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.
