winter festival
my role is to
write verses

flying back north
under a clear sky
a flock of geese

Wishes for a happy and fruitful gathering!

Thanks to each and every one of you here for your kind wishes. The days of the COUNTDOWN to ANANDA has slipped into hours now!!

There is excitement and trepidation in my mind, longing for the best but knowing that this is the First time that 50 haiku poets and performers are getting together under one roof in India and a prayer to manage this smoothly would be my very breath of breaths!

love to all,
_kala

Hi, Ethel and Gabi! :)

No people around,
except for me to count doves
sparrows and roses.
