I am a 55 years old ship captain, poetry has been the bane of my life ever since I was a young lad - good poetry has been the anchor of my life too. I used to write prose and never published my poems for fear till while on poemhunter I was encouraged by the Hon'able Ms Nivedita Bagchi.
I live in NOIDA near Delhi and love country music, good poetry, cooking, dogs and garlic.
Dulce Et, Decorum Est, Pro Patria Mori
Its sweet and proper to die for one's country
Blood looks violet on fresh snow
Teach your Children Well
Teach them All your dreams
Children are small kites
They try to soar high and
Memories mostly make for
The strangest of dreams-
Those that more often than not tend to go awry,
Making the silly mind wonder
Bacchus? ? ?
Why do they call you that?
My answer is straight and flat
Once a simple soul comes into your arms
