Three Dream Haikus - Poem by Ananta Madhavan

1. That day the Alps grew slowly beautiful.
Touching hands, we learnt to ski.

2. I did not race the river as I walked
Beneath the soft glades of spring.

3. Such was her loveliness,
It might have been ensnared
By a dream haiku.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

April 1963, in Switzerland.

    the images are beautiful as the expressive words are either carefully or naturally selected for the expression, but there are some differences here that collide with traditional haiku scheme, the base you laid for conveying the feel is neat and good! (Report) Reply
