Spring Buds

#Haiku Happenings #5: Reena’s latest #haibun for #dversepoets!

Reena Saxena

words reawaken

nights and its beasts within

dormant lies the soul

You reminded me, Toni. I need to find that teacher and prove a point to her. I dabbled with fiction in school, which was termed frivolous and largely ignored. I don’t remember a single pat for my ability to spin yarns. The college magazine brought out the poet in me, and once again, my contributions were looked at with suspicion.

“Have you done it, or is it plagiarised?” No accolades…..

A prize won in an international essay competition earned me some respect for my skills. I remained a contributor to house magazines and poetry reading sessions thereafter. Blogging platforms, the online education in various formats and the prompts happened late in life. I find poetry publishers still hard to come by.

late bloomers galore

tiny spring buds await
