I have paid my tributes to my friend Yoonoos Peerbocus.. through a poem...hope all at PH like it and join me in remembering a PH member for his beautiful poetry which he has left behind as he passed away recently....

In memory of Yoonoos Peerbocus

I remember- My first timid venture at PH that
Hailed his first comment for this unknown being-
Words of inspiration, acquainting a humble guide;
And behold for me, a new vista opened-
A new space that thrived on poets:
Amateurs like me and beacons like him.

Then I read his languid poetry- and felt
How futile the words of mine were, and
How undeserved my meagre expressions
Oh! The view I got of this world anew-
Through his poetic sight, thus expanding
My poor vision, to zones unexplored.
Yes, he was the guiding star
Steering me with his kind zeal and
Precious feedback that led me ahead.

I remember-His rustic, simple, yet grandeur of poetry and
The humble moments that were transformed
Into emotional revelations, through words like
Pure streams of wisely gems or melody recited.

So fortunate I feel to have known his poetry-
Bless the souls that reared him;
Bless the souls that are his legacy;
Bless his soul that granted us-
The beauty of his thoughts.

Alas! The void of his ingenuity
Now will never be filled-
As he has transcended
From his breathing cage,
And resides now, where he hears us not-
Yet with a sad heart, I pray-
May you rest in peace dearest friend;
May your lullaby be the breeze of Jannah;
May the celestial angels await your arrival-
At the gate of the heavenly abode.

As for we poor earthly souls
We will cherish the bounty
Of your poetic treasure –
Forever and ever......

    So sorry to hear of Yoonoos's passing. His poetry possessed a unique style that validated his obvious passion for writing. He and a I exchanged messages and reads from time to time. He always struck me as a gentle man with strict social morals....a rare find, indeed, these days. Thank You for sharing this information with the forum. I will miss his work as well as his kind way ~FjR~
