triveni spotlight : 27 april

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Teji Sethi and Kala Ramesh guest editor: Sanjuktaa Asopa

I have no need

to go seeking gods,

they may be there, somewhere

but here, now, the darkling beetle

is crossing the path


-- Joy McCall


(A Hundred Gourds, June 2016)


Editor's Note: The theme is ' The Ephemeral'. My endeavour here is to feature the poems that portray the ephemerality of things and emotions.

In all scriptures it is said that GOD is everywhere as far as the conscience wants to be with Him. If I am near the Lord will be near, if I am far the Lord will be far away. Thank you dear Sanjuktaa2003 for sharing nicely about reminding steps.

best regards 🌿

Who else but Joy McCall could have spoken about the here and now in this way?


She says she started writing at the age of 9 and has been at it for almost 70 years. An extremely warm and generous person from what little I could have known of her, Joy has had 'too many' published books than she can keep track of and I intend to seek out and read as many as I can of them, because she can take tanka to another plane altogether.


Somehow, on some level, I connect with this tanka so deeply and probably that's why I selected this one to represent my ephemeral.
