Savita Tyagi Poems

He had a poet's heart
When he melted with pain at the sight of a wounded bird
Like an ice cube melting in summer's heat
The helpless eyes of grieving bird's mate

Sometime I wish I had a piano
In a long list of wishes may be another addition
Or if my pen was a piano key
On lazy afternoons of summer

Loved to write as far back as memory goes
Without any thought for a verse to compose

Poetic expressions of innate creativity

Night is stygian sans of stars
Dark mood shares kinship
With black sky of new moon
Moon's jubilant child I am shedding

Words are like flowers.
Each one gives its own fragrance,
And imparts its own beauty.

Endowed with knowledge we
Acquire the power of a counselor.

Cultivating equanimity we

Sitting under the Banyan tree I watch the water hitting its raised roots
Restless and agitated as a disturbed mind.
It's effervescence matching my own state of mind.
On the sun baked land the Banyan tree stands alone in silent meditation.

I dream of climbing the mountains
Yet avoid the uphill battle of
Neighborhood streets!

A friend wrote a Chinese proverb,
Said 'she strongly believes in it.'

"An invisible thread connects those

When searching for solutions,
Intellect can be as great an obstacle
As our emotional being,
If it prefers to construct its own truth

In languid surroundings
A sense of disconnect takes over
I sit in aimless complacency
Time floats away in blue sky.

Beautiful is the moon, just before
The night of full moon. Specially if
One can watch it late at night or
Early morning in the western sky.

Thanks for beautiful blue skies
Thanks for fragrant air silently filling the garden
Thanks for colorful fall leaves
Swirling and dancing through air even in their demise

It is not enough to have our own identity.
Our individuality is just one layer, a small brick
In a multilayered cosmic structure.
We are part of a bigger world,

A small butterfly
Hovers upon Jasmine,
As white and delicate as
It's petals.

Morning snow
Serene, silent and joyous,
Falling with a slant
Like silvery strings of wire

Fall evening turns in to night.
As the darkness descends
It stares at me through blinds.
I leave the blinds open to touch it back.

To know thyself through aesthetic
Turn every act into an augury,
Only then you can see
‘The world in a grain of sand,

Dawn! splash your colors upon my heart.
Let your aspirations engrave in my words.

Morning breeze! breath life in my despair

An affable desire rising from deeps of my heart
To search for a point where you and I can meet
A segue from rift to harmony
A soft touch, a moment of peace

Savita Tyagi Biography

I was born and raised in India. After my marriage I came to U.S. It wasn't until my children grew up that I turned back to my love of reading and writing again. This time medium was a foreign language- English. Though I mostly write in English I still love to read Hindi and also our ancient Sanskrit poetry. To this day this ancient as well as new age poetry draws me with same passion. This fusion and enrichment some time reflects in whatever little I have been able to write and share with you. I am very thankful to everybody who has taken time to read my poems. Without your support I couldn't have done it. A big thank you to all who encouraged me to keep writing with their wonderful comments. I also have a blog 'When Thoughts Get Wings.' I have two self-published collection of poems. Back Yard Poetry and Sitting On The Wellhead. Besides that my poems have been published in numerous anthologies and magazines. Few notable names: South Asian Poetry Review- in cooperation with University of Pittsburgh, Cuckoo In Crisis- in cooperation with IIT Roorkee, India. I have contributed many poems to an literary organization 'Poets Around The World' created by Fabrizio Frosini. Most of my poems are on PH for poetry lovers to enjoy.)

The Best Poem Of Savita Tyagi

A Poet's Heart

He had a poet's heart
When he melted with pain at the sight of a wounded bird
Like an ice cube melting in summer's heat
The helpless eyes of grieving bird's mate
Turned his heart's cries into verses of poetry
This famous story is an inspiration
For poets around the world

On rainy days a poet's imagination streams and floats
Like a little paper boat in gushing rainwater
It giggles and laughs with little children
Playing in rainwater
It captures the adventures of a raindrop
Falling in puddles of city streets
Floating through winding alleys
And walkways to settle in creek bed

A poet's eyes notice the forehead of young women
Working in rice paddies
And sees the sweat shimmer like dew drops
To offers cool relief to their sun burnt faces
The flame of life burning in their soul
Registers in his song

In winter his voice slips and slides on the frozen lake
And dances with the moon light beams

Spring brings a blossoming to his heart
Like a bee he goes from flower to flower
Seeking the meaning of life in their tender love
His songs are carried away on the wings of humming bird
He renders his life for the sake of love
Like a moth falling on the burning candle wick

Limitless are the imaginations of a poet's heart
And vivid are sketches unveiling the mystery of this world

This poet's heart hidden in all
Goes unnoticed unexplored
Shrouded in vague thoughts
Like running water under ice
When we relish and rejoice
In life around us
And learn to recreate it in our words
The veil lifts off

If I could catch the flicker of a thought
Dancing in my head
That would touch the heart
Mine as well as yours
And is as inspiring and revealing of my world
As the golden rays of dawn
Longing to pen it on paper
I too knock on poet's world.

Emotions are to a poet what sky is to birds, of depth and vastness to venture and explore in limitless mental flights.

Pure innocence is love's best abode.

Motherhood is soul's tender expression 'Cause her love is ordained by Nature.

"Recognizing and utilizing strength and innate traits of one's personality is the best thing an individual can do."

Nothing lasts forever but a pleasure of 'little while' renews reading a beautiful poem again.

One who believes in force of Love is never alone.

Mother Nature is ruthless in destroying what She creates. Humans are two steps ahead of her.

Adore the Nonexistence It has given you Existence.

The only thing predictable about life is that it is unpredictable, The only truth about life is that eventually all becomes false.

If too many people are taking on poetry, have they become more contemplative or more lonely, I wonder!
