She was everything
The most beautiful creation
nature bestowed to earth
deeply madly in love
Alas, my destiny would not have it
I was, I am, cursed by birth

    1. Thanks SB for your thought…In most cases it is true (definitely in ours)..however there are those few who are born in abject poverty, in a famine hit or war zones; unfortunately life for them is already being decided by others before they have a say.

    1. 🙂 number, home address, kith and kin, birthday, star sign, likes dislikes 🙂 just the soul was not available so it didn’t work out 🙂


  1. Your blog, your photography, your poetry are superlative. Thanks for following me so that I found the remarkable things you are sharing with the rest of the world.


  2. “Cursed by birth” this is powerful.

    I run a small writing prompt program in which I use snippets from other writers, obtain their permission, link to their story and use the line as the weekly prompt. May I use this line? If you’re interested, I’ll send you the link to find out more about it, it’s a wonderful community, one which I think you would love!


    1. Absolutely, I am honoured and humbled 🙂 and definitely would love to know more about your community 🙂 thank you so much 🙂


      1. OK. The other day I read one of your poems and the photo had a big rock looking thing in it. I’ll see if I can find it. I think I saw it on the Reader.


      2. No, on the top and to the left in the photo. Is it just a pile of dirt? Or perhaps part of the mountain, why it’s called Sugar Loaf Mountain?


      1. You know, AB, I’ve just decided that my problem with it is that it seems more … aimed ? directed ? … less OVER-ALL than usually. I think I’m touched far more deeply by your work that isn’t about a ‘particular person’ (regardless of its being merely a … ummm … personification from your thinking). Shut up, M.R.! – you’re rambling !


      2. M R point well made and (I think) understood, I have lots of ways to say things and quite a few of them would be in first and second person 🙂


  3. And I’ve probably liked other work that’s equally ‘personal’. I shall now go back to the weighty matter of completely re-doing my blog in terms of my book – which has got somewhat lost without all those bloody widgets. Sighh … What time is it with you?


  4. Perhaps Im as shallow as my pastel little blog, but cute shoes she is wearing ^_^ the shoes made me read and the poem moved me a little bit. You are such a treat to follow.


    1. It is ok to be who you are, nothing is shallow or deep, just our perception and sense of relative depth – we are all deeply shallow to the almighty 🙂 thank you so much for the comment, I am glad that shoes were the cause 🙂


  5. The cursing by birth still hasn’t gone away. Racism, inferior education, caste systems or class systems, religious intolerance – all these things still place people on the other side of a barrier.
