My first publication !

My haiku have been published in the World Haiku Review in the haiku of merit. My second literary achievement after the Saarang 2006 Creative Writing crack. I feel like blowing my own trumpet a little, so please don't mind :) . The link to the World Haiku Club's review of the conference I attended is given below.

Haiku of Merit at the WHC

Many haiku above are brilliant, especially the award winning haiku by Kameshwar - has a true Zen ring to it. All poets were asked to submit three haiku for consideration in the contest. I am glad that all the three haiku submitted by me have made it to the top 20 ! Here are the haiku that made it.

still winter night
the wind chimes tinkle
as I close the door
constipated baby ~
after an hour in the toilet
a smile
large Gulmohar tree
I stop to see an iora
it flies away

PS: An iora is a small yellow bird. Any comments on my work are welcome.

Lovely haikus!
And I was flabbergasted when I saw in your blogroll my name followed by 'My bestest friend' within parentheses. Lol.
