She writes: “I have been into content writing and poetry crafting since 2001. I love the works of Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, John Keats and several other poets. My first English poem ‘Mother’ was published in www.poetry.com. My writing took the major international platform in 2013. Recognition came from a Jamaican fine artist – the Editor-in-Chief of ‘Lucienne Lovelette The Arts Magazine Collection International’ (LLTAMCI) – The introduction poem for their edition went from me apart from few other poems. Now, My works are with the magazine for their hardcopy launch in The US in the name: ‘BIAM’. Opportunities from World Poetry Canada in recognition of my ’emotions based poetry’ are having me go the next steps in my poetry work. My peace poetry was on Display for World Peaceathon Exhibit at UBC. I was recently on a couple of weekly radio shows for the ‘National Poetry Month’ on ‘World Poetry Open Mic’ and was also the phone guest on World Poetry Cafe Radio streaming @ 100.5 FM.”

CRY OF THE ROSES…

As we sway smothered in blood shed,

Neither men nor nature know the pains of red.

Midst reign of terror, guns and smoke,

We lay like the extinct.

 

‘I’ – A symbol of love to this world –

the color of bloodshed, I do have.

I am a weeping rose;

Weeping to the depths of my heart

to see the unearthly, eerie

turn of ‘shoot to death’.

 

Earth: ‘mother to all’

is pained and wounded.

To see her children perishing in pain.

 

If Love be your core and

Peace be within you,

Lying somewhere unheard to, within the self;

Stamp down that gun,

to turn smoke into love.

Be a symbol of LOVE!

 

Love Can turn Ashes to Flourishing Soil.

Love Can Heal.

Love Can Cherish Peace.

Love can build an EARTH.

It would be of great help if you feature me on the World Poetry site.”

This is one of my poems:

“The Silent Conversation”

The dim radiance rushing
 to take shelter inside my eyes,
Shadows of flipping calendar pages
soothing the half painted walls.
Dark thoughts jumping from
extreme corners starry  ceilings,
Into my pen,out on a paper piece,
in the form of a dark poem.

Tears that are secrets of the ink,
kept surging,
A poem-Bruised scar of my pain
got penned in rhymes.
The malodorous smell of stinking darkness permeated my room, Sweat smelling weary night kept staring at my despairing looks.

Two strangers on the road
 were having a silent conversation,
Their attire resembled the
black gown that loneliness puts on.
Darkness had swallowed them whole,
Locked gates kept them staring for long.

Evil clouds were circling over their heads , They were looking pale, gloom and strained.
I was watching them from a half-opened window, Brooding on their furtive plans of tomorrow.

More drifted by their thoughts and talks, I went downstairs to their conversation spot.
The moon was the gray streetlamp above them, And beneath them was lying my wondering gaze.

“Who are you  both, I want to know,
In the midnight what makes you talk so long ?”
Thus I questioned them without any fear, But I could notice their eyes damped with tears.

Then one of them replied in a stumpy voice, “I am Life and he is Death, Neither can live together, Nor can one live without the other, And we both meet together, Only after a complete life-time is over”.

Stunned , I stood there still like a pile of burnt ashes.

Soon their silent conversation came to an end.
They hugged each other and left the place.
One made his way towards my left,
The other followed the path to my right.
And they were on a single circular track.

At first, they would walk away from each other,
But finally meet at the same spot,
From where they had parted, and started
Their life-long journey to meet one  another…
