Triveni Haikai India

Walking through some of the back issues of bottle rocket a collection of short verse

bottle rockets is a haiku literary magazine that has been in print for 23 years. At the invitation of Kala Ramesh, I have gone through ten or so back issues and have chosen some haiku, senryu, and short poems that I feel have contributed to the magazine's overall feel. I'm happy to share these poems with the readers of Triveni Haikai India. My only wish is that you will enjoy reading them as much as I have.

—Stanford M. Forrester/sekiro, editor of bottle rockets press

Lively birds, these grackles. We heard their calls in Costa Rica and were mystified by the variable notes. It must have been really hot if a grackle was seeking shade.

I am sure there are more layers here. I wish there was a commentary to accompany this haiku.
