Hey friends,

You’ve been reading my blog posts regularly and you know most of them are poems. So I thought about sharing some of my publications with you.

Destiny Poets is a the most wonderful platform for poets to showcase their work. Louis Kasatkin ( http://www.destinypoets.co.uk/?page_id=11336 ) one of Yorkshire’s leading poets and workshop leaders has since 2010, been developing and managing this online venture that encourages poets across the globe.

Here is the poem I contributed for the anthology.

Memories

Waving by at me a face,

A face of an infant, which makes me weak and debilitate,

Flushed I turned my face away.

He touched me and asked me the way,

I wonder why me he interrogates,

I hanker to push him away,

In a flash he disappears,

But, now he appears everywhere.

 

Taj Mahal Review published by Cyberwit.net http://www.cyberwit.net/publications/405

Taj Mahal Review June 2012 is an anthology that includes poems, short stories, literary criticism, book reviews, artwork by international artists, and many other interesting features.

Here is the poem I contributed for the anthology.

Sickle and Sword

The more you traverse the distance,

the less fascinating is the destination.

The journey of a recluse is about the relation to herself,

the destination is detachment to all.

Entanglements make her weak,

to engage is a luxury,

to distance is a pleasure,

The mind captures silence,

and enjoys lingering in solitude and silence.

The journey is but a habit,

Dusk is the sickle to the weeds of sorrow and a sword to battle the last breath.
