Sandra Martyres Poems

1.
Down Memory Lane - In A Local Train

It was a trip down memory lane
My journey on a Mumbai local train
Boarding the Ladies Compartment
I managed to land a window seat
...

2.
A Humble Poetic Tribute

Just a word of sincere thanks
To a friend I met on PH
One to whom I owe a huge debt
Not of the current toxic variety
...

Cinderella

It’s Midnight my love
Its time for me to disappear
And leave behind my
Golden slipper
...

A Mysterious Neighbour

Sprightly and very much alive
For someone seventy-five
Wearing her trade mark sunglasses
To hide any trace of wrinkles
...

5.
A Banker's Prayer

Dear God,
Let our borrowers pay us back
We can take no more flack
We have to remain on track

I can't paint at all, but it would be so easy for me to paint a portrait of Sandra; I would merely draw a large open Heart supported on two strong legs, that aren't afraid to take a stand. But I can do much more with words, so I would like to say that Sandra is the sweetest person, without any discernible ego; she is always kind and ready to listen to anything you have to say, and I only wish she wasn't so durn far away! (had to sneak a little rhyme there in at the end; it's in my blood what can I say..)

We are extremely fortunate to have Sandra Martyres on this site as, she as an Economist, is able to bring financial matters to light for us. Not only is she an economist, but has excellent English skills having come from a background where her Father who was so well versed in Latin and English, made sure his daughter was too! What does this have to do with poetry? An excellent vocabulary assists Sandra to write with wit, humor, satire and style. Sandra also writes great Senryu and Haiku and being so observant with world events and what makes people tick, her narrative style of poetry is so very well worth reading too. Sandra has become a dear friend to me, and a lady with a kind and generous heart. Thank you Sandra for your gift of words. love Karin Anderson
