Biography of Gita Ashok
I play multiple fascinating roles in the drama of life - that of a daughter, sister, wife, daughter-in-law, aunt, mother, teacher, student, devotee, friend, artist, writer, reader, editor and so on and so forth.... Above all, a human being who is all the time intrigued by every tiny aspect of life on this planet. And now PoemHunter has given me a new and exciting role to play... that of a poet! ! ! I have a passion for life, art, reading, writing, walking, music, cooking, poetry, travelling, photography, blogging, embroidery, solving Sudoku and Crossword puzzles, watching the world go by and most importantly watching Nature.... Much of my inspiration for writing comes from Nature and all the various hues and moods of our lives. I strongly believe in the axiom:
'Dream as if you'll live forever,
live as if you'll die tomorrow.'
The Sounds of Nature
The shrill wake-up call of a rooster
Even before the crack of dawn.
The faint cawing of crows
To let the world know
It’s time to leave Slumber land.
The flapping of wings in unison
Before flying away early to catch a worm.
The desperate call of a baby squirrel
Lost somewhere and seeking its mother.
