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.

I love it, Billie.

Very atmospheric.


Such a moving poem; Kaur manages to squeeze the pathos of loss from a child's toy, yet leaves just the right amount of Ma for us readers to dream on. Thanks for posting this one, Namratha. I'm looking forward to your selections this month.
