dense fog
the train evaporates
into a distant horn

    I've been lucky enough to hear this haiku live from Kala at the Royal Festival Hall as a guest of With Words and the London Haiku Group.

    As Kala knows, I love this haiku.

    If you google "Area 17 kala" you'll see _kala in action as the guest of With Words and the London Haiku Group.

    Thanks Martin,
    This is a memory ku, when we had visited Shimla some 20 years back. At that time I didn't even know an art-form like haiku existed!

    Another train haiku:

    the night train passes
    along the mountain trail
    garlic snores

    distant whistle,
    approaching thunder–
    his eyes trace the tracks

    g'day kala

    this is a beauty.

    relief at last…
    moving out from
    the madness of city

    peace and love

    Your haiku brought a smile, very true!
