Echo of Cuckoo’s Song – Tanka – A Poem by Anita Bacha

Echo of cuckoo’s song

In the deep stardust valleys 

Electric colors 

Dawn breaks fawning reverence 

Sunset’s docile somnolence

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 ~

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 

Thank you for viewing and reading my dear friends 

Happy evening

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.

Thank you for your visit, my dear friends

Your book of poetry 

Dried roses in the old chest

Legacy of love 

Gone too early beloved 

Yellow pages soaked with tears
