Ariadne’s note: We want  to welcome the poet Ramsundar Yadav! Thank you for waiting so long to be on site.

Ramsundar writes:I pursue civil engineering at Mnnit Allahabad in India.
My passion  is to write poems.
Here is one of my poems:

I offer myself in solitude to be yours…
I see my universe in you
I feel my love in you
I dream my life in you
I offer myself in solitude to be yours…
my universe is beautiful with you…

I am in your voice
I am in your splendid dreams
I am here, I am there
I am everywhere
you see, you hear
you smile, you walk
you feel in you every moments
I offer myself in solitude to be yours…
my universe is beautiful with you…

There is a romantic universe in heart of my soul
 Scrambling like changing weather
Moving like hidden blowing air
Caring like my beautiful dreams
Living like immortal fearful fiction
I offer myself in solitude to be yours…
my universe is beautiful with you…

Surrender me when I am not seen
Scare me when I am moving like a shadow
Secretly knocks the door
Enters happily, loves madly
I offer myself in solitude to be yours…
my universe is beautiful with you…

THE  POTTER’S ALLEY

In the cool
heat of one night,
Blank
clouds killing the moon’s glow,

The bad past was feeding
On my hopes
of love,

It could have been my last dusk, 
In the city that broke my heart,
I could have begun hating that town,         
Which I had loved since the start,

Walking
down straight away,     
From God’s excellent factory,
An angel
descended to me,    
Behind her a fading trajectory,

One look at
her and I know I was hers,
One single gaze and she left me amazed
One astonishing moment and I was in love,
She moved away, moved far,
Made another turn, and looked again
With the
promise of meeting again,
With the
assurance that the last
moment was spent not in vain,

My footwear
unclean, my heart pure,
 Her clothes filthy, soul chaste,

Losing that
moment of the night,
 In the quest to prove our purity,

Awaiting
the day, awaiting some day,
To gain
love, to lose sanity,

For we were
not thieves

 To plot in the dark,
 We were honest lovers
And shall
wait for the dawn,

 The potter’s alley
where he worked,

Carving out pots from clay,
That place,
love, at its own pace,

Sculpted an
image of her,
In the
quiet alley of my heart.

Awaken hopes in your heart
Decorate dreams in your eyes
Not so high is the sky
Make efforts to spread wings

What though if malice in anyone’s heart
O yes, my name is ‘Kiran’
Within me I have my own light to shine.
