laughALONG! 26 March

A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, Lakshmi Iyer

guest editor: Lakshmi Iyer


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Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's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 !!

We really need a break. Lets talk about humour in haiku. We do come across many such experiences in our day-to-day lives: some are very serious whilst some are very loud. There are some that make us laugh whilst some bring a smile on our face. It is an art to make people laugh. Can you? Just try with your poems here.

--- Kobayashi Issa




bush warbler

a dropping on the rice cake

at the veranda’s edge!


---- Matsuo Basho



*(both the poems are from ‘Haiku in Humour - Susumu Takiguchi ' from The Haiku Foundation)
