Haunting Poems


These poems are dedicated to:

The Paediatricians, Psychiatrists and General Practitioners who saved my life and who afforded me physical and emotional sanctuary...Dr Kalra, Dr L Chang, Dr Marian Foley, Dr Solomon and Dr W Ahmed and all your colleagues; I will never forget your salvation, wisdom, compassionate dedication and TLC. Gratias tibi ago.

For my teachers = school, college and university. I am indeed fortunate and utterly grateful to have met the most wonderful, fantastic and devoted teachers...In thought and deed, you are cherished daily.

To James whom sacrificed too much to rescue and protect me, he is the brightest shining star and i am forever in your debt.

For the Artists I model for - your art is treasure, thank you for making my body and mind better.

And to the Almighty Trinity, thank you for answering my prayers!

Music and the Alchemy of Friendship (with a dash of Noah's wine) is the elixir of life.
