(1) A Friendship Bridge

Rating: 3.5
You made me love the teachings of Tagore.
My thoughts were mesmerized by your sitar.
I kept the little flowers from India,
Artfully pressed to span a century.

Creative journeys never really end.
Our era is a lamp that still burns on.
I send some thoughts like flowers overseas
Their fragrance will outlast both you and me.
Your world class mind inspires me every day

One of if not the most talented Poetesses that shared her work on this site. Her passing was a loss to this site and for me a personal loss as Sandra was as good of a friend as she was an extraordinary wordsmith.~FjR~

Your endeavors to build a friendship bridge from west to east are really admirable! I am a newcomer to this site. I just had a glance through your poems and was highly impressed. In course of time I will take time to read more of them. Meanwhile I would like you to know that a selection of my poems too has been posted on this site. I would request you to kindly visit the same, at your convenience, and give me your valuable comments on some of them.

One day I was sitting in my garden I looked up and you were there. I wondered how. So it was on the friendship bridge you arrived. No matter how you got here dear Bodhi Sattva that you are here is what makes my soul sing. Love Always Paddy

THE POET HAS NO BARRIER, ALL BECOME HIS ADMIRER. YOU HAVE LEARNT TAGORE'S TEACHING, FOR YOU I HAVE A FEELING. TAGORE HAS UNIVERSAL NATIONHOOD, HE LEFT HIS CREATION FOR GOOD. HIS TEACHING GIVES YOU ENJOYMENT, IT'S YOUR GREAT ACHIVEMENT.

Eternity in the rosary beeds bound A thread through them in poetry found; Poets not bound by time and place Universal brotherhood in them blaze. Shakespeare to Ganhi sang songs of the soul, You build bridges to weave them into whole. CP
