My senryu was published in the December 2016 Issue (No. 12) of Failed Haiku a Journal of English Senryu, which has lots of lovely works by great poets all over.

Feel like being a bit worldly and political today.🙂

Haiku Rhapsodies – Another 5 Star Review!

Tags

, , , ,

Khaya Ronkainen had this to say about my debut haiku collection, Haiku Rhapsodies, after purchasing a copy from Amazon. Thank you, Khaya. Very much appreciated my dear.🙂

REVIEWhttps://readinpleasure.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/83035-haiku2brhapsodies.jpg?w=138&h=204

A superb collection of simple yet intense verses that can be read in one breath, and some more. The author weaves with words, and brings about vivid and thought-provoking images. Brevity of a poem focusing on a particular moment communicates a raw thought, yet is beautiful and offers deep insight. In all, this is a joyous and an enlightening read. I highly recommend it.

My Jubilee

Tags

, , , ,

My Jubilee

on the eve and threshold

of the most important day of my life,

I look back on my forty-nine years

whispering Jasmine-flavoured words

of thanks to my Maker.

For thus far He has brought me.

2

the welcome chirp of birds to rouse

the slow stream of rays through dawn

the heady scents of blooms to brighten

even in the almost silent zzzzinnnng of waters

a rush of lullaby to still my fevered spirit

I see your might

3

ever gently, pushing, urging, calming,

cradling, nurturing, molding

mere clay to refine

I am what you have made me

I am because You are

Alpha and Omega

4

I sing because I am happy

I sing because I am free

I sing because your face has shone upon me

not for forty nine years

but for fifty years

I sing my Jubilee!
