Book Launch

I am delighted to share with you the launch of my poetry book ‘OF SILHOUETTE WORDS AND MOONFLOWERS’ .This is my first book and it is an attempt to showcase the myriad hues of life .

Of Silhouette Words & Moon flowers  explores life silhouetted in expression , existence and experience.

The Silhouette is  a part of us, beings of day and night  , so succinctly described by Zara Ventris “I am the child of the Moon, being raised by the Sun, in a world walked by the stars and a sky drawn with flowers”.

Words , are eternal voyagers  in time, bearing  our feelings and emotions, steadfast in their loyalty to us.

Moon flowers are known to glow just like the full moon, they hold the meaning of the mysteries of the intuition , the mystical movement of the stars and moon, and are symbols of delicate femininity. 

“The moon has dripped gold onto us, from all of the nights that we laid awake under the stars , dreaming with our hearts and singing with our souls.”, these words by Emily Marie so aptly capture that essence I have tried to portray in this book.

There are five themes in this book . Paper Boat Trails  seeks to highlight the fascination and delight paper boats evoke with earthy metaphors  endeavouring  to look beyond the mists of reality.

There is a hearty welcome awaiting in my  imaginary land, In The Land of “Things to Write”  which talks about in as many poetic words, the writer’s block , stories of letters ,the frustrations and joys of writing.

Words Are Me  is an effort to bring out the light, joyful and sombre side of us.

Then there is the dark side of life, The Grey Twilight ,  that seeks to explore the other world and its shadowy undertones.

I have taken up Time as a theme to portray it’s permanence in our existence and the myriad ways it shows up in our lives.

These poetry works are an attempt to showcase fascinating hues of life with humour, truth and understanding.

This poetry book , seeks to enthuse thoughts and emotions , being forged from a woman’s perspective on life and love, with  silhouettes of words interspersed with the magical light of the elements as symbolised by the moon flowers.


It is this thread of magic interwoven in our lives

that makes us search for our own stars

walking in moon dust and star sun shine

painted  a little in the glow of moonflower blooms

for all of us are in the playgrounds of grief and joy.



I hope you enjoy reading the poems as I did enjoy writing them.

It is available on Smashwords ,Kindle ,Amazon, Flipkart and Zorba books.

Quote Street!!

New video …. trying something new!!😊✌️💕


‘I’ phone !!

The tall monolithic ‘I’

Centre point of the universe.

The Ego wrap .

The ‘I’.

Staying to fight, wrong or right.

The Prism prison of Me.

Me, me only me.

Caught in the screen light

of the mobile phone.

Staring into abysses unknown

The tall monolithic ‘I’.

Life light warped into pixels of

Likes, Thumbs up, heart shaped desires.

The silences cry, for it was,

will always be ‘I’.

Please move aside,

for I have waves of internet to surf.

This will take a while?



This is a write, that wrote itself .

I need to put my thinking cap to figure it out.

Oh boy!!😊✌️👋

Haunting waters

The waters rise high.

Water drops, tinkle moon dappled

splash on to dreams wild,

singing lost lullabies of a bygone time.

The waters churn to a full frenzy

of thoughts, falling of cliffs of doubt.

Becoming mist like ghosts hovering

on the precipices of worlds

you I do not know.

Hush, wait till the night clears

the waters hold tears of fear.

The ghosts of pasts forsaken wait.
