    She paid me in the kind of pennies that change hands when someone says PENNY FOR YOU THOUGHTS. I pay the thoughts forward and there is a shower of pennies from Heaven.

    I am humbled after reading through your poetry. Your poetic voice has a subtle soft ring to it as I read. At some parts the writing is conversational, and at others, I sense pure poetry at its best, with seamless meter, rhythm, alliteration and imagery. Metaphor and deeper meaning can easily be found by the reader, yet the writing doesn't hammer that in....which I like. The paths traveled by the speaker are much different from my own, which enables me (the reader) to go on a small adventure with each poem I read. The author's notes are of interest, but the style of writing enables the reader to also seek their own connections.

Visiting Kalakshetra Foundation, Chennai

A song session under a banyan tree begins the day
Girls in moth-wing saris, young men in white tunics
Disperse to cottage-style classrooms in a forest
Students follow after their teachers, learning by ear
Soaking up the song cycles of Ghandarvaveda music
Devotional strains ring out in this secular school
Art is the vehicle, so a wanderer like me feels at home
As Bach's chorales made me Christian at least in sympathy
Now I peek into the dance theater, roofed in thatch
Bharatanayam dancers are going through basic steps
Bodies and heads tilt as if guided by inner ...

Thought-farmer keeps many aquaculture tanks,
Draws water from his own well to fill them,
He pours in his tinctures and starters
Ladles liquids to keep the level constant.

In one tank grows a patient corner piece
In another a window frame opens its eye,
One has shingles willing to overlap against weather,
In one are hinges that only love to swing.
