Visit to the Mountains by Barsha Sahoo

Barsha Sahoo

 

Barsha Sahoo is 17 years old, from Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. Reading poetry of different poets, irrespective of age, time and culture is one of her hobbies. She likes to write poems about places and people she loves. She wrote ‘Visit to the Mountains’ when she was 15, after a walk to these mountains in her dad’s native place. Her favorite poem is ‘The vagabond’ by R. L Stevenson. To write a poem, the poet has to picture it first and Barsha was an artist way before she was a poet.

Poetry: Matrices by Rony Nair

Matrices by Rony Nair

Rony Nair

Rony Nair’s been a worshipper at the altar of prose and poetry; they have been the shadows of his life, the bedsit at the end of a long day; the repository that does the sound of silence inimitably well. Rony works as an oil and gas Risk Management consultant and has travelled extensively, fronted dangers often. But that’s his day job, the one that pays for bread and bills.

Rony was a published columnist with the Indian Express. He has been published by Sonic Boom, Quail Bell Magazine, YGDRASIL journal, Mindless Muse, Yellow Chair Review, Two Words For, New Asian Writing (NAW), Semaphore, The Foliate Oak Magazine, Open Road Magazine, Tipton Review, Antarctica Journal, North East Review, Muse India, and YES magazine, among others. He cites V.S Naipaul, A.J Cronin, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, John Braine and Nevil Shute and F.S. Fitzgerald as influences on his life; Philip Larkin, Dom Moraes and Ted Hughes as his personal poetry idols. Larkin’s’ collected poems would be the one book he would like to die with.
