My encounter with poetry was sudden. I didnt write a single poem till 2007. It was the fatal year when I happened to be bedridden for about four months. Obviously I was quite depressed. To while away my time, I started scribbling something and I felt what I wrote made sense and that was my first poem-The Great Escape. It was making myself convinced that my life was not meant to be languished in despair. It had such poignancy and depth of feeling..as it came directly from my heart!

Sensitive by nature, small things can excite me. Nature with her myriad faces has been my greatest inspiration. I am tied down to my family and with moderate comforts, I am happy in life. Retired from a... more »

    Thank you Aarzoo.....! I feel all the more humbled by this comment coming from a poet of your rank! I don't find any reason to be proud as I see many like you on this site much more gifted than myself! Yes.. the bulk of my poetry stems from my observation of Nature, it being my greatest source of inspiration!

    Very humble down to earth poet. An asset to this site for sharing wide range of poetry. I've found her writings raw, innocent and close to mother nature. Her poetry makes us realize our roots. her writing is all about love for mother nature. I wish her good health, long life and even more success. Thanks for guiding us to the right path through your inspiring poetry.

    Souren...... I feel greatly honored and am overwhelmed by your comment! You are the one who seem to fulfill T.S Eliot's vision of poetry to include in its periphery the entire literature of of Europe from Homer to the present. I am awed by your knowledge of literature at this young age! Thank you!

    Valsa George is perhaps one of the finest poets you would find in Poemhunter. Her poems range from incredible limmericks that would make you smile to poems with a spiritual vein to the ones deeply enriched in literary references. In my humble opinion, she truly has what T. S. Eliot considered to be one of the most essential aspect of writing poetry, that is the 'entire literature of Europe from Homer to present' in her bones. Read her poems for a good contemplation as well as pleasure. Her comments are always kind as she does not go along to dissect a poem to an extreme but tries to understand what the poet intended to convey with perfection. I have had the great luck of both reading her poems, commenting on them as well as receive her valuable critiques (never criticisms) . May she continue to make us smile, cry, and contemplate and of course, enlighten us with her bright and beautiful poetry.

    Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community ma'am.. We all are grateful to you..

Best Poem of Valsa George

Poet

Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod
He reigns, monarch in Fancy's domain
Sketching life in fanciful colour and mode

Which with pain and strife fraught
Or bright with gaiety and grace
In finer yarn than the gossamer thread
On the fabric of words in befitting verse

He steals away from the noisy crowd
In to the stillness of the cloistered cell
To dwell with Fancy's mystic charms
Weaving downy dreams at will

He recounts forgotten tales of yore
Of bloody battles won and lost,
Of lovers united, amour defiled, ...
