My encounter with poetry was sudden. I didnt write a single poem till 2007. It was the fatal year when I happened to be bedridden for about four months. Obviously I was quite depressed. To while away my time, I started scribbling something and I felt what I wrote made sense and that was my first poem-The Great Escape. It was making myself convinced that my life was not meant to be languished in despair. It had such poignancy and depth of feeling..as it came directly from my heart!

Sensitive by nature, small things can excite me. Nature with her myriad faces has been my greatest inspiration. I am tied down to my family and with moderate comforts, I am happy in life. Retired from a... more »

    Souren...... I feel greatly honored and am overwhelmed by your comment! You are the one who seem to fulfill T.S Eliot's vision of poetry to include in its periphery the entire literature of of Europe from Homer to the present. I am awed by your knowledge of literature at this young age! Thank you!

    Valsa George is perhaps one of the finest poets you would find in Poemhunter. Her poems range from incredible limmericks that would make you smile to poems with a spiritual vein to the ones deeply enriched in literary references. In my humble opinion, she truly has what T. S. Eliot considered to be one of the most essential aspect of writing poetry, that is the 'entire literature of Europe from Homer to present' in her bones. Read her poems for a good contemplation as well as pleasure. Her comments are always kind as she does not go along to dissect a poem to an extreme but tries to understand what the poet intended to convey with perfection. I have had the great luck of both reading her poems, commenting on them as well as receive her valuable critiques (never criticisms) . May she continue to make us smile, cry, and contemplate and of course, enlighten us with her bright and beautiful poetry.

    Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community ma'am.. We all are grateful to you..

    This poem is written just for you
    This is the right time and it’s due

    Not meant to be shared
    For my heart be laid bare
    To thank you for kindness shown

    A lovely star of India burning bright
    Prods me along like a guiding light
    My gratitude can’t be expressed in words

    Your kind comments push me on
    When my interest was almost gone
    Now I have more fun because of you

    So with a heart sincere
    I hold you as a friend dear
    Thank you very much Valsa George

    Loke Kok,

    Your words mean so much to me
    They leave me so full of glee
    In you, I see a sincere friend
    On whom, I feel I can depend................ Thanks a lot!

  • Loke Kok Yee (9/29/2015 1:44:00 AM)

    My words may not mean much,
    but it comes from the heart.
    Reading your poems each day,
    will take all my blues away.
    Your poetry sometimes funny,
    although at times they're sad.
    They always make my day sunny,
    and happier if I may add.

    Ms. Valsa George, Madam of all seasons, write poetry with heart and Limerick with mind, Haikus are terse.
    subject - common, writing- pure, words - wise. I follow your poems and waits for Limerick like crane on one leg waits for fish. Thanks for sharing your poems. May Almighty keep you hale and healthy to write many more poems.

Best Poem of Valsa George

Poet

Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod
He reigns, monarch in Fancy's domain
Sketching life in fanciful colour and mode

Which with pain and strife fraught
Or bright with gaiety and grace
In finer yarn than the gossamer thread
On the fabric of words in befitting verse

He steals away from the noisy crowd
In to the stillness of the cloistered cell
To dwell with Fancy's mystic charms
Weaving downy dreams at will

He recounts forgotten tales of yore
Of bloody battles won and lost,
Of lovers united, amour defiled, ...
