Hello readers,


There are moments of surprise in the poems hidden in between the time and space that breathes and echoes a voice of the universe. Unlock the door to the poem that stirs to startle you for a minute. Walk through them. Question the perception and resonate that with your experience. What makes you pause?



This month is going to be very interesting. Watch out for this space, every alternate day! Thank you, Lakshmi. We are waiting to see the month unfold. _()_

Thanks Keiko, a lovely poem, deep and thoughtful.


from Keiko


“I regularly visit my chiropractor, and one day I noticed this cactus at the entrance had a perfect symmetry. I glanced at it with some envy because my vertebra is somewhat deformed, and needless to say his job is easing/curing pain caused by such deformation of body parts. So the symmetry also amused me with the ideal form of chiropractors when explored. At the same time the perfect symmetry of this cactus brought to my mind some unexplainable calmness and peace at the day’s end…"


Thank you!

Certainly resonates with me as recently having to spend time at the chiropractor - hopefully my symmetry will be restored like the cactus
