Notes on the Poems

Some of you might feel that the climate mentioned in these poems are pretty weird. This is because I am from Kerala, which is at the southern tip of India. The summer here starts from the month of February and ends before the first week of June. The summer showers occurs during the month of March or April. The rainy season (better known as Monsoon) ends by August. Raining along with thunder and lightning occurs during the months of September and October. November, December and January are fairly cooler months, with little rain.

I do not believe in conforming a poem to strict rhyme and meter, but like the 'imagists' I believe that the exact word must be used. Sometimes, I rely on the outward form of Haiku or Ghazal, but then concentrate more on creating newer themes, instead of being trapped in the form dictated by old masters of poetry.
