traditions of different countries. So “Our Poetry Archive” is literary becoming
a worldwide poetical festival every month. And only a festival can bridge the
gap between every single individual ‘I’ into an ocean of human ‘WE’. Yes, in “Our
Poetry Archive” we do strongly believe in this. Our entire endeavor revolves

We extend our sincere invitation to all our readers and writers alike to
participate in this journey. Like all the previous editions, we have archived thirty
six poems written by poets of various continents with different cultural
backgrounds and literary heritage. We are glad to inform you that the
viewership of our journal is rapidly growing every day. You can have a look
through the Google Stats of the viewership of Our Poetry Archive.
Thank You All!
