Autumn symphony 

A soft breeze ruffles my hair 

Music’s in the air 

Viridescent leaves turn red 

One by one they are falling

A few more haiku to welcome the month of September. Hope you enjoy them,my dear friends and readers:

Perpetual eve

Sunflower tints thwart the shore

Sky drapes in saffron

The sea pulls its waves 

Molten colors on pebbles

 What  a lovely dusk 

Birds fly far away 

Leaving a quill on the shore 

A poem starts here

Mind blowing  landscape 

Arousing expanse fondness 

Ink flows from my heart

Haunting prance of waves 

A blaze of rites and colors 

Nibbana on earth

Thank you for viewing and reading

Acclaimed worldwide for his imagination and sensitivity, London based Japanese composer/artist, HIRAI MOTOKI ,has appeared in over 100 countries across the globe, performing in prestigious venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall,Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, Vienna’s Konzerthaus and London’s Wigmore Hall.

The Guardian  – Hirai Motoki “a most brilliant and sensitive musical talent.”

The Piano Concert was a great success and included two Mauritius Premiere and exclusive solo recitals of J.SBach: Ardante Maestoso ,Mozart:Adagio. Schubert:By the Sea ,Schumann :Taumerel. Albéniz:Tango. Liszt:Maiden’s Wish,Chopin:Nocturne and Grieg: Wedding Day at Troidhaugen by Maestro Hirai Motoki

A brief private meeting with Hirai Motoki at intermission, I posed for a photo with him, a signed copy of Pink Moon in his hands.

A memorable evening packed with mind blowing emotions for the audience and for me.

Cool Moon – A Tanka Poem by Anita Bacha

Beyond scalding heat,

Drifting in the lush blueness, 

A luscious cool moon;

Lying on the sandy beach,

Soft ripples caress my toes.

Happy reading my dear friends.

The Other Side Of Paradise – A Love Poem by Anita Bacha


God only knows,

She saw your smile in the crescent of the moon,

She saw your tears sashaying her window screen,

Or was it raining on a full moon night;

God only knows,

She was madly in love with the idea of you,

The scent of  henna on her beloved’s hand,

Breathed the perfume of rose in the desert sand;

God only knows,

How far this traveler had run around the globe,

She saw your footprints in a puddle of water,

She saw your fingers running in her tangled hair,

Or was it the rustling of the mimosa leaves;

God only knows,

She was intoxicated by the words falling from your lips,

She let you feast on her riches and her body,

She let you steal her soul,

She lost herself in you and she came to be you;

God only knows,

She heard her beseeching voice in the haboob,

Or was it the cry of a lamb in the arid dunes,

God only knows.

Anita Bacha 

Dear friends and readers, The Other Side of Paradise, is one of the poems that you will find in Part 2 of my poetry book INK, Echo of life and love (2019).

Ode to Monsoon – A Tanka Poem by Anita Bacha


On flooded rice fields,

The rhythm of the falling rain,

An ode to monsoon;

Children splash in soiled puddle,

Green frogs musically croak.

Good morning and happy Monday,my dear friends!

Happy Reading.

Glossy Blossoms – A Tanka Poem by Anita Bacha

Transience of beauty,

Glossy blossoms writhe and fall,

In a matter of time;

Summer flows in my garden,

Perky buds open their folds.
