star star star star star
“As the name of the E-book suggests the poems/poetry has been very soulfully depicted in each of the poems written by Payal Roy. She has been extremely thoughtful and sincere in her application of vocabulary to express her creative thoughts. This is a wonderful rendition!
Looking forward to see many more of them(poems, prose) coming! ”

“Wonderfully written poems..Each poem has its own character…I just loved reading those beautifully expressed poetry.. It is a great piece of poetry !!
Looking forward to read more poems by Payal Roy….”
“In her piece titled “A Child in You,” she encourages the reader to quit being so bored/boring and to remember that you only live once and should enjoy every moment of it. The poem invites you to remember all of the simple joys of your childhood running on green lawns and seeing the magic in nature.
Many of the poems include elements of nature such as sky, grass, flowers, and trees and most of them talk about life being precious and to have hope and enjoy the beautiful world by appreciating it each and every day. Among the inspiring photos are images of the sunset over Lotus Temple in India, a beach in France, the countryside in Prague, a mountain in Spain, clouds in Poland and flowers in the Netherlands.
In “Light,” Roy contemplates light being a flicker of hope, a true spirit, a lack of ignorance, or a thirst for knowledge. In this collection of more than 40 poems, you’ll find pieces titled, “Reach Out,” “Colours,” “Saga of Life,” “A Never Ending Hope,” and “In a Nutshell” among many others.”

Ebook reviewed by Lori M for Readers Favorite : “Poet Payal Roy explains in the preface that poetry has been a major focus in her life since junior high when she was required to create a poem as a class assignment. Inspired by the emotion of writing as well as nature photography, she includes some of her pictures (as well as those taken by her husband) in the book as well.

In her piece titled “A Child in You,” she encourages the reader to quit being so bored/boring and to remember that you only live once and should enjoy every moment of it. The poem invites you to remember all of the simple joys of your childhood running on green lawns and seeing the magic in nature.

Many of the poems include elements of nature such as sky, grass, flowers, and trees and most of them talk about life being precious and to have hope and enjoy the beautiful world by appreciating it each and every day. Among the inspiring photos are images of the sunset over Lotus Temple in India, a beach in France, the countryside in Prague, a mountain in Spain, clouds in Poland and flowers in the Netherlands.

In “Light,” Roy contemplates light being a flicker of hope, a true spirit, a lack of ignorance, or a thirst for knowledge. In this collection of more than 40 poems, you’ll find pieces titled, “Reach Out,” “Colours,” “Saga of Life,” “A Never Ending Hope,” and “In a Nutshell” among many others.”

Just for a minute, to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday schedule, from the daily monotony of work and the deadlines at workstations…

How would you like to close your eyes and imagine yourself in a utopia of  green paradise, where you witness a poetic, romantic  saga taking place in the magical embrace of Nature in all her splendour, in lush green forests with wildflowers, fairies, humans and elves?

A friend in need is a friend indeed.  If you have had a group of best friends  somewhere, who have been there for you, during your tough and challenging times or you have helped such friends in their times of need… wouldn’t you like to hold on to such wonderful memories which give you strength and optimism to move forward and enjoy life for what it is?

If you love to travel, love nature and her beautiful creations, won’t you want to keep such memorable moments close to your heart? The touch of amber of the sun in the clouds , the brilliance of red and blue in the tulip gardens, the tranquility of the sandy beaches of the coasts, the vast sea of life as you sail through it…

If you can see them all in front of you, and you want to know more about the saga of friendship, love, life and travel in all its vibrancy and emotions, then you can find out more about them by visiting any of the links mentioned below.

All of these links take you to my e-book : Memoirs- The Soulful Recollection which will tell you about fantasy of nature, friends and their support, togetherness, inspiration and love for each other. It is a worthwhile and a memorable experience  I would say, and I chose to write it all down in the form of contemporary poems, which I have presented to the world, to you 🙂

Life is a journey of a variety of experiences that are woven together in our minds, kept in our hearts, and sometimes forgotten, to make way for newer experiences to enrich and strengthen us. We all learn so many lessons from life, that prevents us from making the same mistake twice, and takes us forward to achieve newer goals and create new ideas.

I gathered Ten facts of life from my experiences about nature, people and the situations around us.

