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. _()_

Thank you so much for sharing my poem, Lakshmi. This poem is very dear to me. I wrote this when I lost my father 2 years ago. He lived in an Audubon community so his house seemed like a treehouse in the woods, surrounded by wildlife. When we were memorializing him at his home with his remains, a doe and two fawns passed by, and I sat and watched them as I always did them with my father. It was such a strong symbol of the cycle of life. Here I was burying my father, and here were these babies going by, just starting their lives...


Thank you again!

Robin

Nice one, Robin.

Lakshmi and Robin, this haiku is not showing up on the home page.

I don't know the reason.

I've sent an sos to Rohan to help out.

Please bear with me.
