  1. Subhan, no prize is as precious as the work you have created and shared =)
    You have given your readers quite a tough choice to make…I feel divided among them all but “Don’t You Fear the Unknown” is what speaks to me in a way that will last throughout my lifetime and is best remembered when the unknown throws me into melancholic and anxious doubts…so in a way your work is also words to live by…to survive by…and to see the light that always is there if we only choose to see it =)

    • Hi Queridaj,

      Thank you very much for your kind comments. You are one wonderful soul. I am happy that my works have been of any use to you. I hope they will still be in the future. Thank you again, many blessings and much love to you. :-)

    • Thank you very much, Indira. You are one generous soul. My subscription has been messed up, but it seems to be okay now. I hope I can read your upcoming posts again, as usual. Many blessings and much love to you. :-)

  2. It’s so hard to choose. I love all six poems. But if it comes down to one, I choose A Fleeting Moment of Surprise. I love how the words dance around on the surface on my thoughts, teasingly and gently, pretty much like the gorgeous last line “the way sunshine amuses itself on water.”, before bringing me deeper.

    • Oh, Cik Abdul Halim. Thank you very much for your kind words. You are one generous soul. I hope my upcoming poems are not disappointing. Many blessings and much love to you. :-)

  3. I have read the two I have yet to comment on. I can not pick a favorite. Because you, your light soul is poured into each and every one. I can only momentarily drink. Rest from dancing and bask in the words that you choose as gifts to inspire those who are willing to be blessed.

    As writers. as poets – we can only hope that someone will read something we write. Comments and compliments are nice. But the true treasure is in the lasting friendships that are created and the strengthening of the invisible webs of humanity.

    Cheers, my friend, cheers and blessings to you.

    • That is true, Jules. I couldn’t agree more. Thank you very much for being in the community and for sharing the light you have within. The world is a much better place with the light you ignite.

      Many blessings and much love to you. :-)

  4. I can pour light into a cup, when i read this poem, i saw the light of your spirit and the beauty God placed within.,. a cup which will never be empty for all who read your words, for they will always be there every morning as we rise…for your light surely inspires always my brother!

  5. Hi Subhan! Great to read all of them! The best one for me was “don’t you fear the unknown”!
    Very well described the fear we have within at every moment at any stage for anything ,which we haven’t seen or apprehend for! The way you defined it as just a one with absence of light! It gives a whole new meaning to the line! The one who has darkness inside,one who is till ignorant,one who is unaware of the light that is eternal shall always fear.
    So the question Dont u fear the unknown is like asking you do you exist?
    for every verse of yours speaks of HIM,
    every prose you write sings about his glorious themes,
    To fear the unknown you haven’t learnt,
    for HE dwells in your heart since eternal…

    • Thank you very much for your comment, Soumyav. It is wonderfully written. I am archiving your comments now, so thank you again for participating. Many blessings and much love to you. :-)

  6. Yes, but by the time the package arrives here in California, the tea will be cold!
    I liked the Fleeting Moment of Surprise the best, although they’re all good.

    • Thank you very much for commenting, Bumba. I actually wanted to send it as a Tea Package, so no need to be cold, hehe. :-) Thank you again, many blessings and much love to you. :-)

  7. I like the poem “A Fleeting Moment of Surprise”. When I read the poem, I felt transported in a serene place – somewhere near nature. As I read, I can feel the rustling of the leaves and the cool breeze; it’s like sitting in a comfortable place and enjoying Mother Earth’s gifts to human. Then suddenly, like a dream, there was this instant realization, an awareness that wasn’t there before. I like it.

    • Princess Monica,

      • Hi Subhan,

        Thanks for accepting my crazy comments on this one. Good luck in everything!

        Cheers,
        Monica

  8. Woops, funny! I just nominated you for a blog award. Anyway, I love teas! Join me in. Thanks a bunch~

  9. Subhan, I like ‘Dance, Dance Under The Rain’… I could see and ‘feel’ it. As a child I used to love to go outside when it rained to put my bare feet into clear puddles of water… it felt delicious, it felt wonderful… it felt heavenly. :))) Granny Gee/Gloria

Thank you. An angel smiles every time you leave a comment ♥
