Poem in Response

Having read “How a workation from Shillong looked like” by Mukti Masih, a very beautiful poetess, Christian, chai-totaler and successful Content Writer from Indore, India – wherein she recounts a visit to one of her favorite cities while working to complete a second book – I was inspired to write this short poem in response…

By wi-fi she works
From the mountains of Shillong
In the markets and parks, then back home

Unlocking her words
That her heart may sing on key
Through prayer, by her love, in a poem
