Sister Sarita Manavalan has compiled her poetry into a booklet and would like to share it here in digital form. The poems are reflections on herself, social issues, nature, and the world.
She says, “Through poetry, we can communicate with few words, I think. No need to write long articles! Some of my poems are to bring awareness to the readers for a social change. Some of my poems are my own reflection on myself and my experience of interaction with people.”
“I am a nature lover. I can spend hours watching nature, planting seeds and cuttings, caring for them, and watching them grow. Same way observing animals, birds, and children. Anything in nature attracts me except snakes! I am a reflective person. God speaks to me through nature and people. I also do the same. After I wrote a few poems and shared them with some friends, they encouraged me, and suggested I make it a book.”
