My First

Dear All,

Soon you would find two of my works in a book on which one of my favourite bloggers, Susi Bocks, is working. Last year I had submitted three poems out of which Susi, the Editor-in-chief of The Short Of It, chose two for the anthology. The cover page of the anthology is below.

A big surprise which Susi gave me for this New Year. It is still unimaginable for me to be present in a book.

You would find many incredible writers in the anthology of which I am honoured to be a part. A big thanks to all of the special people for encouraging me by liking and commenting on my posts. Thank you Susi for appreciating my work and surprising me with this never-to-be-forgotten gift.

Loads of Love and Hugs

Surprise

The water splash was a tight slap to my unstoppable tears. While wiping my face, it slapped me again and soaked me completely in its coolness. The transition of the road to sea left me aghast. Rubbed my eyes thrice but it was still present. Nipped the upper arm to check the reality. ‘Where am I?’ was the question my mind and heart together vociferated and a knock on my shoulder assuaged the sudden fear.

I reminisced the moment when my mouth spoke the opposite of my eyes which bravely faced that of the most handsome man. The same affectionate eyes present at the very scene were looking at me with the same love, weakening my knees but something was strange in his appearance which was confirmed by my looking down his waist. ‘Where are your legs?’ I asked to which he grabbed my hand and said, ‘Lets go home.’ Surprisingly mine too were the same as I toppled on the sand.

‘What the hell is wrong with us? Where are we? What is going on? Would you say something?’ I squawked but he ignored and lifted me up and we dived into the sea.

‘No care for the Sky’ by Goff James and Kritika

FREE SPIRIT FLIGHT Birds in Flight Watercolor Giclee Fine Art Print by Diana Turner

No care for the sky
The bird was meant to fly high
A flutter of breeze

Boughs whispering wake
Silence stains the break of day
Freedom attracts hope

Goff James and Kritika Maheshwari

A collaborative effort of Goff James and Kritika (me) wherein Goff has helped me to understand what a Haiku is. Being a free verse writer, it was a little difficult to fit in words according to rules but his cooperation has given a celebrating break to my style of writing, making this collaboration exciting and successful. Thank you kindly for being patient with me.

You can find the same on Goff’s page link: https://goffjamesart.wordpress.com/2020/04/27/spotlight-poetry-no-care-for-the-sky-a-collaborative-poem-by-kritika-maheshwari-and-goff-james/ and do go through more of his works: https://goffjamesart.wordpress.com
