Sarala Ram Kamal. An Indian Bard came third in the just concluded Poetry contest organized by Poetry 24/7 under the leadership of Sir Tobster Daniello.
Her poem won  a whooping number of readers heart and of course, Judges testified of her godly talent in the weave of words.

Here is her poem which made her third on the winning list.

             I AM A POETESS
When I was a newborn

I wrote poems with my four limbs

Throwing them up in the air

Only God knew what I wrote
When I was a little bigger

I wrote poems with my lips

In an unknown lingua franca

Only my mother knew what I wrote
When I was a school girl

I wrote poems on the river water

Which flowed westward

Maybe Arabian sea had them all
When I was a teenager

I wrote poems on the western sky

With my dreamy eyes

On the golden canvas where the clouds rested in many a shape
When I got married

I wrote poems with the broom

On my new home’s floor

They were very dark
When I was pregnant

I wrote lullabies with my breath

Hearing them my baby kicked

And I knew it liked them all
When my child started walking

All my poems I wrote till then

Came back once again

Through those little feet, with their new steps
Now, when the kids are up and on their own

Poems come to me, I pick pen and paper,

Write them; the alphabet is known to the world

Many reads, likes, dislikes …
All poems written in my life till now are there

Lingering in my breaths, sighs and inside the dreams

They are so sweet with all spices mixed in the right proportion

I am a poet, still writing, may be will be writing through my death
