triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Teji Sethi and Kala Ramesh guest editor: Sanjuktaa Asopa
Ah, if I turn around
that one who passes by
is nothing but mist
(From the essay Three Moments of Japanese Literature by Octavio Paz, 1957, Terebess Asia Online)
Editor's Note: The theme is ' The Ephemeral'. My endeavour here is to feature the poems that portray the ephemerality of things and emotions.
