Poetry – The Fragrance of Love

Soul Sisters

From Grey Skies to Sunny Days,Rocky Terrains, Green Views and Haze,Stormy Weathers and Silent Moonlit Night,Swollen Eyes and Smiles – ah, so bright.

When Dreams & Hearts were broken,Words were unspoken,AContinue reading “Soul Sisters”


A barren piece of land, The canvas for the farmer. It turned to life in its time, Nurtured with love and patience. Brushstrokes of Nature Epitomized new beginnings, Spring hues told a colourful story In winters, the mustard fields gave their glory. (c) Pallavi Lumba – June 2021.
