A TUESDAY FEATURE

host: Muskaan Ahuja

guest editor: Vidya Venkatramani


“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a

different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of

paying attention to this miracle.”


– Paulo Coelho


‘Boring’ is not a word in a haijin’s vocabulary. Tell us about the time when found a ‘miracle’ in your familiar surroundings--- in your garden, on your doorstep or in your street.

Mushrooms that sprout after a shower, a strange wild flower by the pavement, a

rainbow – the list is endless.


So share your haiku or tanka celebrating such a ‘miracle’ moment.



after the rain

in each hanging droplet

the world upside down



--- Kashinath Karmakar

(From Naad Anunaad)
