on the wings of words
glistening with halcyon hope
my new book is here!
When I stumbled upon haiku – a Japanese form of poetry, I scoffed it away, thinking it to be too short and easy to write. My hubris got a setback when I was challenged to write it! My earlier efforts show how I struggled with the syllables that could convey a meaningful message. Slowly I discovered this art form, which I revere now. I’ve taken some liberties with the rules though.
The poetry in this collection is not traditional haiku and tanka but inspired from them. This collection focuses on micro-poetry, inspired from haiku, senryu, tanka and acrostic poems. Brevity and discipline is the hallmark of these poems.
I would like to express my gratitude to Colleen M Chesebro for reading an ARC and extending her invaluable guidance about these forms of poetry.

sun spreads divine gold
creates fusion of colors
serrated peaks kiss
a demure dawn is smiling
scattering some cheer
dusk trots complacently
knocks supremacy of the sun
smiles of stars follow
full moon still lingers
trees delight in divine light
