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 Post only your unpublished, original poems.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.


The first one is here:




plumerias

a conch shell pierces

the morning mist


Published in The Heron’s Nest, September 2016


The poet notes that there is something about frangipani flowers—white, pure, fragrant. Especially blossoming in the courtyard of a temple.


Do you agree? What else these blossoms kindle in you? Bring it out.

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

ANNOUNCEMENT


Dear Trivenians,

We are having an interesting discussion on one-sentence (ichibitsu jitate) haiku over at the Spotlight blog. I am eager to hear what the many gifted haikai poets on this forum have to say about this controversial issue. Please join in and register your thoughts.
