the toddler’s grip

tightens on my breast

As the world gets increasingly loud, not just aurally but visually as well (especially with the proliferation of technology and capitalisation of attention), I focus my selections around ‘intimacies’. Moments of quietude that involve a reckoning with intimacy in its various forms and along varied axes: with the self, with others, with material objects, with places, with thoughts and values, with the environment around us. To be intimate is to acknowledge the depth of silence, to allow it to settle into the self, and sometimes even to be overwhelmed by it. The ku I have chosen for this month explore what it means to be intimate in different ways.

Such a poignant ku by Arvinder Kaur. Such tenderness in the ku. It tells us about the lasting love, tenderness and togetherness set against a warzone backdrop.


I also appreciate iqra's thoughts about "Moments of quietude".


Thank you Iqra and Arvinder Kaur.

Thank you Iqra , your opening comment is thought-provoking, and I look forward to reading your selections this month and exploring the ways in which poets are “reckoning with intimacy”, a fabulous phrase that will stick with me.
