Biography of Seema Chowdhury

My name is Seema Chowdhury. I am from Bangladesh. At present, I'm settled in Canada. I am married to the world's most caring person, Sunny, and blessed with two daughters Samia and Sameen. I started writing when I was 19 years old and now in the period of 27 years I have a huge collection of over 3400 poems.

My poems were published in USA, UK, Canada, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Philippines. I have received 8 awards from the USA and I was also the Ambassador of poetry for the year 2006 and 2007. I am also an artist and have done art and paintings in all media like the pencil sketch, watercolour and oil painting.

In January 2010 and February 2011, I participated in the Art exhibitions organized by Cape Breton University, Canada. Both were wonderful experiences for me. Three of my oil paintings were on exhibition under the title Bangladesh in 2010 and another three paintings in 2011 under the title Timeless Tales of Bangladesh for a month each time. I hope I can do this again soon. Caper Times also published my poems and art in 2010, it is a newsletter from the same university.

In January 2012, I participated in the Essay Competition organized by CBU and by the grace of God Almighty, I have won the Mary Keshen Award by the Department of Language and Letters. This has opened a new venue for me to depict my life's story from a different perspective.

World Poetry Movement published three of my poems. One in the Fall of 2011 and the other one in Spring of 2012 and then in 2013. I was also selected for the award of a Published Poet. In June 2015, I have presented an award from Poetry Nation for my contribution to contemporary American poetry. In Spring of 2016, my poem was published by Eber and Wein Publishers in Best poems of 2015. In December 2017, my poem Miraculous Scene of Amazing Autumn was published by Eber & Wein Publishing in the Best Poets of 2016.

I enjoy reading poems, verses and prose and like to write comments on them and also like my poems to be read and shared with other fellow poets. I am grateful to God Almighty for all his blessings and love that He constantly showers upon me, today and always.

A Prayer From Lord

Lord give me your love and peace of mind
Show me your path that is nice and kind
Because today i'm leaving all decisions on you
As you're the surest guide in my view

For me all doors are blocked right now
I don't know what, where and how
But candles of hope are dying down
And mistrust is ready to wear the crown
