Haiku – Asahi Haikuist Network

How eternally trapped we are in green. The pine in cycles of green and no green, parrot born in green, and less said the better, all that comes with l and mine 😌😇

Thanks to the very kind and encouraging Prof. David McMurray for giving this a home.🙏

Happy Friday to all

I really wish there were green wars where people fought FOR peace and love … and not for envy or power

Prayers for peace everywhere 🙏


Haiku – Asahi Shimbun & Haiku Dialogue

Featured on this week’s Haiku Dialogue

The. Theme for this week was Hanuman carrying the Sanjeevani mountain Vindhya – an art work by Nalini Malani.

The world still reeling under covid , this is for and from all those who lost their loved ones due to lack of medical attention and infrastructure.

Thanks to Pippa Phillips for the wonderful prompt and also the fine commentary on my haiku. Couldn’t have asked for more empathy ♥️

The theme for the current issue of the Asahi haikuist network hosted by the very kind and encouraging David McMurray was maple syrup. I have tried to reflect the similarity between the maple tree from which maple syrup is born and a woman who mothers a child. Thanks to David McMurray for making space for my haiku.

Holding on to poetry like never before in the state the world is now…as if covid war wasn’t enough …

Praying for peace and good health 🙏
