Need to know..

You're toppling memories,
Built by storms.
Does this mean you're stronger
Than thunder, than lightning?
You're creating experiences,
By your voice.
Does this mean your words
Are more powerful than my past?
You're promising encounters,
Touched by magic.
Does this mean when fulfilled
Your promises will heal my soul?

WOW!! This is gem! I want to rave about it, but my words will never capture the poem's brilliance...so I'll just retreat in silence...awestruck silence.

[wistfully] if only I was as inspired [/wistfully]

Touched by
Your magic
I'm healed
I require
No promises

Whew, another humdinger, lady poet!
If the next Rushdie compiles new poetry
from India and fails to include this poem, Manisha,
he should be banished to a desert island
with a megaphone blaring this poem endlessly...

cheers !

Amazing...simple yet so bloody powerful (excuse my language)...I feel as if I've been hit by a thought-storm. Each line opening up windows to another thought. The other day you were asking someone else for their talent...today it is my turn to ask for at least some of yours :)

hey guys,
Before anyone thinks MB has gone off his rocker,
let me explain why this effusion of posts in
Manisha's cyberspace... I had a wily virus in
my computer that was orgiastically repeating
everything I sent out... finally nabbed it and
killed it- I deleted the entries Manisha, but
footprints remain...so sorry!
cheers!
