चंडीगढ़ में अखिल भारतीय कवयित्री सम्मेलन शुरू

गांव गांव में ज़रूरत है ऐसे आयोजनों की तांकि भाषा का सौहार्द बना रहे चंडीगढ़//लुधियाना: 9 नवंबर 2017: (कार्तिका//पंजाब स्क्रीन):: मेरा जन्म एक पंजाबी परिवार में हुआ। एक ऐसा परिवार जहांहर भाषा का सम्मान करना सिखाया जाताहै। इसके बावजूद मेरे बोलचाल की मुख्य भाषा काफी देर तकपंजाबी ही रही। धीरे धीरे कब यह हिंदी और पंजाबी का मिक्स अंदाज़ आ गया खुद भी याद नहीं आता। जब सितंबर-2017 मेंपीएयू ने एक प्रतियोगिता का आयोजन कराया तो उस समय भी मेरी पंजाबी काव्य रचना को ही प्रथम पुरुस्कार मिला। इस सब के बावजूदमेरा हिं... read more »

Letter-To-God

Greetings everyone! ♥ So often we turn to God in our times of need.In our desperation we go to Him to pleadFor His Help, His Guidance, to fix what has been broken,But when all is well, so fewer words to Him are then spoken.So this makes me wonder how often He must yearnFor some words of gratitude without requesting a return.Few of us humans like the feeling when we're being used.If only called upon to serve a purpose, we are not amused.When we deal with others, we should the Golden Rule apply,Treating ... read more »

Across the Land

The wind was getting stronger, And the prints were too ragged, The hope was fickle, so were odds, And hapless soul was too shagged, Deaf, blind and a monk naked, As pure at heart asdiamantine, The sun was raging and sand agitated, Burning at heart searched for divine, The shadows were raging and alive, And prints were lost in storm of time, The wind was wild, with a mirage in sight, And digs too seemed like a hard climb, Hope was fading, the vision was blurred, He prayed to Lord, not to b... read more »

Row-YOUR-Boat

Greetings everyone! ♥ For the better part of about the last two weeks I've been working on my blogs, giving them make-overs of sorts. It would be much better and less frustrating if the page/text editor actually co-operated. Numerous times the editor wouldn't work as it should and so, I had to try and figure things out through HTML and I am so not good with this! Anyhow, I still have more to do, especially with Creative Corner, but I'm pausing to post for a change. This poem can be sung, if one knows the... read more »

Outcast

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie! ♥Since this poem only covers the issue of being treated as an outcast, I wanted to expand further about it and similar situations and try to offer some sort of useful/helpful information or guidelines to counteract when others treat us badly. So, at the end of this post I've added some of my additional thoughts and probably a bit lengthy for some or perhaps, many, but it's written with my sincere intention to help and/or encourage others who are being or have been tr... read more »

Jack pines, the poetry of Horace & three lesson...

Jack pines are a common occurrence in landscapes that come into focus and then fade away. And their raggedy, weird solemnity was made famous in the iconic painting "The Jack Pine" by Canadian painter Tom Thomson.On spring mornings, Jack pine shapes align well with Horace's verses Diffugere nives (Ode VII, book IV).Here is the beginning of this poem, a poem which for centuries has run havoc in the classical departments of universities around the globe: "The snow has fled, grass is coming back to the fiel... read more »

A Face in the Darkness

Legs blocked the walkway of the bottom bleacher. The vacant dark corner across the gymnasium beckoned Allie to come hither and hide in the shadows it provided. No one knew her; she had remained as faceless now as she had on the first day at this school. Coming to this dance was a mistake. Who Read More read more »

On The Bat's Back

My day was supposed to take on a well planned course.But here it is - thanks to social media compliments of Twitter - it is now going in a completely different direction.It's going "on the bat's back".Checked Twitter this morning pour prendre l'air, as the French say - or in layman's terms - just to beat a bit around the virtual bushes and found out that #ShakespeareSunday is trending.It is Shakespeare's anniversary's today, as it has constantly been over the past 400 years this time of the year...so wh... read more »

Teaching Poetic Devices Using Impostor Poems

Sometimes when I teach poetry I get caught up in getting my students to understand what a poem means and neglect how poetic devices help create that meaning. Diction, syntax, rhyme all of these are tools poets use in their writing. But how can we get students to understand how they work? One way is [] The post Teaching Poetic Devices Using Impostor Poems appeared first on David Rickert. read more »

Hibernare

Scriu fiindcă nu este prima oară Când mă trezesc târziu muncit precum o moară Și uit, și macin, și nu m-oprește iară Decât luna mămoasă la început de seară. Și vreau să-ți povestesc dicționare-ntregi Despre ce-am făcut azi, numai că am doar zeci, Nu sute de cuvinte: vocabular de mut. Ziua s-a terminat, parcă nici Continuă să citești Hibernare read more »

Incomplete Love

You were like an angel when we did meet, You swept me away off my feet. You held me close and hugged me tight, And planted on my cheek a kiss so light! You came to my ear and whispered to me, Never in this life will I ever leave thee. Our love, you said, was so gentle and pure, Forever and always all darkness it shall endure. 'You are my princess', you always said, I smiled with pride, your eyes I read The eyes that sparkled like the stars above, The eyes that spoke of nothing but Love. Ou... read more »

the candle breaks, tears. (sunday photo fiction).

Wear your best Victorian dress. Latch the white pearls your great Grandmother wrapped [in an old, white cloth] for you since your Mother has become too old to wear it. Hold your thick, brown hair with the wood crafted pin your beloved Father handed—he would have loved the view of his daughter’s beauty. If the Continue reading "the candle breaks, tears.

some perfect disappearance;

You became dry when you returned. Your eyes searched the white walls for the drawings of our significance, but your found remorse instead. You would smoke when you could not eat, drink vodka when you could not think, and sing hollow songs when you could not breathe. In the slowest manner of time, you set Continue reading "some perfect disappearance;" read more »

the wanderer lost her wonders;

I met a woman who loved stardust, but in the clouds—evaporating and pure smokes. She touched my lips, but never kissed it. She looked at me without seeing me. She locked her fingers on to mine, but it was lifeless. She smiled at me, but it was empty. In the lifetime I knew her, her [] read more »

the morning curtains;

You ran your tongue over the space between my breasts. I held on to your hair as you licked the lush peaks of my body. My knees buckled and I rounded my legs around your hips. Your arousal dipped into my slick wet lips below. My teeth trembled as I repressed a gratifying shout. All [] read more »

somewhere we could still meet;

We drove to the most conscious-deprived town with our windows down and two lit-up cigarettes. We spoke silence as we let the speakers sang the song that could have been the words we had been looking for. There were occasional glances, but nothing more than a fierce stare. I was hoping for some locked fingers, [] read more »

the last time we happened;

We had not yet converse into one of our routines. The last time happened years ago; you might, as well, have forgotten about it. The hums of the tall dark trees or the floating fish on the surface of the red sea. The white tears of the rain or the broken voices of the waterfalls. [] read more »

it was a young experience.

It was a quiet dining room. We were miles apart, seating on the chairs in the two ends of the round table. There was an ignored electric fusion over our heads, but we kept slicing the broccoli as if it could repress the rage of the night. “You didn’t have to show up tonight at [] read more »

this morning, the sun burned the sky.

My chest rose and fell as I gasped for air. I ran from the metro’s stairs down to the train’s cab—almost bending the turnstile pole. I would be late again for work if I did not storm through the place. The cab was already filled with people—we looked like sardines, but blessed enough to still [] read more »