They are written below:

  • There is always the cycle of Karma (the work you do) which will continue to affect your life as long as you live.. so do good Karma, it will yield you good results. If the Karma is bad, it would give you bad results. Best of all , do the Karma without expecting results, but it is so very difficult to accomplish; yet we have to keep trying, for this enriches our mind and makes us positive and strong.
  • Help and assist people whenever you can, without expecting back any help from them. Helping others and seeing a smile in their faces, along with their blessings, makes you feel real good and lifts up your spirit, so that you can focus and accomplish your task successfully.
  • Never underestimate any person in your life. You never know how that person can help you out in sudden occasions. Also, a person who may come across as helpless and weak in your eyes, may not be so.
  • First impression is often not the last impression. In today’s world appearances are highly deceptive, so never judge people from their outward appearances or the image they project.
  • Avoid spending time with people or reading or watching stuff which exude negativity and demoralizing attitude. It affects your thinking and prevents your from moving forward. Instead, spend time with positive , optimistic people, read and watch things which inspire and motivate, as a positive attitude even in seemingly impossible situations, often takes you far and helps you deal with things in life.
  • Respect and love nature and her creations..look out of the window everyday and onto the sky with her variety of colours and those snow white or dark grey clouds adorning the sky. Look around and hear the voices of nature, away from the daily hustle and bustle of life. Nature transcends her positive energy into you and heals you from within. Always love nature and her beautiful creations.
  • Listen to music, the genre which you love most at least some days or everyday for a few hrs in the month. It refreshes you and makes you prepared to look forward for what is to come.
  • Keep searching for true friends throughout your life, and work hard to hold on to the ones who truly love you for who you are.
  • Find that one person in your life who will love you and accept you as you are, and would never want to change you, and would stand by you, no matter what endeavours you choose to follow and accomplish, provided they are for the betterment of all.
  • Respect and be friendly with all colleagues in the workplace, because you never know who would be at your side when you climb up or down from the ladder of success,and you see the same faces at different levels of success above or below you.

Metaphors of Life-an excerpt

Metaphors of life — this is a short excerpt from my latest contemporary poetry ebook, that has a collection of non fiction, inspirational poems and articles based on my life’s memoirs about friendship, travel, nature and making choices at every cross-road of life, which are inspiring me to unravel the ongoing quest about life.

I post this excerpt from my e-bookMemoirs: The Soulful Recollection , and your comments are highly welcome for this post .

LIFE, as we all know is a journey…a journey through crests and troughs of emotions, through small and large potholes of troubles, over suddenly created walls of obstacles, through jungles of competition, cutting through thorns, yet, heartily feeling the fragrance of the hard-earned victories; swimming in dark waters of sorrow, struggling to find an anchor…getting it unexpectedly, and swimming over to the much priced banks of joy…

Getting decorated with ornamental flowers of love, tasting the delicious manna of care and affection, in evergreen gardens of peace, wishing to remain in a utopian paradise of hope and faith for eternity…the goodwill of our deeds guiding us like the guardian angels, those fruits of knowledge looking so fresh in those enchanted trees of harmony which stand on strong roots of support on vulnerable grounds of desires and expectations…and stars of fortune shower colourful beads of memories which splash and twinkle on the ever winding roads to our destinies…

Whom we meet…whom we leave…who go away…who return again…who’re lost forever…and, who always remain in our hearts till the end of time.

Today is 14th of Feb 2012, and its Valentine’s Day! After 3 weeks of icy cold winds and freezing cold, it has finally begun snowing , and the temperature has improved. Being Valentine’s Day today, the snow has added sweet romance in the air, with its snow-white beauty and grandeur . Celebration of Valentine’s Day in the beautiful snow, with boxes of Lindt &  Sprüngli chocolates, gourmand, espresso, candies, softies, little showpiece of love birds, love hearts, soft toys and stuffed toys like bunny rabbits, little puppies, teddy bears, twinkling starry trinkets, trendy rings, black forrest cakes, pastries , apple tarts, gallettes and loads of other goodies… have added a charming festivity and sweet romantic moments in the air today.

Restaurants and pizza corners known for their authentic ethnic cuisines and excellent customer services are filled to the capacity today, where couples have romantic candle-lit dinners with red wine , a fine assortment of main course dishes and an even sweeter and a finer dessert amidst the romantic notes from the piano, the violin or the spanish guitar.

While the mood is set to celebrate Valentine’s Day, the landscape outside sparkles in full splendor with crystals of snow, shining in the moonlight like precious and priceless diamonds. As far as you look on, you can see the trees, roads, houses, rooftops, buildings, pavements and parks, all painted in pure white swift brush strokes of snow, soft and fluffy, feathery and flaky, falling and looking back at you with its gleaming and sparkling crystal eyes 🙂

It seems as if the snow is saying to you– Enjoy today, enjoy the moment, enjoy my white, soft and fragile feathery touch, enjoy Valentine’s Day amidst my tender-white romantic settings… and when summer comes, you will remember my snowy sparkles of this day, when I left my mark through my delicate tender touch …
