Hi I’m Rajeshwari Srinivasan from India and I am a retired banker. I realised my inclination to poetry through my office house journal contributions.
I took Voluntary retirement at 42 yrs of age after putting 20 yrs of service. Married with a daughter I pursued my hobby post retirement and published a poetry book Voice Of my Heart, by Cyberwit Publications and also a Hindi poetry book ‘ Ek Prayas’ ( meaning An Attempt) by Infologihq publications . I was introduced to haiku writing by Kala Ramesh ( A pioneer of Haiku poetry in India) from In Haiku group and Triveni Haiku group in the year 2014. I was very much attracted to this form of poetry being the shortest and almost like a puzzle to solve based on prompts .
I Love it till today! I have some of my haiku published in journals like UTB (Under the Basho), Wales haiku Journal, Poetry pea podcast , Failed haiku , Prune juice etc. I became member of Daily Haiku with your invitation and am enjoying here . The main reason is freedom of expression in any form , encouragement from co -members and the beautiful and regular prompts. I mostly do not use pictures ,only words to express.
