Tejinder Sethi

A nutritionist by profession, Teji transitioned from micronutrients to micro poetry. She now loves concocting a mix of emotions through her short verses. Teji’s bilingual poems in free verse, haikai verses and works of art have found a home in numerous national and international venues. Her debut collection of Hindi poems, 'Cotton Blooms— Kapaas Ke Phool', was published in 2019, with The Partition Museum of India awarding one of its creations. The literary piece was later translated into Punjabi and broadcast over Radio Pakistan, Lahore. Her first book of haiku and senryu, 'Moss Laden Walls' was published in August 2021.

Notebook Dried Plants

reading between lines
the silence 
he never wrote

delivery room 
cold palms against the warmth
of a still born

Newborn Baby
Cherry Blossoms

as it goes with 
the wind this cherry petal
so shall I

a tender plant 
pushes through the cracks

autumn breeze 
her forehead still moist 
with the parting kiss
