My encounter with poetry was sudden. I didnt write a single poem till 2007. It was the fatal year when I happened to be bedridden for about four months. Obviously I was quite depressed. To while away my time, I started scribbling something and I felt what I wrote made sense and that was my first poem-The Great Escape. It was making myself convinced that my life was not meant to be languished in despair. It had such poignancy and depth of feeling..as it came directly from my heart!

Sensitive by nature, small things can excite me. Nature with her myriad faces has been my greatest inspiration. I am tied down to my family and with moderate comforts, I am happy in life. Retired from a... more »

    Hmm.... I feel greatly honored by your comment.... What I have stated in my biography is true to the last detail. I haven't written a single poem till 2007. Now I feel so fortunate to hear such sweet words from people like you.... all by God's grace! Thank you dear friend. Glad to have got acquainted with you!

    You are simply superb and extraordinarily elegant at choosing the right word in a poem at the right place.
    It does not seem that you came so late to this world of poetry...rather you are born into our world for this noble deed. I am glad that I have someone here on this planet from whose poems I can derive poetic inspirations.

    I am extolled to such great height,
    When you call me a ‘guiding light’.
    I read this with some fright
    Mingled with waves of delight

    Thank you so much sweet friend..... Loke!

    Poetess like you are but a few
    Privileged are those who’re friends with you
    And it’s not just your delightful writes
    For many you’d been a guiding light

    Valsa is POWERFUL AND ENORMOUS IN POETRY.
    She is fine and strong and currently publishes more on Hello Poetry.
    I call her the MOTHER OF POETRY.
    Her poems are immensely and enormously rich and she is a Professor too.

Best Poem of Valsa George

Poet

Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod
He reigns, monarch in Fancy's domain
Sketching life in fanciful colour and mode

Which with pain and strife fraught
Or bright with gaiety and grace
In finer yarn than the gossamer thread
On the fabric of words in befitting verse

He steals away from the noisy crowd
In to the stillness of the cloistered cell
To dwell with Fancy's mystic charms
Weaving downy dreams at will

He recounts forgotten tales of yore
Of bloody battles won and lost,
Of lovers united, amour defiled, ...
