    Dear Mr. Seth,
    Of course I like your poetry which is why I'm mailing you. Could you please check out the website www.openspaceindia.org and the section Talking Poetry. It's a new site but I'm sure you will recognize many of the poets. I'd very much like to have your poems up. If you say yes we go ahead - either posting the poems from here or from the books.
    As thanks I could perhaps send you a reworked tanka after Shikibu. Or Ono no Komachi. Or maybe a take off from the akam or the puram.
    Do support the site. There are some wonderful new poets up there.
    Best
    Priya Sarukkai Chabria

    a poem, which makes people contribute for tsunami victims, although the poem recalls memories of my mom who always worried about my health when i am away from her. (Report)Reply
