- Short English Poems
A mother-daughter duo who embarked on this journey of writing poems over a year now. Initially for both, it was just a bit of scribbling, but the words would emerge as poetry.
We would like to take our readers through a roller coaster ride of poetry and not stories this time. Poetry that ranges from love, life, relationships, mathematics, heritage etc. Our attempt has been to put the best words in the best order. We never knew what the end was, when we started writing poems. However, we knew that we had to write, coz for us our emotions and thoughts had found words to express.
