New Interview with Kala Ramesh!!!!

Kala Ramesh is well known all over the world, but especially for her work in her home country of India. I first ‘met’ her on the Internet almost two decades ago, and we have been friends since. Her work has been published in many journals, and she has been a speaker at many haiku conferences and gatherings. Besides being a wonderful poet she is an energetic and positive supporter of haiku in all its forms, and of other poets. Thank you Kala!!!

Kala has also premiered recently this video, which is a collaboration with Masood Hussain! Give it a listen!

New Interview with author, poet, and humanitarian Hifsa Ashraf!!! This interview is something I cherish. We had some Internet issues travelling between Presque Isle, Michigan and Pakistan, but this delightful poet shined right through!!! Thank you Hifsa for being YOU!

At the very end of our interview, we lost the Internet connection. BUT, she was about to ask ME to be interviewed by her and Kala Ramesh! I had no choice but to accept, so that will be forthcoming shortly! I thank Hifsa for doing this interview and for being the person she is. We only need more Hifsa’s not less! Hifsa Ashraf, is a well-known author of several books and was recently shortlisted for the Touchstone Book Award that is presented each year by The Haiku Foundation. “Her Fading Henna Tattoo”, is a poetic tour de force on the topic of Domestic Abuse. Her blog has many of her recent publications. https://wordpress.com/view/hifsayz.wo…​ Inner Voice Blog https://hifsays.blogspot.com/​ Running After Shadows Poetry Collection https://www.amazon.com/Running-After-…​ Her Fading Henna Tattoo – Touchstone Book Award – shortlisted https://www.amazon.com/s?k=her+fading…​ Twitter: @hifsays
