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 »

    Many of her works are timeless! ‘Poet’, ‘Dust Unto Dust’, ‘A Sudden Downpour’, ‘Winged Words’, ‘To My Anonymous Lover’, ‘A Song Of Hope’, ‘Eagle On Wings’ are some of her outstanding pieces of poetry! She has a significant contribution to the world of poetry! Her contribution to this august Poem Hunter site is noteworthy!

    Valsa George is a great poetess! I have read many of her poems and reviewed a few of them! Her poems are scholarly and the contents of the pieces of her poetry are loaded with wit and humor! Besides being a great poetess, she is a dynamic motivator of budding talents! Being a very meticulous reviewer, she interprets poems of fellow poets brilliantly through her beautiful comments!

    This is a humble reply to Jez Brul
    Today when your comment greeted me, I was amazed and taken aback! Please don't raise me to that level...! !
    . I don't deserve it...... However I assume that you admire and enjoy my poems. I am so happy about it! This knowledge is the greatest reward for a poet! Thank you so much! ! !

    I am studying your Fractured Identity with my year 9s tomorrow - please can you tell me where you were living and where you went back to? I'm assuming France and then back home -UK? India?

    Most humbly, i write this tribute to a great poetess -
    Valsa George.
    She is simply marvellous
    She holds the readers in her arms,
    And carries them into realm of heavenly terrain,
    Her language, style, metaphors and similies, are superb.
    Valsa is blessed and truly deserves to be an outstanding poetess of Poem Hunter.

    Merry Xmas and a wonderful 2018, Dear Valsa! .

    You're not dressed in gold; it's only when one scratches you they'll realize you're gold. I'm so lovingly dedicated to you for being a resurgent source of inspiration and encouragement, humble soul and beautiful poetess. More grace, mentor.

Best Poem of Valsa George

Acrostic Poems

Earthquakes:

E-arth shudders on its hinge
A-ll experience that terrific punch
R-oads crack and traffic stops
T-remors rock and havoc wreaks
H-orror strikes and rubble heaps
Q-uest to save the trapped turns in vain
U-nder the rubble, men scream in pain
A-fter shocks and seismic waves,
K-illing thousands, the disaster leaves.
E-ngulfing gloom swallows the Earth
S-ky high dreams, shattered in death!


Ghost:

G-hastly noises heard around
H-aunted houses with thickets surround
O-ld castles where mysteries abound
S-tarved faces ...
