Issa week – quick! lizard

#Haiku Happenings #3: Cafe Haiku presents Issa-inspired haiku by Raamesh Gowri Raghavan!

Cafe Haiku

We asked poets to write like Issa and recieved a few entries which we will carry over the next few days, as the Issa Week following his anniversary on the 5th of January.

Raamesh Gowri Raghavan

moon! shine brighter
my pup is searching
for cats to chase

quick! lizard
behind the picture
— my aunt is here

locked down again
— what gods answer
my dog’s prayers?

just warm enough
for the mosquitoes —
new year’s night

new year morning
wresting one last shave
from the old blade
