  1. I remember having a conversation on the phone many many many years ago with my 1st husband who was divorcing me. I was pleading with him to reconsider because I DID love him & I wanted to make things work. His response was earth shattering silence! I had not thought of that phone call for so many years & your poem brought it back like it was yesterday!
    You are a powerful poet Prakash. Thank you for sharing your words with us…

      • It is all right that it was not a ‘pleasant’ memory Prakash. Your poetry has the ability to remind me of so many forgotten memories; some good & some not so good. But as you say, some of those memories sit with us for a lifetime. And this memory reminds me of how much I have changed & become a much nicer person.
        Keep on writing! I shall keep on reading 😉

  2. Thank you for the kind words. When I was much younger I was quite selfish. I did not realize that what I did or said could be hurtful. I had to learn a lot of hard lessons. Thankfully I finally caught on & began to work on myself in my early 30’s. I am still a ‘work in progress’, but I am much improved 😉
    I adore your poetry & will continue to read! You really inspire me with your writing.

    • I guess we all are work in progress in one way or the other. It is important that every time we realize and put ourselves forward in the journey. Pleasure is all mine.. 🙂

  3. That is the key Prakash: Going forward. many people tend to stay ‘stuck’ emotionally or physically or both. Or if they are using alcohol or other drugs, they just stop growing mentally & emotionally. That is always sad to watch…
    I am so glad I keep pushing myself forward…..that is part of the joy of being alive I believe.
