I created my blog using inspiration, intuition, observation and courage.

Sharing my thoughts expressed through poetry (mostly).

Welcome and hope you enjoy reading.

Update: Some more about me here … including my favourite poem :-)

… and I am grateful for this milestone post – No Ordinary Sermon

    You continue to amaze and inspire me in a way nothing else has done in so long though I make a constant effort also. You speak in the same voice as my beloved Hafiz and though I have a rich spirit it is unequal to your faith! Hafiz, ” God and I are like two big fat people in a little bitty boat. We keep bumping into each other and laughing! ” Welcome aboard Sonya!
    Thank you,


    1. Cathie,
      I am overwhelmed at your comment. I would love to take credit for your compliments but I need to say I usually feel like a vessel through which the recycled words flow. Am happy to be aboard and also to know that you are amazed and inspired. Thank you :))


  4. Sonya, I’m floored by the simplicity, sincerity, earnestness and honesty of some of your compositions! Bravo, and I look forward to read what more can flow from your fount! God bless!


  5. Aap wakai bahut nazakat k saath lafzo ko duniya k saamne rakhti hai. ye kareeb 5 saalo me pehli baar hua hai ki apart from legendary poets kisi ka likha padh ke mere chehre pe muskaan aayi hai. aur main aapki is imaandari ki daad deta hoon. kyunki achcha likhne waale bahut hai… lekin sachcha likhne wale bahut kam milte hai.
    shukriya for sharing your beautiful vision :)


    1. Dear Anurag,

      I have no idea how to respond to this treasure of a comment you have so thoughtfully written out, co-incidentally (?) on my 3rd blog anniversary as well. Though I don’t believe too much in co-incidences.

      Although I got the gist of your thoughts, I did ask for help in translation of a few words. Nazakat is one word I can add to my very limited vocabulary and what a delightful word it is.

      Shukriya for your appreciation, though it may not be fully deserved, but I happily accept your each and every lafz :)

      (FYI I speak and think in English. I know the most basic of Hindi and a smattering of Urdu)


      1. Well Many Congratulations for the 3rd Blog anniversary :)
        And for co-incidences I must share that ‘Co-incidences are the most beautiful encounters destined by almighty with the help of blessings showered upon us by our family and friends. So I request you to cherish these precious moments of Co-incidences, an offering from the holy soul we only feel.’
        Thanks Once Again!!
        Keep Sharing the motivating spirit :)


    1. Thank you so much Akhiz. That is an impressive list of blogs you have nominated. Many congratulations on your milestone of 100 followers! Wish you all the very best. I am not sure what is expected of me after being nominated, but I will not able to follow through the requirements, if any.


    1. Thank you so much :)

      Just knowing that people stop by to read and maybe like or comment on my work is my daily award. I am most indebted to you and all my readers for encouraging me to write, and even inspiring me.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am very impressed with the excellence and high quality in your poems and posts at this blog. I have started to follow your blog. Thanks for your presence and contributions in the blogosphere.


      1. only thieves and writers have to justify their occupations and explain “why they spend their lives in dark, lonely places when they could be out in sunshine and freedom”.

        I love your poetry and I can’t wait to go through every adventure in your prose.

        My blog is an infant but with 2-3 posts a day, can’t wait to see how it turns out


  7. Thank you for visiting my blog Sonya. It’s such a discovery your blog and a sheer pleasure of your poetry… your poems are at the same time both grounded and elevated… :)


I would love to have your thoughts
