reaching shore

the mallard’s shadow

regains its feet

Srinivasa Rao Sambangi

Third Place, NZPS International Poetry Competition 2022

Note by the Editor

​Sometimes when we as haiku poets compose haiku there is a certain joy or happiness that we would experience after composing a haiku. The happiness could be due to various factors:

for example being available to register a moment and write a haiku or it could be because we found the right words and also a certain effortlessness involved in composing that haiku! This feeling is the gift we get for the haiku we have composed, and it keeps as going as a haiku poet! For the December Spotlight I wanted haijins to share such haiku!

It really gives a feeling of stability


That ahh moment as the mallard's shadows regains its feet. So simple but so profound.
