Poet of the Week: Seema Sharma

Seema Sharma. who writes with much verve, was chosen as one of three Poets of the Week (October 2nd - 8th), from our ILA Magazine Facebook group. "AN ODE TO POESY" My Muse! Thou art humbly called to sprinkle thy grace
My thoughts find solace in thy embrace
Come over, let me deck you with my words and phrase
I wish to put life in my musings and leave a trace

Thou art my inspiration, I seek your pleasant stay
I beseech you to be here to enthuse my spirits right away
Anxious is my soul, heart is calling thou aloud
Do come and drizzle upon me some wisdom with gentle sound

Here I sit with a welcome note
Having the 'word-garland' I have weaved to put on you around
The windows of my heart and mind remain open wide
Please show my writings the doorway to people's minds

Am in love with the new words and phrases
Do come at my humble call t rekindle my thoughts
And infuse a sweet taste in my poems and notes
I wish to fill in them the hues of new craze
O Thou, gush a fire with thy generous praise. © Seema Sharma
