Best friends

Lovely books here and there, hug them all Throw away the digital monster that gulps your brain and burns you under its harmful rays. Lovely books here and there, hug them all To learn with fun, there are so many ways Adventures, fantasies, histories, comics and many such friends Lovely books here and there, hug them all. Neither loss nor pain, they give you only gain. P.S. : I have never tried new forms of poetry till date and this is my first ever experiment on a Triolet. My humble thanks to Cecelia Crasto for encouraging me to try different forms of poetry. Thank you so much for all your encouragement and support Nana.(as I lovingly call her). This is for you.

One of the things I like best about writing is being versatile...and that, to me, means trying new and different styles, forms, genres, etc. Good for you, Swetha, for taking your friends advice. And good for us, too.

I love books - I have kept all my son's books from his youth! I love walking into a book store more than a boutique and I adore the smell of a new book, an old book, in fact any book! Well Penned Swetha. Hugs, Jennifer.
