A first bloom,

A first flower,
In a barren garden,
A God sent boon;
She stoops,
Stretches a shaky hand;
A miracle has fallen,
In a lonely garden;
A fragile blossom,
She clutches to her bosom,
Forgetting the dark memories,
The cold lonely days;
A blossom of sun rays,
At last,
To warm her waning age
Anita Bacha

  1. And yet age does nothing to the business
    Only the brightness of the sun in the eyes
    resounds, unrestrained, in the sweetness
    at the beauty of a flower with a loving gaze
    In the morning of my days ending,
    Delightfully I caress the garden
    … in my soul lovingly

    Pardon pour mon anglais 🙂
    Bonne soirée à Nous

      • Thank you from the other side of the Atlantic. I enjoy your posts very much. They are inspiring and full of a real and deep passion.
        It is raining here in my little corner of the US. Winter is, I think over. That is good, I can’t wait for the warm days of Spring, and the sun shinning brightly. Nature awakening from her Winter respite. Blossoms and blooms every where, it really is a tie of motivation.
        I hope you have a nice weekend, and thank you for your inspiration.

      • That is very sweet of you. I am glad that we met, indirectly that is. You’re writing comes from the heart, you have a deep and kind soul, and the wisdom from living a life with an open heart and eyes.


    • Thank you for the follow, for your visit and your appreciation of my poetry. I understand a wee bit of Hindi. I am born, raised and educated in Mauritius. I attended Hindi school before the age of 5; I then joined primary school and learnt English and French. Why? You may wonder. I studied to become a barrister at law in U.K. and returned to Mauritius to practice French legislation, the applicable laws being French, Code Civil etc.
