Living My Best @46

They say age is just a number. I probably am the living testament to that. At 46, it seemed that my life has just begun. At the age when most people would think of retirement and going somewhere secluded to spend the rest of their remaining days, I haven’t thought myself of that yet. For why would I? In 2 years I published 6 books and 3 out of these books are AMAZON BEST – SELLERS and 1 was AMAZON and KOBO’s NUMBER 1 NRW RELEASE in less than 24 hours of its release. No reason for retirement or slowing down yet. Not at all…. and yes, you probably heard the buzz by now, my 7th book will be out very SOON.

They say you get lucky when it’s your birthday. I again probably am the living testament to that. June has been very very good to me. I am blessed with so many good things these past days:

I was featured in 3 (three magazines – Entrepreneur Stories, TheUpdateIndia, and the Daily Beat) in recognition of my works and my upcoming book.

I had 2 poems published in Spillwords NYC

I had a poem published in MastecadoresUsa

Another poem is coming out in Mastecadores India

Hardcover copies of 4 out of my 6 books are now available due to public demand.

I am part of an award-winning ensemble of authors and poets around the world through an Anthology titled, WOUNDS I HEALED: THE POETRY OF STRONG WOMEN currently still NUMBER 1 on AMAZON

And I have my 7th book coming out very soon

I am the placid water in the lake
quiet, calm, still, and tranquil
I admire the beauty of the moonlight
carefully gazing upon the earth
bringing magic,
to the even-tempered night

I am the soft wind that blows perfectly
upon the meadows,
where birds could hover freely watching
butterflies transfer pollen grains
from flower to flower

I am the placid water and the soft wind
and I love, I love you; a love that is quiet and calm, still and tranquil
I love, I love you; a soft love
and perfect, gentle, and free

above all

I am the clock that
strikes midnight, where I could be
in the silence of your dreams
in the comfort of your memory


I love you, a love
where tranquility resides
and peace is abundant

Poet’s Heart

to write is to dream

and to dream is to write

wide awake or

deep asleep

a poet’s heart dreams

forging a link

a link

between the

imagery and symbolism

and the power of words

creative sparks fly

love lives

hope survives

the universe agrees

to what the poet’s heart’s desires

my poet heart desires

no one but you

“when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”, The Alchemist, 2006


NaPoWriMo Day 6 –

Our prompt yesterday asked you to take inspiration from another poem, and today’s continues in the same vein. This prompt, which comes from Holly Lyn Walrath, is pretty simple. 

Go to a book you love. Find a short line that strikes you. Make that line the title of your poem. Write a poem inspired by the line. Then, after you’ve finished, change the title completely.


Your Hello

what is with your “hello,” dear?
that I so long desired to hear

a kind of hello, i used to adore
whenever you’re up and close by the door

the hello that awakened my soul
fulfilled my true heart’s impulse

a kind of hello, i missed and longed for
regardless of the millions i heard over

the hello that soothed my heart
numbed my thoughts, made me forget

a kind of hello, i used to admire and desire
for it echoed your love and passion, I swear

what is with your “hello,” dear?
’twas you saying, I love you, I’m sure

Happy World Poetry Day

Not You, My Love

the gentle tide
may turn into
a raging wave

but not you my love,

may turn
into nightmares

but not you my love,

wounds may hurt
and become
lasting scars

but not you my love,

love may fade away
but i believe
yours won’t

no, not yours my love,

some may lose
a battle, go home

but not you my love,
never really you
for you champion
and perfected
the art of winning

My Baby Blue Eyes

7th in the series of ” tell me your song, i’ll write you a poem”

My Baby Blue Eyes

I was a small town girl with big dreams in store,
a small town girl with looks entirely different from yours,
and in a game of probability,
what were the odds
that i would have you, my baby blue eyes?
chances are, it’s one in a million
and i might not have even been part of that one million

for there are over a hundred million beautiful women in the planet who I knew then for sure existed,
and in that over a hundred million beautiful women, I might not have even been part of it yet,
as I literally lived on the other side of your world, and in a game of probability,
what were the odds
that i would have you , my baby blue eyes?

but by some universal powers, we did not just meet, we fell in love
and not just fell in love, we fell hopelessly, romantically, deeply in love, and
the moment, the moment you laid your blue eyes on mine, my world stopped,
my heart fluttered, my mind went crazy
I knew then it was you, it was you
I wanted to spend the rest of my life with

it wasn’t easy though, as some foolish people tried to break us apart
maybe because of your totally amazing blue eyes, or it could also be my total brown eyes, they said we were diffirent
of course we are, there’s no denying
but our differences made us completely
compatible, amazing how we could be
different yet the same

its been many years, my love, and in those many years we’ve witnessed the growth of our love, our love that has become stronger each passing day,
and i can’t help but wonder,
did the universe conspire for us to be together?
or were we concieved and born for each other?

my love, the answer lies in the eyes of
two beautiful halves, two souls, two lives
born out of love, of two different people
from two different worlds apart
joined by fate, by destiny, by love
or maybe, yes maybe we were indeed
really born for each other

for that, I thank God for the day we were born for each other

Born for You- David Pomeranz

A Hundred Million Love Songs

A Hundred Million Love Songs

there are over a hundred million

love songs 

and I could dedicate each for you 

each and everyday

for you are my greatest love

the poetry I write

and the melody of my heart

there are over a hundred million

love songs

and I could sing each one for you

each and everyday

for when I think of you

I think of the greatest love song

ever written

there are over a hundred million

love songs

and I could mash them up for you

each and everyday

for when I see you

I see nothing but a collection of the 

greatest hits the world 

has fallen in love with over the years

there are over a hundred million

love songs

and I could have them as our song

each and everyday

for you remind me of not one

not just one , but of all the beautiful

love songs of yesteryears and today

‘cos baby “no one’s ever touched me like the way you touch me”, that for me 

is pure magic, pure love

in a song, your song, my song

our song

(You Are the Love of My Life -by Roberta Flack, George Benson)

This is one of the most iconic love songs of the 80s. I was a little girl then, but I heard it often played on the radio.

Kate’s Friday Fun is about icon – an icon or an emblem are often used to define 
a place, a movement, tribe, religion or business.

I chose to share this song along with my poem because I believe love in any form/s remains to be the best “icon”, the best symbol humanity has ever had over the years. And songs as well as poems are and will forever be one of the greatest expressions of love.

A Snowflakes of Thank You

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”

– Ashley Smith

I believe in dreams, and I see the good in even the worst situation; I think these are the traits that put me to where I am today. I never stop dreaming, and I dream the biggest dreams, I also never stop believing that something good will ever happen out of even the messiest, most terrible situation. 

2020 started with a big bang for us as a family. I remembered we were in Bali for the holidays then. It was one of the most unforgettable travels we’ve ever made as a family. 

Then pandemic happens. 

There was already a rumor about a certain virus, even back in December 2019; but we just dismissed the idea (I am sure everybody did).

But, barely three months after, the inevitable happened. 

Pandemic happens.

The world stopped (literally). 

In the course of the first three months, our lives changed. Travelling became impossible (until it became restricted), work became difficult (until others lost their jobs), everyone became sick (until others died, may they rest in peace). Social distancing became the new norm and, online communications/transactions became the new trend to keep updated and be posted. 

While the world was/is in agony and while humanity was/is in a war over the deadliest and most contagious virus our generation ever had encountered, I kept my hope and my silence in the comfort of my room – writing. My poetry and blogger and writer friends have been my constant companion (aside of course from my loving family) all these months. 

Pandemic happens. And it gave birth to the “best of me”.  My first international poetry submission happened during the pandemic and so is my first ebook,  ” After Rain Skies” (a spin-off sort of, of my physical book “After Rain Skies: A Million Stars”). I did not allow the pandemic to topple down my spirit, much more allow my muse to wander along.  ” After Rain Skies” was received so well by the online reading community, that I had to follow it up immediately with another ebook, “What If Snowflakes Don’t Fall in Winter?”.  It was released via KOBO yesterday, and I am very proud and very happy to share with you all that on its first day it went on the “trending list’, in all three categories to which the book belongs: 1. Trending in ebook, 2. Trending in Fiction and Literature and 3.Trending in Romance. 

I’d like to thank you all for the love and support you have given me and my poetry since 2013. WordPress has been and will always be my writing family. I have made friends here and I have met a few too from WordPress and it’s really wonderful. You have been my constant writing companion. Your honest and kind words of encouragement helped me the poet that I am now. I will forever be grateful to you. For some of you who have purchased my ebooks, you would know that I dedicated a page for the list of WP friends there to thank. 

Thank you all so much for the LOVE and SUPPORT.

I Love You, At First

I Love You, At First

you walked past by me wearing a dashing smile
with the sun so hot and up, but the air was cool
could it be, because of your easy-breezy presence, I was beguiled?
or was it just me feeling the numbness of my senses I could drool?

your smile I can’t forget and your laughter I can’t resist
baby take me in your arms and hold me all the time
‘cos I don’t wanna live another day without you, I insist
please kiss me, undress me, make me yours
it’s not a crime

the next thing they knew you and I were inseparable,  profoundly connected
we were like two people beating in perfect harmony as one
the world was only ours to live and friends  said “it’s expected”
‘cos even without a word the universe will conspire to agree, “it’s done”

it feels like Christmas with you beside me all the time
the joys and laughter we share each day long
makes it always look like a holiday season perfect anytime
the sweet little nothings make our bond greater and strong

 now I keep thinking of you and what to do with our life as we kissed
for there is so much forever waiting for my dear, a forever in time
‘cos I don’t wanna live another day without you, I insist
please kiss me, undress me, make me yours
it’s not a crime

 it’s been many years and many Christmases, my dear
but time has not robbed my feelings for you, I still love you tight
it will forever be like that, oh so hot but cool morning, I swear

the first time I laid eyes on you, I knew I loved you
