Home. Very happy to have a short story “John and Arunachalam” included in this lovely 2nd anniversary issue of The Browsing Corner. Many thanks to Minakshi Watts for a great compilation of poems, stories, video poems etc and for giving my story a super platform. Each piece is a gem that delights! Link to my story ” JOHN and ARUNACHALAM”
My poem ‘Nests’ is on page 105. Do read the free preview of the entire anthology and buy if possible. A unique work by Brian Wrixon and Poets with voices strong group where each poem is in what the poet considers as his or her signature style. My heart felt thanks to Brian Wrixon for this book and his passion and commitment to poetry.
My poem ‘Flowering nights’ features in the Editor’s pick of the best poems and can be viewed at The Second Hump, Volume III, http://secondhump3.blogspot.com/
Mr Russell Streur’s e-mail intimation is reproduced below.
It is the nature of web publishing for work to quickly fall off main pages and into archival wildernesses after a short period of time. To delay this lamentable fate, I have established a companion site to the Saloon to hold in cyberspace certain works on a more permanent basis. The Second Hump, published on a monthly basis and as an annual volume, is composed of my personal favorites of the selections I have received or posted at the Saloon in the last passing of the moon.
For December of 2012, my choices for this edition of The Second Hump are:
Brackish Street by Rachel Lauren
Hands by Sarah E. Alderman
Flowering nights by Reena Prasad
Metallica Records Its Debut Album in Rochester, NY, May 1983 by Daniel M. Shapiro
Mourning the lost poems of an unknown poet / Hurt- spoken to Vincent by A.V. Koshy
Rain drops on window panes, sliding down till they burst into millions of smaller droplets. A pigeon sits all fluffed up to combat the cool breeze. Winter has arrived overnight, transforming the landscape completely. A pale sun peeps from behind the dark masses of clouds as they form a fleece blanket around him. The floor is icy cold, so is the sofa railing. Despite having plugged and sealed all crevices in a bid to keep summer from leaving, winter has ambled in nonchalantly adding lots of zest and freshness to cosy, complacent lives. Proper rains after two whole years ! We are celebrating here!
“A Treatise on Poetry for Beginners ” is the book written by Dr Ampat Koshy, a person immensely in love with the beauty of words , a superb poet and writer , a teacher who inspires by example.
Highly recommended for anyone who loves to read and write poetry , equally interesting and beneficial for established poets as well as beginners or anyone who likes a great read. A book to watch out for, to buy and keep, to gift and to cherish
