There is a void in my heart that only you can fill
I walk, off the beaten path, trying to erase your memory
Pain clutches at my very core, shattering the stillness
I look around at the autumn splendor, but feel nothing,
Hear nothing, just a vast emptiness echoing your name
Your voice, your presence, only your existence
I have to forget; learn to live without you, but how?
And then I see the cardinal tree, my cardinal tree
The bare branches ablaze with scarlet feathers
And I want to live again, for me.
I am a dentist by profession. I love the arts and nature. I am an avid photographer. I like to write poetry and short stories, mostly for family and friends. I was born and raised in India and then relocated to Trinidad and Tobago. Currently I live in Memphis, Tennessee with my husband, two boys, and two canine children.
I love bird watching. I have a passion for hummingbirds. I have a backyard with flowers grown exclusively for hummers and butterflies. In summer I spend time photographing different moods of the hummers. Their jewel tones and ability to survive odds fascinate me. I also have a habitat for other birds and it gives me great pleasure to capture their various antics with a zoom lens.
My other hobbies are, traveling, painting, reading, and listening to music. I like Indian classical music but will listen to any genre. Since relocating to Memphis, I listen to the Blues.
