We are pleased to present our next Poet to Notice: Sreemanti Sengupta
We hope you enjoy these 4 haiku as much as we did.

 

Poet

The poet’s house
went from
verse to verse

Love

He made love
like a
fasting dog

~

Conjugal

Their marriage
was like a
clown’s smile

~

Christmas

A nun
at the confession box
Christmas in the air
