triveni spotlight: 01 February 2024

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Vidya Shankar and Teji Sethi GUEST EDITOR: Namratha Varadharajan 01 February 2024

like a ripple

that chases the slightest caress

of the breeze —

is that how you want me

to follow you?


Ono no Komachi

First published in The Ink Dark Moon, translated by Jane Hirshfield with Mariko Aratani

My theme is haikai poems from books I have read and enjoyed and want to share with the Triveni family. Each poem is from a different book and there are a range of subjects. Hope you and Triveni visitors enjoy the poems.

drawing conclusions

at the waterfall edge

ripples of light

find their way through

the slippery trail
