Ms. Anju Kishore, formerly a finance professional, is a Pushcart Prize nominee, a published poet writing in English, and an award-winning editor of numerous free-verse anthologies. She is now learning the ropes of theatre and Japanese forms of poetry. Her book of poems, ‘…and I Stop to Listen’ (2018) inspired by the civil war in Syria was well received. Her poems, some of them prize-winners, have been part of many anthologies and journals.


Meet me beyond thoughts that dart
like fishes frantic to be everywhere
Beyond conversations
knocking into the edges of nowhere

Meet me there, where a shaft of dawn
is not broken by what should
or should not be done
There, where clouds do not claim 
mouthfuls of every horizon

Come, let us hold hands
not as love's convoluted threads
but like waves adrift
bound by an ocean's depths

And when it is time to step back into shadows
waiting to draw you into their designs
we shall let the dark filigree drape your curves
for ablaze within you would be
the intent of a million suns
contoured by all the grey that we freed
