LOVE and Other Poems


Each week, we recognize poets who submit to our Facebook group with recognition as we read, choosing randomly, poems that truly touch the heart and soul. The poems below were chosen the week ending September 24th.



If I love lightning bugs draw the drop on my forehead.

Nirbhaya aunty holds my hand and says you run higher... lift your head near the hill. The day the world will be amazed when your eyes will be filled with love for all. I don't know how many pages you read and how many degrees you get... before the feeling of love fades in the human classroom, take love in your hand. Wash your eyes with green mist then dream sea river will come alive... If you love the picture of daily living will become colorful language. Oh come quickly we learn to love. © Jotsna Jari


"What Do You Call Him?"

Walking... On the barren sand... Your back pack exhausted... The overhead friend... Relentless... With this scorching love... When you are thirsty... And yearning... For a shade and water... Some one giving you... A shelter... And a glass of fruit juice... What Do You Call Him? "A friend God sent" And... Be ready... To pay back with your life

"Rose of Arid Land"

The plant stood there Beneath it, no fertilizer Each day withering They come to admire Though feeling no desire Suggesting to keep in freezer. There it stood While another stopped by Not much wood Needing some food Yet too busy to supply The rose still rooted, There, on the arid land Lovers were all elevated Various views pointed Dropping no value on the ground. Then came another person Who stood tall by the rose Day and night, every season if not a crime of treason, He would write his own prose. Sprouting out in the open Cracking the soil to fan Finding for her own, a haven Time to be woven Indeed, the rose of arid land. © Abbah Justina



Art is special a gift from the Creator, some are gifted by voice others by writing verses. Some play with others they compose a melody, Painters when they feel it love with a brush of consecration. Some give shape to everything sculpture lovers know them, while some pretend the directors are timidly annoyed. Some like to take photos while others draw various plans, few of us draw comics, while most skip the clips © Emir Hasić Hase
