Srinivas S

third-day moon—

on its pegs we hang
our hopes

Composition by Matsumoto Shunsuke

About the writer:
A phonologist by training and an English teacher by profession, Srinivas S currently lives and works in Chennai, India. His downtime interests include cricket and poetry. He started writing haiku only a year ago and likes the form because it allows him to record simple moments even when he is on the move.
