For Michael Shepherd

To ride the wings of breath
And swim the body into the deep
Place between the in and out
The before and after
The now and now

To dive so deep
So beyond into the bliss
And even further
Into effortless effort
This is just the beginning

very good story why can't we all still follow it produce more eves from ribs why keep a child in womb still 9 long months do try you have still a long way o poet great then share your secrets
Thank you Valsaji
Thank you Valsaji, Many of the occurrences that take place in our society are very painful, I wish even a small number of them may change because of my poems, but it is a very bad situation. If only the Mothers who train the children change, then only the miracle can happen. In a materialistic world it is unlikely to happan. Thank you once again.
You have portrayed a very common occurrence in married life! Some women enslave their husbands through threats and tears....! The poor husbands often have to yield to the foolish whims of their wives to sustain the peace and calm of the family or just to show others that their domestic life is running smooth! A poem which resonates with the situation in many families!
She enslaves him by tears and threats! A great poem poet Josey
