The past is your lesson
The present is your gift
The future is your poetry
My poetry book SOUL POETRY was yet another opportunity for me to travel and discover the reading world.
It’s incredible and worthy to note that books have a precious place in the heart of the millennial, our audience today and tomorrow.
At the Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair 2018, I realized that it’s a great joy to witness readers, young and old,buying and investing in our words, in our poetry.

Last year’s picture
A few months ago, more precisely in May, I visited Chicago in Illinois in the company of my son, Toshlen.
My poetry book ‘Soul Poetry’ published by Partridge India was exhibited by the Combined Book Exhibit of New York at the Book Expo America.
I seized the opportunity to travel to America and I dragged Toshlen along. I was at my third visit to the States. For an unknown reason I am attracted to this country.
On 13 May, we took the bus from Dr. Martin Luther King, Mc Cormick Place to S Indiana Avenue. Toshlen gave me a treat of seafood in a posh restaurant.
On our way back, he clicked this photo and said
‘Ma, Donald Trump will win the elections in November!’
He pointed out to me the name ‘TRUMP’ on a building. Being short sighted,I could not see the name but Trump has indeed won the elections. Rough guess or prediction ⁉️
My poetry is my inseparable lover
At night I snuggle and slumber with her
A velvety couch of imagery is our dream
Of mystic lands beings and forms unseen
In the morning my eyes open to her beauty
In her silky tresses I thread myself furtively
Her kisses are words of ecstasy
Burning my skin as evanescent paper arduously
As she carves with the pen of immortality
She turns to ashes my poet’s frisk and folly
Turning my heart to lyrics of past life and mystery
Together we plough in the pasture of eternity
When we write,we inscribe what we know
When we read, we discover what we do not know.
Jonathan Rabb, the American author, was pleasantly surprised.I queued up for his autograph at the BEA 2016.
“You are a published poet!”he exclaimed when I showed him my poetry book. “Where can I find your book?”
I pointed to the Combined Book Exhibit at the entrance of the book fair.
I devoured his proof in one gulp.His book ‘Among the Living’ was not published yet. A captivating love story of unequal beauty…set up in a land unknown to me until I came to the last page.
