A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, Lakshmi Iyer

guest editor: Aparna Pathak


Please note: 


Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's monthly journal -- haikuKATHA, each month.


Poets are requested to post poems (haiku/senryu) that adhere to the prompts/exercises given.


Only 1 poem to be posted in 24 hours. Total 2 poems per poet are allowed each week (numbered 1,2). So, revise your poems till 'words obey your call'.


If a poet wants feedback, then the poet must mention 'feedback welcome' below each poem that is being posted.


Responses are usually a mixture of grain and chaff. The poet has to be discerning about what to take for the final version of the poem or the unedited version will be picked up for the journal.


The final version should be on top of the original version for selection.


Poetry is a serious business. Give you best attempt to feature in haikuKATHA !!

One thing that I always try to keep in mind while writing haiku is that it should be about a moment that doesn't take more than a few seconds to experience. We all know that haiku is about  showing a visual and is never an interpretation of an experience.

to place the last piece

of jigsaw

this rare moment in time

when I can see a solution

--- Keitha Keyes


Here is a beautiful poem to inspire you to write yours, that is your own experience from your daily routine.
