About Sanskriti

Unaware that she decided to change her profile name, we asked Sanskriti again to provide some information about herself. She is still a Literature student from India and is now a published short-story writer. And yes, she is also a poetess. A poetess, who writes beautiful words and combines them with images.

Her inspiration she gets from others such as Yuri Kazakov and Ivan Bunin. She finds it rewarding for her to write about human emotions and refer this to nature.

About the poem

The smell of home, the title of the poem is something that anyone can relate to. The feeling of comfort and something that you can call your own. Or to put it in the poetess’ words:

“It’s volatile and subjective connotations.”

But, what if there is doubt. What if you need to ask of the other to tell those things, you long for? Just like Sanskriti did. This is a poem that goes two ways and it is up to you to decide upon the way to read this. Clearly the gift of a talented poetess, that we are more than proud to share on our website.

The smell of home

The smell of home

Tell me you knew what
it meant to be home.
Tell me you had stolen
the smell of home for
dimes and nickels
and you secured it
in a jar beneath the earth.
Or better, tell me,
you inhaled a part of it
and it heaves with you
every night and every day.
