laughALONG! 14 May

A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, K.Ramesh

guest editor: Milan Rajkumar


Please note: 


Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's monthly journal -- haikuKATHA, each month.


Poets are requested to post poems (haiku/senryu) that adhere to the prompts/exercises given.


Only 1 poem to be posted in 24 hours. Total 2 poems per poet are allowed each week (numbered 1,2). So, revise your poems till 'words obey your call'.


If a poet wants feedback, then the poet must mention 'feedback welcome' below each poem that is being posted.


Responses are usually a mixture of grain and chaff. The poet has to be discerning about what to take for the final version of the poem or the unedited version will be picked up for the journal.


The final version should be on top of the original version for selection.


Poetry is a serious business. Give you best attempt to feature in haikuKATHA !!

.....................................................................................................................................


On certain occasions, haiku possess a unique quality that provoke laughter or, at the very least, a gentle smile. Let us cherish those occasions, for they offer us a precious gift – the ability to laugh at ourselves and find solace in the shared human experience.

Good one, Baisali. The text speak can be indecipherable at times.
