Today I write asking you to welcome to this website one of my closest friends – Deeksha – who has very kindly agreed to do a guest blog. I met Dee (as I like to call her) when we were both in our teens and I have seen her grow into an extremely talented poet. Her observations are astute and her poems are deep and full of meaning. I, however, made a very mundane request for a poem on knitting, especially since she has just started knitting herself. So the next post will be from Deeksha with her small funny poem on knitting.
I hope you will give her the same love and warmth that you have given me. And if you do, then maybe, one day, if you’re really lucky, she’ll let you also read the beautiful words she weaves into poems.
P.S. As you can see from the heading to this post, my poetry writing skills are abysmal!
