writeALONG! 7 May

A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, K.Ramesh

guest editor: Milan Rajkumar


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Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's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

We all know that senryu poems are about human nature. They often use satire and wit to emphasize the irony and humour of everyday life. But a more serious side of senryu encompasses a wide range of human experiences, including misfortunes and hardships.

brimful garbage dump

I invite you all to write poems about the raw reality of our existence found within life's complexities.
