Pravat Kumar Padhy

the poet scripts
her well-lit voyage
ripples of love
the darkness paints
gently on the silken edges

Pravat Kumar Padhy‘s tanka highlights the power of a poem to impress itself on our minds, the page and the world. Pravat is a poet-laureate in Bhubaneswar, India. His short form of Japanese poems have appeared in many international journals.
