thinkALONG! 28 May

A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, K.Ramesh

guest editor: Milan Rajkumar


Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's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

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


"Of all the poetic forms I find haiku the most appealing ...one can share moments of absolute awareness, of truth, of images, of depths and heights of the spirit which transcend time, place and cultures and continents -- bringing about universal peace and understanding. I believe that if more people turn to writing haiku, there would be more joy and less strife in our lives, in our world. "

— Dr. Angelee Deodhar (1947–2018)

my right one


             — Angelee Deodhar



I extend my invitation to you to write haiku that possess the ability to generate a ripple effect of joy and harmony in both our lives and the world.

Good one. Reminds me of Around the World in Eighty Days. The Jules Verne novel about Phileas Fogg.
