I am passionate about poetry and started writing relatively late in life. But once started I found it difficult to stop. And I hope I never do!
I live in Australia and love to reach out to poets all around the world in friendship and with our mutual love of the written word!
WOMEN AND POEMS
With as much pain as a human being becomes a woman,
That much pain makes a woman a poet.
A word takes a long year to be made,
a poem an entire life.
When woman becomes a poet, she is totally a woman.
Then she is mature enough to give birth from her suffering heart,
Then she knows how to care for a word.
You have to be a woman first if you want to give birth to a poem.
A word without any pain is fragile, breaks when touched.
Who knows more than a woman all the lanes and alleys of pain!
