Love in a Local Train by Shyamal Mukhopadhyay

No, never traversed for thousand-of-years

into dark alleys of Srawasti Vaishali

rather feel easy to commute for livelihood

in local trains daily;

so many faces creating varied montage

before my eyes visually

on a flash, a pair of deep kohled eyes

pierced at me passingly

somewhere in obsession, the face stuck

into mind unknowingly.


Boarding my local after a casual holiday,

a whisper” where had you been yesterday?”

 Cupid's Arrow

This exquisite Anthology, a collection of sublime poems and prose, tells of the essence of love, as music to the ears and the stirring to our hearts.  From “Love at First Sight,” to “Love Never Dies,” every facet of love is gloriously depicted in the many lovely chapters given to us from these gifted poets.

Come, fall in love, remember the taste of it, the feel of it within.  Come cry a few tears, then rejoice its victories.

Love.” conquers all.

Brenda-Lee Ranta, author of A Soul Passenger
