A Leaf of Your Tree – A Poem by Anita Bacha

Of your tree so mighty,

I am a leaf so green and tiny;

Neither an apple nor a fig,

I hold on to a twig;

In winter I shiver and I freeze,

In summer I sway in the breeze;

Drenched in torrential rain,

I cry in grief and in pain;

Scalded in the burning sun,

I shrivel and I shun;

A creeper I long to mime,

My arms enlacing you;

Heavenly heights to climb, 

My soul enrobing you.

~ Anita Bacha ~

Thank you for your visit my dear friends.

First Leaf of the Fall

Behold the first turn of the autumn leaf 
From green to amber light,
From yellow to rusty veins;
Behold the game of life,
Like the autumn leaf
We have lived,
Gracefully, we detach,
Knowing life is a gift of God,
We take our leave,
Make way for new leaves

On the Quay of Farewell – A Poem by Anita Bacha

On the quay of farewell 

In a covetous embrace 

You gave me your heart 

On the quay of farewell 

You wiped my tears with your lips 

You offered me your eyes 

On the quay of farewell 

You spoke to me about your suffering 

You wanted my mouth to feel your fading breath 

On the quay of farewell 

You wanted me to remember your desires 

Your thirst and your hunger insatiate 

On the quay of farewell 

You fumbled for the tenderness and sweetness that are in me

That you will never find in another 

On the quay of farewell 

You hugged me tight in your arms 

You wanted to keep me forever 

On the quay of farewell 

Heavy as a winter coat 

The separation bent you into two 

And you shouted my name 

Anita Bacha

Begonia – A Short Poem by Anita Bacha


Under the showering rain,

Shaken by the swells of the gale,

A sweet, pastel pink, begonia,

A petite, elusive begonia,

Beckons my heart in pain;

A flood of love carries me away,

Drifting me tenderly at bay.

Anita Bacha 

Begonia is a short poem from my poetry book‘INK – Echo of life and love’. Published by the biggest publishing house ‘Éditions de L’Ocean Indien’ of Mauritius in 2019. 

Sadly, that book is available for purchase solely on the local market. On the other hand and, happily I have a big audience in my birth country. I am loved by the beautiful people of Mauritius and my work is applauded by many.

If I were a flower- A Poem by Anita Bacha

If I were a flower 

If I were a flower for the joy of being a flower 

A leaf for being a leaf 

If I were a stem

If I were a leaf and a stem to dress up a flower 

If I were a flower that you will place on your heart 

If I were all sleek and purple petals 

Petals to cover the nudity of a flower 

If I were a flower that you will place on your heart 

If I were the eyelids for the delight of being the eyelids 

The lashes for being the lashes 

If I were the eyes 

If I were the eyelids and the lashes to cover your eyes 

If I were a tear

A tear running down a cheek 

A tear that loses itself in the lips 

If I were the lips that caress a flower 

If I were the lips and you were a flower…

The Princess and the Crow – Illustrated Children’s Book by Anita Bacha

Hold the hand of the child that lives in your soul 

For this child nothing is impossible 

Paulo Coelho 

Author of The Alchemist 

As a child I was fond of reading books.My papa offered me my first illustrated children’s book in French ‘Toto et Titi’ when I was three. I delved in the pages of my treasured book and I had a dream. I dreamt of my name on the front cover of the book.

I cherished the dream for a long time. Writing a book for children sounded like impossible… a poetry book for adults crossed my mind often. Yet I hold on to the dream of writing a book for all the children in the world.

This dream became true when many many years after, I wrote and published my debut children’s book, The Princess and the Crow.

Many of you may have read that book and many of you are aspiring authors.

Hold the hand of the child that lives in your soul and make the impossible become possible NOW.

Anita Bacha

Thank you for reading my dear friends.

Frozen Rose Garden – A Haiku by Anita Bacha

Frozen rose garden 

Silent miles of snow whitens

Days without evenings 

Anita Bacha

Decades ago, a young woman arrived in England to pursue academic and professional studies. She came from a tropical island in the Indian Ocean where the sun shines all through the two tropical seasons, summer and winter.

A white cotton ball fell on the tip of her nose ,one December morning while she hurried to Earl’s Court tube station on her way to Lincoln’s Inn at Chancery Lane.

That first ball was followed by uncontrollable number of snow flakes. She cried with joy!That young woman was me.

It was the first time I saw snow in my life!

Now I enjoy writing about snow and winter.

Thorns – A Poem by Rumi

Look at me and hear me

Because I’m here just for that

I am your moon

And your moonlight too

I am your flower garden

And your water too

I have come all this way 

Eager for you

Without shoes or shawl

I want you to laugh

To kill all your worries

To love you

To nourish you

O Sweet Bitterness!

I will soothe and heal you

I will bring you roses

I too have been covered with thorns
