I am Subir Ningthouja, a middle aged physician. I live in Manipur state of India, at the eastern foot ranges of the Himalayas. I was introduced to haiku through Triveni : World Haiku Utsav on 13th August, 2020 by my dear friend Milan. Since then, I have been swimming in the haiku pond as a novice, whenever I get the time. I have completed Triveni's Gurkulam Programme conceived superbly by Kala Ramesh under the wonderful mentorship of Vandana Parashar. I am inspired and have got lots of help from Kalaji, Vandana, other Triveni seniors, my dear Gurukulam colleagues and Triveni members.

Some of my published work :


Haiku

-----------


waterfall—

a mountain sings

for the sea

(The Heron's Nest, Volume XXIII, Number 2 : June 2021)


fragrance tipsy

night breeze

shreds the petals

(ESUJ-H : June 2021)


Parallel Haiku

------------------------


it's dark tonight

𝐼 𝑎𝑚 𝑠𝑤𝑒𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔

gazing east restlessly

𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑡𝑢𝑛𝑛𝑒𝑙 𝑖𝑠 𝑙𝑜𝑛𝑔

a bird calls

𝑑𝑎𝑦𝑙𝑖𝑔ℎ𝑡 𝑎𝑡 𝑙𝑎𝑠𝑡


(Bloo Outlier Journal, Winter Issue December 2020)


Tanka

-----------


dawn horizon

a flock of red geese

shows, vanishes

shows, vanishes again

between sky and water

(Eucalypt 30, May 2021)


pandemic times

near the water lilies

i rush

to talk away my blues

as they slowly close

(Presence Issue 70, July 2021)


Kyoka

------------


i jump off

the Kiyomizu stage

for nirvana

after a blissful freefall

i get broken legs

(Failed Haiku Volume 6 Issue 63, March 2021)
