The Night Train of Nagaur

How to tell you,

What is more painful than a blast in the ear,

More painful than a suppressed tear,

More painful than the whistle of a train,I hear;

How to tell you,

Nothing is more painful than your leave,

Feigning that without you I can live;

How to tell you,

What is a beloved without the lover,

Or a lover without the beloved,

Or me without you, or you without me;

How to tell you,

What is the sky without a moon,

Or a moon without the sky,

Or me without you, or you without me.

Creative and inspirational writer and poet, I lam also an addictive reader of novels, poetry and children story books. I am the author of Soul Poetry a book of inspirational poems, verses and quotes (2015) The Maker of Miracles (2006) and My Journey with God (2008) are narrations about my journey with my spiritual guru. My new poetry book INK Echo of life and love published by ร‰ditions de Lโ€™Ocean Indien earlier this year (2019) in Mauritius, my birth country is a collection of love poems extolling the feelings and desires of women. The Princess and the Crow is my first story book for children ,released by Austin Macauley Publishers London in March 2019. I love to write. I guess my writing has a special clichรฉ of island ๐ŸŒด life, natural,unpretentious and full of beauty.

    1. Thank you so much ๐Ÿ˜Š I am glad I have conveyed to you specially and to my readers the intense emotions of a village woman who sees her husband off at the railway station after a brief encounter.
      The plight of the villagers in India ,who have to leave their families behind, and to go for work in the big industrialized cities,pains me personally.
      I am glad you read the poem and you like the picture of the passenger train of Nagaur in India.
      Thank you once more.
