A Note:

Thanks for this opportunity to present my selection to the readers and members of Triveni. In my collection for the spotlight feature, I have tried to include some of the seasoned as well as new poets who have begun to make their mark on the haikai scene all over the world. My effort is to bring them into the Triveni fold since some of them are not seen around our different features that are extremely engaging. I have noticed a freshness of images in their poems that are minimalist at times and others have an extremely interesting turn of phrase.

I hope you enjoy the read. I am looking forward to your feedback.

This is excellent, Arvinder.

Johannes Vermeer was a Dutch Baroque Period painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life. He is considered one of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age along with Rembrandt.Wikipedia


John has written this very well indeed!
