    Funeral
    You left me in the rooms where
    Death alone smelt.
    I fear nothing in the darkness
    Save your absence.
    I am dead, motionless
    Without your love, grace, care.

    Longer than your fragrance
    Sweeter than your smile
    Hotter than your veins
    Death walks around me.
    I am dead, motionless
    Without your love, grace, care.

    I am buried in the wine yard
    Seven footsteps of yours
    Tears trickled down on my cheeks.
    Angel knocks at my grave
    And then a rain dropp oozed into my coffin.
    And drizzled me a secret
    It is raining on the grave.

    Love is my religion, love is my prophet,
    Love is my prayer and poetry is my beloved.
    You buried me where corpse speak
    Nothing but of love
    I fear nothing in the grave
    But you are all alone in the rain.

    Hello respected fellow - poets.
    I have only just joined PoemHunter.com and am still finding my way around.
    However, I have posted two poems on my page: one entitled " Eternal England" , the other: " True Greatness" .
    I hope you'll go and have a look at them, although it's too much to hope that anyone will actually like them!
    However, should anyone be interested, I have put a few others on my blog: http://thurstanbasset.wordpress.com/ where'll you'll also find my great friend Dingo so if you don't like my poetry, I think you might like him and his doings!
    Cheers.

    Hi Poets, I recently joined PH and am looking forward to reading your poems and invite you to read mine. I've always been cautious trying to analyze a poem, even mine. For me the first draft comes from a place of absolute purity and innocence delivered like a new born baby, and often shocking me because I had no real control over his conception. I was merely the carrier of the message. He looks up at me with expectant eyes and I start to pull and prod until he stands on his own two feet at which point I present him to the world where he must either stand or fall. Its a mysterious process isn't it.

    Dear Fellow Poets

    I have recently published a book of poems - " From Womb To World" .

    In these poems, I have tried to put into words the feelings of motherhood- right from pregnancy till 1st year of the baby.

    They depict feelings of a mother and activities of her baby.

    All are based on my experiences, which I wish to treasure, so that later in life through these poems I can re-live this phase of my life.

    Though the poems may be simple, one enjoy any number of times and through any time in life, yet evoking cherished emotions!

    The book is available on: amazon.com, flipkart.com, www.cyberwit.net

    Please spare some time to read my book and provide your comments. They will be a good learning experience for me.

    ************************** Sample Poem ***********************
    1. A Butterfly Flaps Inside
    A visitor from heaven
    Has made me its home
    A butterfly flaps inside…

    Nestling inside me
    Stretching its wings
    A butterfly flaps inside…

    Listening to my voice
    Speaking in silent words
    A butterfly flaps inside…

    Swaying to the rhythm of my breath
    Tapping to the beats of my heart
    A butterfly flaps inside…

    One with my soul
    Whole of my consciousness
    A butterfly flaps inside…

    2. List of Don’ts
    Don’t put everything in your mouth
    Don’t cover your face with cloth
    Don’t pull your hair
    Don’t tear the paper
    Don’t turn on your tummy
    Don’t, when I change your nappy
    Don’t play when its time to sleep
    Don’t sleep when its time to eat
    Don’t expect to be always lifted in arms
    Don’t crawl out till we take you in pram
    Don’t shout out aloud
    Don’t cry for everything you want…
    Long is the list of don’ts
    And countless times I have told
    But if time be reversed by some years
    Mother too will be like daughter!

    ********************************************************************

    Thanks
    Akhila
