Ghazalle

Being born in an Indian family I started learning English as my first language, (many families do that) and this became the main reason for loving this language more. As far as career choices go, ESL seems to offer a sense of cultural enhancement and personal reward as I am English language instructor for the past 20 years. Presently working in King Abdulaziz University Jeddah. I did MA(literature) and Celta to enhance myself as an instructor and this made me technically and logically equipped for the job hence giving me immense satisfaction. My Job and the three children kept me occupied over the years. I believe writing has always been a means of expression for me and I express better through poems, this is also a medium through which I stay connected to my first love Literature.

Be

Be the person that I knew could fly high Be the star which shone brighter in the sky. Be the strength that needed only my prayers to be Be the piller of dignity that everyone would see. Be the path setter for those who lost hope Be the…

Past & Future

As I lay on my bed staring at the ceiling.. I ponder how fast this year passed, how much I achieved, how content I feel at times, how lost I am in my thoughts, how I swam across the deep ocean of life, how near I came to the shore, how I…

Life

Life The surety of morning while struggling at night The hope of meeting when parting at twilight. The faith of sailing when the water seems high The certainty of smile while heartbreaks and we cry. Life is just a pause and a…

To My daughter ‘Abeer’
