P – for poise and passion as poets play around with words!

O – for an obvious and observant eye for what the world may feel and see but knows not how to say!

E – for elegant and effervescent language which knows how to state much by frugal means!

T – for the tantalizing and the teasing play of words letting the thought appearances get deceptive!

R – for refreshing and reflective happening at the same time, often!

Y – for the youthful and the yonder outlooks creeping in-between the lines!

My favorite among a long list of favorites which has won me innumerable awards through school till my post-graduation ;
Each time I’d recite it, I find something new in this poem and newer ways to recite it for my audience!!
There’s a definite magic of the obvious youth within the halls of the tantalizing Uni life……
…..I find poetry everywhere!
There is reflective and refreshing ideas as public spaces are converted into learning spaces in this beautiful country!
Oh, poetry in community spaces!
The tantalizing atmosphere and the teasing sunshine create perfect poetry on a lazy summer market in Queenstown!!
