triveni spotlight: 21st August 2023

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Kala Ramesh and Vidya Shankar GUEST EDITOR: Arvinder Kaur August 2023



sudden rain looking for some shelter a butterfly enters


Manoj Sharma

Autumn Moon Haiku Journal, Volume 6.2 Spring/Summer 2023



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.

Arvinder Kaur

I feel both L1 and L3 are a surprise, if it was written the other way. Nice!

'sudden rain' and 'a butterfly enters' are surprisal images.

L3 comes as a surprise. Wasn't expecting 'butterfly'.
