    From what I've read so far, I think this poet deserves so much from us. I think that he shall be read in the centuries to come. I so much see a world where his poetry will be talked about in the classrooms. I see that he holds diction, rhyme, elegance, and wisdom in his poetry. Let me not forget detail too. He is a true lover of God that makes me wonder how the Lord shall receive him when he leaves us from this world. I only am sad that I hadn't heard of his poetry earlier than I should have. Anyway, I see brilliance also in his poetry. He holds no objections to any subjects that comes his way. I admire a poet that does that. I am a lover of poetry that has read so many poems. I have found another CREATIVE POET to talk about to my friends. I am fond of writers that are diverse, and I see that in this poet. His attitude towards every living thing is what really entices me to read some more of his poetry. He has a way with his pen, and he has a way with his thoughts. Delightful, are the words he uses in his poems. I am glad to have come across his poetry because I have been touched by it. Well, I've said so much about this PROFOUND POET that I don't think I've left anything out.

    Why blame the poor birds, Tomas?
    They get afflicted by diseases in innocent ways UNLIKE human beings who get HIV/AIDS!

    Dear 'Uncle' poet R.R.,
    I've created the free e-book as per your request.
    With regards,
    Dr John Celes

    Dr. John Celes,
    My dear friend, why can't you create a poetry e-book of yours, so that we can keep the treasure of your contribution to the poetry world in our computer and read it slowly, as it is time consuming. To read more than 1500 poems is not that much easy in a short time. Please create on e-book for my sake.
    Rajaram Ramachandran.

    Dear Pablo,
    Anyone is free to set or break any poetry record here! However, I do not think anyone can post more than a thousand Sonnets like I've done.That's my record.In case someone can go past it, I can always submit some more.May be, you had not read my biography leisurely!
    As a poet, one must neither feel jealous of others nor ridicule another fellow-poet! That's my principle.
    thank you for the info.
    Dr John Celes

    Dear Dr. John Celes

    About the topic of holding a record, in the number of submitted poems, as mentioned in your Biography section of this web site.

    Currently, Robert Rorabeck, pen name R.C. Abbekka
    is determined to break your record, in fact he already has.

    Though i can vouch personally,
    that it’s just a desperate attempt
    to etch his name in the Halls of Fame and recognition

    (though he really doesn’t care about anyone, except himself,
    and nosedives into profanities, just to fill the page, and his ego)

  • Pradeep Dhavakumar (2/1/2005 3:16:00 AM)

    Its no easy tast writing so many poems.I read some and they are simple and sweet.Congratulations and all the best for your records.

  • Dr John Celes Dr John Celes (12/12/2004 1:46:00 PM)

    Thanks Janet.
    I took the pen-name 'Dr John Celes' because i'm a physician/my christian Confirmation name is JOHN/people call me endearingly as 'Celes' for short/there is another person well-known called john celes already in history/John is the famous name of many good poets in english.However, I'm very proud of my original name as well which is rather long and i do write equally and post in my original name.but can anyone prevent the'gush that flows in your life of poetry from time to time'? It is not always that you find gems among your treasures! Thanks for your prayers.God knows how to award and reward his righteous souls.

  • Janet Mary Zylstra (12/10/2004 3:11:00 PM)

    As a Christian writer myself, I stand by Dr Celes' choice to expose himself and his faith in beautiful poetry to a world which today, as much as in Jesus' time, despises anything good, clean and pure. If you don't use your 'natural' name, it's
    probably because he has a certain consideration for the majority of us Westerners
    who cannot pronounce lengthy words in other languages. I too am a polyglot, but
    Indian languages did not make up part of my education. There is so much smut
    around that I do not believe anybody can write too many Christian, God praising
    poems. Keep up the good work. I'm praying for you.

Best Poem of Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Sonnet: A Lost Friendship

You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.

Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge ’midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.

What years of intimacy have been lost?
You’ve been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won’t your eyes see the true love in my heart?

Dear friend however,...

United Nations Day,2017

The only planet where man lives - the Earth
Is turning hostile, day by day for all;
Unsafe and insecure for every birth,
'Tis time all nations joined to stop this fall.

The UN born in nineteen forty-five
Has kept the peace across the globe somehow;
'Tis strange how flora, fauna keep alive
Despite some wars and hatred, lack of love.
