Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #82 Milan Rajkumar's "frog on lotus leaf "

Dear Hijin, visitors and travelers,

In this Tokubetsudesu episode I will honor milan rajkumar as the runner-up of our "new life" kukai. His haiku finished as second and this is what that haiku was:

lifeless for a season
pupa inside the ocean
spring gives life and wings

milan rajkumar lives in imphal, manipur india and is a secondary school teacher who teaches fixed and flexible exchange rates while writing haiku. he is so humble that he doesn’t want to use “I” and capital letters

milan rajkumar
milan is in my opinion a wonderful poet, very gifted and full of spirituality. So I have chosen a haiku written by him in which I find that spirituality in a very strong way.

Milan is one of the CDHK family members who is very constant in his visits to CDHK and he Always tries to participate. In May we had a wonderful Tan Renga Challenge month and I love to share a Tan Renga completed by Milan. I think he did this is in a very beautiful way.

the spring gone dry,
rocks here and there

Milan also writes sometimes tanka and recently he published a beautiful tanka in response on one of the "Latifa Prayer" episodes.

frog on lotus leaf
sitting and admiring
lotus bloom

does it care the snake
which looms behind .
