Green Beryls

If you have never looked deep inside the eyes of a child, do it now! There is much more than you can imagine… 🌞

GREEN BERYLS 

Two drops run down her cheeks;

In the space of one breath,

I caught the pearls,

Rolled them between my thumb

and index finger,

Smell them,

Guess their taste of honey melon,

“Why do they taste so sweet?”

“Don’t Know!”she replied peevishly.

“Your eyes are so beautiful.”

“I know “she said, wiping her tears.

“What’s the colour of your eyes?” looking deep inside her eyes,

“Saxon green!”

“Yes, indeed

and, I see the brilliance of the sun.”

“There are clouds too”she said

“Clouds make the rain,

then fall as tears!”

White Flowers in the Night

Take me with you,

To a land where white flowers

Bloom in the night,

Where moths freely die in the light,

As I bloom and I die in your favors;

Take me with you,

Keep me close to you,

As the scent of white flowers

Invigorate the breath of lovers,

And I write with the ink of your eyes,

These petals of poetry,

Chaste as white flowers in the night.

Save My Ego

Prattling of raindrops on the roof,

Rivaling beats of drums aloof,

Senseless stares in an empty space,

Trying hard to read your face,

No regret,no remorse,no shame,

For you it was just a game;

Breathless when I say goodbye,

Hiding from you my hurt,my cry,

She has come back, I cannot stay,

Love triangles are doomed anyway;

Babbling of voices in my head,

Competing with singings of the dead,

I hold my heart, I have to let you go,

Broken,I have nothing left save my ego.

INK Echo of life and love

But words are things,

And a small drop of ink,

Falling like dew,

Upon a thought,

Produces that which makes,

Thousands ,perhaps millions,think.

Lord Byron

My poetry book INK Echo of life and love (2019) was publicly released, launched and unveiled on 10 April 2019 at the Hennessy Park Hotel in Mauritius.

INK is my second poetry book. It’s a fusion of classic and modern poems of all genres.

Ink is associated from time immemorial with the art of writing and calligraphy.

Words when spoken are ephemeral; words when written are eternal.

My work is divided in three parts.

The first part Power of Love consists of love poems that conveys to the reader the adage ‘at the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.’ Irrespective of age,gender,color of skin, everybody falls in love.

Power of Words, the second part, is the expression of deep rooted feelings,emotions and sentiments in writing.

In the third part, Power of Delusion,the reader will find poems about impossible love,infatuation,deception,disloyalty and break ups.

My poems are daring, straightforward and thought provoking. I couldn’t write them if I were not sincere, if I did not believe in myself and in you!

I wrote them for poetry lovers and for you, my dear reader.

The Library

Books,magazines,newspapers,

All nicely stacked,waiting for readers,

The librarian,Mrs Jones,clad in a dress,

Welcomes me with a short address,

The Library is a quiet place,my dear,

The silence of books,we hear,

They wake up from their sleep,

When readers pick them up to read;

Mrs Jones knows my love for poetry books,

I go straight to them, with adept looks.

In the picture, the Wood Green Central Library, fifteen minutes ‘ walk from where we live in Wood Green or five minutes by W3,the bus.

We bought the house when our son started his university studies. The choice went for Wood Green mainly because of the library. We had inculcated the love for books in our children from an early age.

A library is quiet and the best place to relax with a book of our choice.The peaceful vibes fill our whole being with a need to acquire knowledge about things,people,countries, habits,customs and, much more that we can only find in books and nowhere else.

Readers of poetry books will find a copy of my book Soul Poetry Inspirational Poems,Verses and Quotes at the Wood Green Library πŸ“š

Happy reading! Happy Spring Break πŸƒπŸŒΈπŸƒπŸŒ±πŸŒΌπŸŒ±β˜˜οΈπŸŒ·β˜˜οΈ

How to tell you

How to tell you,

What is sweeter than a drop of honey,

Sweeter than a grain of sugar,

Sweeter than the juice of a strawberry;

How to tell you,

Nothing is sweeter than your tongue,

Melting like ice in my mouth;

How to tell you,

What is a flower without a bumble bee,

Or a bumble bee without a flower,

Or me without you, or you without me.
