I feel delighted at winning the contest – ‘Write a piece inspired by Wallace Stevens’ poetry’ hosted by Ellie Onka. With utmost respect, I would like to thank Lucy for choosing my piece, for always inspiring me with her extraordinary comprehension of language and literature.I would also thank all the participants for inspiring me with their amazing work.

Just by appreciating, inspiring & cooperating, by choosing to be happy, for ourselves and for others, we can hold heavens in our embrace. Isn’t that wonderful? I am incredibly humbled and grateful for all those slaps and flogs that shaped and bolstered my relationship with me. Hopefully, as they say, my stories will find me. Here’s an excerpt:

I was fortunate enough to have my pieces published on websites like Spillwords, Quiver Review, Elephant Journal, and anthologies published under Indie Blue Publishing, Spectrum of thoughts, Flairs and Glairs. I believe I am a work in progress.
