    Jyotsana, even for ESL poetry, Mohla's poems are pretty awful! Admirable sentiments chopped into lines and riddled with ESL errors do not make for a pleasant reading experience. I can't understand why you and your ESL compatriots don't write poetry in your first language. Why the bias toward English? Your own cultural background, your own language, I'm certain they're rich enough to produce good poetry? If you're so desperate to write poems in English, get a good native English poet to translate your first language poems into English. We'll all be happier.
