I am female, ( Many think I am male), spiritually inclined, 50+ married with a 14  year old son, an housewife. Most of my poems are influenced by my past experiences and what I have read in my favourite book Bhagvad Gita.( Gita Sadak sanjivini by Gita press Gorakhpur). This book has answers to most questions about life and tips for perfect living. I love reading poems written by others. Thanks all for brightening my day.









Happy Birthday Marilene Evans (9th October)

Blog Posted:10/9/2021 12:31:00 AM

Join me in wishing Marlene happy birthday. It is her 70th birthday today


At 70 life has just begun

All my duties I have done

Now I will every moment enjoy

Lead a life full of joy


This is what Marlene is!


She is always full of zest

Knowing her, I feel blessed

Her life is an inspiration to me

How to live happily


Life threw problems at her

Since birth one after another

She handled them all bravely

With unwavering faith courageously


At 70, she is learning new skills

Her life is full of joy and thrills

I applaud her attitude towards life

This is the best way to end all strife


Check out her poem 





Thanks for posting Marlene, 

I found them inspiring


Have a fabulous day ahead friend

Keep inspiring.

Thanks a lot Andrea. I had a wonderful time. It was so much fun and tears of joy, when my daughters paid tribute to me. My sons are shy. My four older grandkids (ages 19 - 27) read poems from my books.
