Dr. Raja Rajeswari Seetha Raman, MALAYSIA

Exclusive: Best of Women Poetry: Edited by Padmaja Iyengar-Paddy

A leader
blooms in blue night
fuels steady flame of light.

A lawyer
chambers the red heart
in creative delight.

A philosopher
utters silent history
in the canvas of the sky.

A professor
signals green and red
at every cross-roads.

A performer
strikes a chord
in a grey mind.

A writer
digs scores of graves
on stormy nights.

wakeful warmth
in the womb of earth!
