    I enjoy K. Ramesh's work perfusely. He has also been published in bottle rockets:a collection of short verse where his style fits quite well. I find his poems original, clean and multilayered in ways that sneak up on you. Just like finding the tennis ball under the leaves, an experience many of have had. His creativity often takes haiku into fresh territory, a much needed thing.

    in the garden
    while adults picking weeds
    child is looking for flowers

    summer, blue skies
    wisp of a moon

    my youthful dreams, revived

    busy tennis club;
    a slum baby
    watches thru the fence

    slum baby?
    set off my imagination, specially next to a tennis club


    incessant crowing--
    no lack of roosters
    for the pot today
