Dear Alan I will try to translate when I find time! Some of your haiku are not easy to translate into the languages I know, if I have to be reasonably accurate, due to intrinsic differences of nuances, between various tongues

Thanks Narayanan,

Many many thanks.

For some reason on my honourary mother in law's computer, I could see the Malayalam script but on my own computer, now I'm back home, it's just boxes alas.

If you are able to, could you email me, with a word.doc attachment?

Yes, some of the haiku use PoMo (Post Modern) language or are riffing off L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poetry.

I do have some simpler shasei work though e.g.

train whistle
a blackbird hops
along its notes

Alan Summers

To be published in Presence #47

The play on words is that the bird is hopping along to the train's whistling notes, not just its own.
