Overview

Summary of the Book

In my poems I have tried to capture a profound spirit of all that has come into my life and inspired me. Moments that have touched me, humoured me or made me wonder ‘WHY’, have motivated me to illuminate and personify feelings into creating this book,

As a woman I am stirred to write about ‘HER’ in various personas, as in, Woman, A Woman Reborn, A Mother To Her Daughter.

As seasons change, nature paints its art with such beautiful harmony, bringing alive the flora and fauna with it. The feel of spring, summer, monsoon, autumn, winter are visual 'poetry' in itself. I get enthused to write.

At times I have let my mind deviate from reality into fantasy and have penned poems in the form of ballads and light hearted banter about ‘fun’ moments in my life.

Emotions too take over and a lot of nostalgia and a cache of soul stirring feelings pour out on paper. A neighbourhood stray dog I feed, an old man who begs at my street corner, poverty on the footpaths, a walk in the woods, remembering wistfully all those who have made a difference in my life, the mountains, the sunrise, sunset………all have a story to tell, if only we would pause and listen. For me their existence is my ‘poetry’ and through my ‘poetry’ they exist.

So come, be a part of this journey and find a connection and a bit of yourself in these pages.

About the Author

Mira Midha is 59 years old and currently lives in Pune with her family. She has been writing poems from the time she was a young girl and has now compiled these poems, written over a span of 45 years in this book titled 'Whispers at My Doorstep'. This is her first publication. She evolved from a daughter to a friend, a wife a mother and now a grandmother. For her these relationships brought a lot of treasured moments of joy and sadness and this resonates throughout her poems. Mira is also a artist and has had a few shows in Pune. She says; "As an artist I brush my 'visions' with colour on canvas and pen my 'thoughts' with words on paper. I may or not convey the thoughts I feel through my poetry as 'works of art' speak different languages to different people. Poems are an enigma. They are meant to challenge your thought process to make you think, ponder and dwell. For me to explain the meaning behind my poems would be to deprive the reader of being able to emote through their own imagination."
