  • POEM: Winged Words by Valsa George (11/5/2014 8:31:00 PM)

    Dear Poet Valsa, I felicitate you on setting free your 'Winged Words' in your 400th poem for P-H, our
    host. I like the way you have re-lived the liberating ordeal of writing about your life-world ('samsara' in Sanskrit
    and some of our languages) , relying on your own sensibility, emotion, imaginative perception: the ultimate
    personal experience of a human being. Do not be constrained by rules of rhyme, meter and stanzas of old
    versification, so long as you feel the images flowing or flying. My best wishes to you. A. Madhavan

  • POEM: 'A Silent Night, a Holy Night' by Valsa George (8/31/2014 9:53:00 PM)

    Glad to see you are composing lines with melodic tones and upbeat spirit. A. Madhavan

  • POEM: Dust unto Dust by Valsa George (8/3/2014 9:42:00 PM)

    Read your meditation in these four-line stanzas, reconciling the mind to
    mortality, in your own way, though Gray's Elegy and other poems in many
    languages have made us conscious of this very foundation of life. This awareness
    is itself a foundation to live well, within our given resources. Bless you.
    A friend.

    Dear Poet Herbert Guitang, Thanks for reading and commenting on my poem about Karnatic music concerts in Madras long ago.
    So glad you are fond of music as part of local cultures and listen to music with an 'ethno-musicologist ' appreciation. I too listened
    to Western classical music eagerly after hearing Mozart's G Minor symphony (No.40) on the radio at one time. Do you respond to
    particular ragas more eagerly? Best wishes. Tell me which two poems of yours I should call up.
