Hello everyone,
I am happy to share today, that my poem, “Way With Words” is now up on Spillwords Press.
This is my 7th poem chosen for their site, and once again I am grateful to the editors and all at Spillwords, for accepting my latest submission.

Way With Words.
I lost my way with words when I lost you.
I had this way with them, I was the gentle trainer,
and words were pigeons, squabbling,
until I coaxed them to their place;
and even if I let them go, a thousand miles from where you lived,
I know…because I know…
you felt their wings aflutter, trying to get back home upon your chest,
and there they stayed a while, before they laid upon my sheet to rest…….

    • Dear Navin..well you made this comment on December 8, and just now, I am seeing it and feeling like, “how did I not see this?” Well..I’m here now, reading your words and they are wonderful and inspiring and thank you Navin for reading and entering into my poem. You have an amazing way with words yourself!!:) What you have said has touched me deeply. Thank you for showing your sincere appreciation of my poetry and being happy for me too:):) It takes a generous heart and I perceive yours to be almost limitless…and so giving, so unselfishly happy for others.. Smiles in admiration and sincerity for your comment.
