  1. Both poems are new to me – and wonderful. Thank you.
    Someone (Rumi?) said that poetry is the language of the heart. I wouldn’t argue.

    Love is love. I don’t think there is an age tied to it. However you are right that in India, it is associated with young people in love.
    That last image is beautiful and the poems too.

    Romance has no age. And who says you only love once?

  4. Age shouldn’t matter. After my marriage failed, I thought I’d never find it again. Here I am six years later and I did find it. I’m certainly not young, but romance makes me feel young!

    We are on the same page here. I had lost myself somewhere in my marriage and the acrimonious divorce after years. I needed time to find myself all over again. I chose not to think about another person for a while. Rather give all my energies to my small kids and my own personal growth. Now a part of me is ready to take the second chance, albeit the other part is fearful of trusting someone all over again. Who knows whats in store…
    Lovely poems here.

  6. Oh wow! That poem about an onion… Lovely.

  7. Aah! The two poems! They said it all especially the onion one I loved it to the core.

  8. Love is not age bound. We can find love anytime, anywhere. Loved the poems. Thank you for sharing

    Wonderful poems. Now I want to read Jane Eyre again 🙂 Happy A-to-Z-ing.

  10. Splendid post , Kalpanaa . Thanks for the very lovely poems .
    Best wishes

  11. The poem is powerful in echoing that love is timeless and we can find it in the least expected places. Brilliant.

  12. The final photo sums it all up perfectly! Delightful.

    Another day in Amble Bay!

    Great poems. The onion one clings on like romance 🙂 Loved the pic too.

    Romance and love don’t have to be mutually intertwined – you often hear people say the romance died after a couple has been together for a while. Great poems. And I’m sorry in India it can be very hard.

    The whole article is packed with powerful stuff! Your thoughts and experience, along with the beautiful poems. Simply loved reading through everything.
    And sadly, the facts that you talked about are true. Age old dogmas in India have made it near impossible for elder people to search for true love. But give up we shall not 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    Research is very important, but how much research do writers put in?

    Jane Eyre is one of my favorite stories. And that poem about the onion. Wow. It makes me want to kiss an onion! I have found romance after divorce and I must say, it is the most amazing feeling. I did need to find myself first, but I have been awestruck at how raw and real it feels to be in love again.
