HAIKU & HAIBUN
‘beyond the horizon beyond’ is Kala’s first book containing eleven years of her work. It has 281 haiku divided into 5 elements, known as the Panchabhutas and 41 haibun (haiku embedded prose). The cover design and illustrations are by Prabha Mallya.
In this book are many examples of Kala’s unique voice, which offers a delicacy of language, through her ability to articulate nuanced interior worlds.

All Kala’s many interests and studies resolve themselves in Kala: Haiku poet? Indian poet? Woman poet? A phenomenal poet, surely, ever absorbing and moving beyond what she finds in haiku, in art, in philosophy, in life. Travel with her as she takes us beyond the horizon beyond.
