triveni spotlight: 17th January 2024

the sound they make

the sound I make

autumn leaves

— Gary Hotham

(En Passant, 1979) 

I’m sure I’m not the only one maintaining a diary of my favourite ku. Unlike the personal diary, it’s an absolute pleasure to share the contents of this diary with everyone. They say that joy is doubled when shared and God knows the world needs more and more of that. 

The haiku and senryu I have chosen aren’t mere observations on the poet’s part. They are a lesson on how to choose and arrange the words to turn a simple observation into poetry. These are the poems which will make you realize there is much more to everything than can be perceived by our senses. A good poem should make you feel things you thought yourself incapable of and surprise you again and again into a sudden awakening and thus to a deeper sense of what it is to be truly alive. I hope that these poems will succeed in doing that.
