quick guidelines, for HAIKUsutradhar:

1. Just ONE poem per day/ in 24 hours.

2. For each poem you share, please comment on ONE other poem which isn't yours!

3. Post only your unpublished, original poems.

4. If poets have NOT ASKED for FEEDBACK, please don't give. _()_

Poems previously published on your webpage or social media will be accepted.

Poems previously published in peer-reviewed or edited journals or anthologies as well as contest winners that were published elsewhere as such, will not be accepted.


4. IMPORTANT: if any member provides feedback on the poem in the comment section, the poet must decide on the final version and post it on top of the original version.


Or else the original unedited version on your thread will be picked up by us.


On your comment thread, you need to post your revised final version (if you have one!)


Edited version: Your final version of the poem goes first, so it will be easy for our team to consider that for the haikuKATHA journal.

Original version: Your first version of the poem remains - under your final version. The way it is shown here.

The Prompt


This month, Yesha gives us some beautiful pictures and her own verses to ponder and muse.


We bring you the second one:



sunset point

the silence punctuated

by phone alerts


The poet says: Rediscovering the beauty of each sunset is humbling. Inspite of our busy, important lives, we are nothing but a speck in the vastness of the universe.


We agree that there is something surreal about sunset, the sky spreads a rich carpet sometimes a monotoned crimson that seems to rule the world at that moment.


We all have written about sunset sometime or the other and yet there is always something new to find and discover. Maybe you would like to follow the cue set the poet, spend sometime watching the sun as it sets, what it takes and leaves behind; just some time when you are returning from work or you may plan a walk around that time or simply sip a tea and spot a contrast that you never have, before! A contrast that would turn into a jux and a breathtaking haiku.


Share your verse with us and some of them may find a home in haikuKATHA! ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬
