My poem “marry me” published by KashmirPen Newspaper.
midnight suspends itself on a rock wall the Hands of Fatima knit shades of blue over the valley sounds, chirps of migratory birds flutter of old keys hidden in lonely drawers run with me and let’s get married the forest speaks…

Wonderful job done!!!
Thank you, Judy!
Sigh…your imagery leaves me speechless! Congratulations!!
You always have beautiful words for me. I am so grateful to you. Thank you so much 🙂
Sometimes the beauty of your words leaves me tongue tied!
My pleasure, my friend. 🙂❤️
You are so sweet. I do not know what to say anymore. Love and hugs to you, my dear
A wonderful poem, Gabriela. “The flutter of keys in lonely drawers” suggests to me the desire to escape from loneliness and also the unlocking of assion held captive, although perhaps the latter is a little fanciful on my part. The idea of pregrant stars to me speaks of actual human birth, or at least the possibility of such. Best – Kevin
My Dear Kevin,
Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Many thanks for your beautiful comment too. Those are the things that I had in mind when I wrote this poem. You read me well.
Enjoy your afternoon. I hope everything is well.
Thanks, Gabriela. All is well, and I hope all is good with you also. You too, enjoy your afternoon – Kevin
Skin-tinglingly beautiful, you’ve captured such exhilaration and promise.

Love and hugs back to you. You have such talent
Thank you. So do you. I enjoy your poetry tremendously.
Wow – this absolutely gorgeous – looks like you wrote it keeping Kashmir on mind❤️
Thank you, Shantanu. I am so glad you enjoyed it. Keeping Kashmir in mind. What makes you think so?
My pleasure. Fatima, the valley all sounded like that place 😊
Haha! That’s true. What about the shawl ? Have you ever visited Kashmir?
Yeah and the shawl too. Yes I have. I have lived for about 4 years in Jammu
It is beautiful as they say?
Beyond beautiful 🌸😊
Wow. exquisite Beyond beautiful.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Probably you do not remember but you were my second follower two years ago when I started blogging. I had nobody: no friends, no followers. During my two years of blogging your constant support meant the world to me. It still does. I really want you to know that.
Looking forward to reading your books 🙂
Have a great weekend.
Yes, I do remember following you when you started your site. You have come a long way. I don’t always comment as people get used to comment and it is like living near the mountains or an ocean. At first everything is new and exciting but then we become. Congratulations with all of your publishings. You deserve it. Be well my friend. Joseph
When I started my site I was going through a lot of pain. I was only trying to make something beautiful out of that pain that truth be told is still with me. Your constant support brought a ray of sunshine in my life (comments or not).
Thank you for the congrats and for your kind words.
Be well too
The Phoenix always rises from the ashes. From pain writing is the best.
I found that out 🙂
Thank you, Devika 🙂
Thank you, Bojana.
congratulations! you poem is just lovely! 🙂
Thank you so much, dear 🙂
you are very welcome, i am so happy for you!
Congrats to YOU again. You are amazing. Really. I am assuming that those are your beautiful feet in the photo.
Thank you! My feet? lol. One never knows.
You are welcome.
Oh! This lush and verdant scene actually made a sigh escape my body.
frantic crickets play the violins of dusk
steel a star and set it on my finger
This might be the most romantic thing I’ve ever read.
Xoxo and …. Sigh…
Hello my dearest R,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
“the most romantic thing I’ve ever read.” That is so sweet of you to say.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Youre welcome from the bottom of my heart xoxo
Thank you so much!
such divine words my dear, I was transported by your words. congratulations on such a lovely recognition of your work
I am humbled by your comment, Gina. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
always my pleasure G
A wonderful poem.
Thank you so much, Luisa. Your words mean a lot to me.
Happy to see this work of art recognized for its beauty and depth. Like so many of your beautiful pieces, this masterpiece deserves all of the accolades, spotlights, and cherishment.
Dreamy and inspiring!
Thank you for the congrats and for the praise. You made me blush.
I hope your morning coffee ritual is going well. Bustelo? 🙂
And I hope you are making a lot of progress on your novel. Can’t wait to read it, Drew.
Wishing you a fabulous day.
P.S. Talking about morning rituals. I added more pills lol: Niagen. I am not sure what it does but if the MIT guys and the silicon valley guys are taking it I am all for 🙂
Ritual going very well. I have even added an afternoon expresso after lunch to my repertoire.
Yes, working very hard. Life and my new surroundings have me very inspired. I don’t think this honeymoon with Florida will ever end. I really feel as if I am finally home.
The poet with the perfect memory needs Niagen? Haha . When I hit post on my micro story The Experiment, you and your memory (and intelligence) crossed my mind. I am certain you are already using a greater percentage of your brain than most. Certainly more than this beach boy.
Not really a pill guy. I always search for alternate methods. For example, my solution to my sleep issues Yiruma. He is a South Korean-British pianist and composer. I ask Alexa to play him and his tranquil sounds knocks me right out.
Besides, if I took a pill for my memory or to sharpen my mnd….I would probably forget to take it. LOL
“I have even added an afternoon expresso after lunch to my repertoire.” Lovely.
“I really feel as if I am finally home.” I am very happy for you, Drew. Happy that you are working too.
“The poet with the perfect memory needs Niagen? Haha” Niagen is not for memory. Or is it? I told you I do not understand exactly what it does. I don’t do molecular biology 🙂
“When I hit post on my micro story The Experiment, you and your memory (and intelligence) crossed my mind” I am really flatter, Drew. Thank you.
“He is a South Korean-British pianist and composer. I ask Alexa to play him and his tranquil sounds knocks me right out.” That’s sounds beautiful. I’ll try it. Does it act upon the maternal DNA like the Niagen? Kidding.
“if I took a pill for my memory or to sharpen my mnd….I would probably forget to take it. LOL” That’s a problem. 🙂
Really happy that you feel home in Florida. I envy you. I hope somehow, someday I will return to the state of the eternal youth (or the sunshine state :))
Enjoy your afternoon, Drew.
Maternal DNA? Makes this Niagen deprived beach boy wonder if he has to congratulate you again? Niagen is good for improving cognitive function, a bit of anti-aging (which poets don’t need since we are forever young at heart), helps treat jet lag, and preventing cancer.
If it is in your heart you will return for sunshine and palm trees. Queue in Gloria Estefan’s Mi Tierra.
On a different note: What supplement do you suggest for enhancing creativity and poetry?
I am delaying the reply because I do not know how to answer your question.
I thought you were going to suggest mojitos.
Lol. You made me laugh and I am trying to work.
I suggest monasticism: renouncing worldly pursuits; full commitment to spiritual work. What do you say beach boy?
LOl . I think I will stick to being a struggling artist.
Ok, forget about what I said. I apologize.
What about being a glowing artist?
Willing to gived that a try. I believe the monk garb wouldn’t look good on the beach.
Go back to work. LOL . Have a wonderful evening.
Lol. You too.
Congratulations! love the images you conjure up, infusing the senses with a romance, yet never overdoing it.
Aw.. Thank you so much. I am thrilled you think so.
I hope all whales are well 🙂
Congratulations, dear G! Such beautiful words. ❤️❤️❤️
