The one who steals the rose in your garden,

Also steals the thorns.

Anita Bacha.

Author: Anita Bacha

Creative and inspirational writer of stories, poetry, and haikus I am also an addictive reader of novels, poetry, haiku, and children's storybooks. I am the author of SOUL POETRY a book of inspirational poems, verses, and quotes published by Partridge India (2015) The Maker of Miracles (2006) published in the USA by Dorrance Publishing and My Journey with God (2008) published under the banner of Sai Towers, India is the narration about my spiritual journey. My new poetry book INK Echo of life and love published by Éditions de L’Ocean Indien (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 storybook for children, released by Austin Macauley Publishers London in March 2019. Two years later, I was inspired to write and published two other books - WAKASHIO, a storybook for children, and PINK MOON - AN ANTHOLOGY OF HAIKU POEMS. I love to write. I guess my writing has a special cliché of island 🌴 life, natural, unpretentious, and full of beauty.

    1. Thank you too for reading and commenting Holly G. I clicked the picture in Beijing, China few years ago. More precisely, at the Great Wall of China. I caught a glimpse of a red rose and the sharp thorns, whilst climbing a flight of steps. Simultaneously, I was visiting the Beijing International Book Fair where my poetry book SOUL POETRY was exhibited. I was inspired to jot down this poem. I agree totally with you it’s powerful. I won’t tell what profound emotions inspired me personally. I leave it to my readers to interpret it according to their circumstances and their wishes.
      Thank you once more and good night 😘
