Writer ,Publisher, Poet and  Professor  NAGASUSEELA PANCHUMARTHI is a distinguished Scholar and Internationally publisher of note. She is the Co-Editor of JKC Guntur College World Poetry in English series . The professor and her partner Dir. Gopichand Paruchuri who also manages the Guntur International Poetry Festival fished out my performance poetry and flashed it to become page poetry. Iam greatly indebted to you my Indian friends and senior poets. India remains my creative home, my power home for inspiration. Nagasuseela Panchumarthi’s poetry is drivingly paradoxical. Her pen smothers out falsehood about life flows and issues. Many think that life is stagnant and static . She reminds us with her paradoxical sickle that life blooms like a flower, coughs like toddler , snakes life a river , melodious like a dove .Life can be both gloom and glow .Her poem reveals the maturity in her as a poet and that she is well versed with her subject matter .Her simple but deep verses leave no traces of doubt that the author is a revered teacher and does not strangle or twist grammar to reveal issues but rather flow with wave of verbal dexterity and lyrical simplicity without going to war with lines , verses and metaphors . She is a proven literature scholar, mentor and English teacher. Worth reading. Its great meeting and knowing Prof. Greetings to Dr. Gopichand Paruchuri , Writers ,Poets and English students at Guntur. WATCH OUR HER FULL PROFILE ON TIME OF THE POET in the miombopublishing.wordpress.com, this week. ALUTA CONTINUA!

FLOW OF LIFE

Year after year….
Life turns away its pages
Burns away a few weeds
Plough and plant new seeds
Bestows with fine buds
Sprinkles fragrant flowers
Honour with precious fruits
Never stops showing paths
Never gives up teaching facts
Ever fresh lessons…!
Neverending stories…!
As precious as diamonds…!
To face the storms and avalanches
To accept the queer songs of life
To admit all novel acts of the play
Smiles coated with sorrows
Sorrows covered with silences
Profits flourished with frauds!
Perks popup here and there
Bubbly lives foamy waves
Whipped well all ideas and ideals
Whirlwinds blew off all dreams
Hopes bloom at the threshold of New Year
Tossing all sands of deserts
Breathing lively new spirit
Into the veins of New Year
Oh! Dear New Year!
You are so strong and robust
You always create situations
You also create solutions
We run, jump and galloped to get you
We strive hard to prove what we are
We struggle a lot to meet our dreams
You strike us hard at the core of our hearts
To test our purity in words and deeds!

NEW LEAF

Another year…
On the verge of ring out
Two more days to go
New year eagers to
Enter the lives of millions
With many hopes and dreams
With all pomp and show
To prove its vigour and valor
To cast its spell over our lives
Wheel of life moves eternally
Carrying the bundle of memories
Indelible feelings and moments
That turn the paths topsy turvy
Pushing all bitter into gutter
Pulling all honey to heart beats
Coping with many fears in mind
Burying many tears in lives
Young or old aspires high
Dreams big, wishes afresh
Waiting for a New Leaf to turn
Recaps and retrospections hit hard
New flaires, oaths, new slices of life
Allure with heavenly tastes
Make people sleepless
On New Year’s eve
With new resolutions
Or no resolutions
To flow eternally
With the mysterious
Flow of miraculous life…

LIFE…
Thoughts that
Turn our paths
Words that
Twist our fates
Deeds that
Trigger our routes
Dreams that
Trouble our real world
Smiles that
Tumble our bonds
Tears that
Prompt our fears
Risks that
Promote our beliefs
Pains that
Propel our wisdom
Egos that
Provoke our moments
Life that
Produce our mysteries

EVER MEMORABLE
Nice to recall the
eternal memories
Good to peep at the
ever fresh moments
Fine to roam around
the bites of yesterday
Great to listen to the
lyrics of granny’s tunes
No place to replace the
sweet beats of the past
Memorable all the way
Melodious till the end…
