Perfect Poet Award for Week 15 by Jingle http://jingleyanqiu.wordpress.com

Thank you jingle for this lovely get together which you organize for us every day. You sure make our days more beautiful and adorable.

Thanks my dear, priceless friend Rahim (http://wordwand.wordpress.com) for nominating this very ordinary poet for this lovely award.

Thank you to all of you who have become a beautiful part of my life.

God bless you all.

Now my poem for this weekโ€™s Thursday Poet Rally:

Shell and pearl

A restless soul
Which left the earth
With insatiate desires
Stumbled upon the body
Of a meditating sage
Who has left for heaven
Immersed in meditation
The shell stayed on earth.

The soul captured the body
Happy as a king
Thought that he will get
All the honour of the sage
The disciples came to see
Their teacher, mentor
They gathered around him.
To hear him, adore him.

Were shocked to see
The vulgar transformation.
They scattered away soon
Mumbling among themselves
Is it really him
Or some ghost has stolen
His body in stealth
His soul is not within.

The spirit forgot in haste
Body is only shell
Its our actions that decide
Shall we be adored
Or be abhorred
He stole the shell
And thought he had
The hidden pearl.

This poem has been inspired by a story i read in my wonderful, priceless friend girlgeum’s blog kuhpi nights (http://girlgeum.wordpress.com). She is a marvellous writer. I am addicted to her writing.

Now comes the troublesome part nominating only one person. I humbly admit that I have an irresistible urge to nominate half a dozen persons. So after juggling half a dozen names I finalized on a very, very talented poet and a wonderful human being Pete Marshall at (http://petemarshall1.wordpress.com/).

Author:

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I canโ€™t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me @sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com, sermistabasu@gmail.com or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) mydomainpvt.wordpress.com (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- Agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com And Agnijaat.wordpress.com if you want fb you can go to my page facebook.com/sermistabasu, linkedin- linkedin.com/authorsharmishthabasu my email id sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com and sermistabasu@gmail.com I am in goodreads and completelynovel too http://www.goodreads.com/sharmishthabasu http://completelynovel.com/sharmishtha-basu http://amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
