writeAONG! 12 September

A TUESDAY FEATURE

hosts: Muskaan Ahuja, Lakshmi Iyer

guest editor: Vandana Parashar


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Only the unpublished poems (that are never published on any social media platform/journals/anthologies) posted here for each prompt will be considered for Triveni Haikai India's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

I have always been fascinated with the concept of pivot. To make something swivel around you is no mean feat (pun intended ;) )


Many poets have written haiku where they have masterfully used the middle line as a pivot and thus adding layers to the haiku which otherwise wouldn’t have been possible.

Let’s try and write haiku with a strong pivot and marvel at how the readers will interpret the offering.


To give a taste, I would like to quote the following haiku by Daniel Birnbaum.



funeral

forgotten for a while

the rain


--- Daniel Birnbaum
