River--By Raamesh Gowri Raghavan--India


foggy morning
the river flows from nothing
to nothing

first sun
the ashen-faced river
suddenly gleams

Rorschach blots
what the ripples reveal
and conceal

fighting the currents
to stay in the same place
river fish

silver half-circles
the sea on the night
of the full moon

Raamesh Gowri Raghavan moonlights as an award-winning copywriter by day and daylights as an award-wanting poet by night. He thinks he is funny, but his friends vehemently disagree.


  1. A beautiful haiku sequence, Raamesh. I look forward to reading more of your work.

  2. great images of your river. I have seen fish doing this under bridges. Excellent observations. Skilfully communicated. SuZ
