    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:,,

    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!

    I know of only one website where you can get your poem published by winning the contest. All you gotta do is look up " poem contests" on google and it should be the fourth one down if not then look for the one that says " free $10,000 poetry contest-enter poetry contests for free!

    Hi everyone! I don't know what's your motivation to write but mine is great pleasure and catharsis in time of crisis. For all those passing through life's many winding paths, please read my poems and see if there's any piece of you in there. I'll read yours and comment as well if you leave a comment. Would love to join challenging contests as well.
