A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, Lakshmi Iyer

guest editor: Lakshmi Iyer


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Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's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 !!

International Women's Day


"There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish."

--- Michelle Obama


Where on one side we are celebrating ourselves, there are yet others who are devoid of the regards and the best of basic necessities.

Let's take an oath on this Women’s Day to give happiness to all the women irrespective of caste and creed. Write a poem honouring the women of your lives!



Mother’s Day

his parents adopt

a girl child


--- Lakshmi Iyer, India

Love this, Baisali. I wonder if you would consider mining said to L2 to maintain the SLS shape. Although it might that away another interpretation. Just a suggestion :)
