Mehfil-e-Chaos by Syed Asim Hussaini | Book Review

Summary:

The syllable notes, the phonetic beats and the cluster of words! Poetry, as I call it the love child of language and emotions, the construction of rhythm from thin air, imagination being the lone helper and the outcome of which is either an organized set of emotional waterfalls or intense spiritual chaos! ‘Mehfil-e-Chaos’, is a handpicked collection of such emotional waterfalls on topics ranging from faith, love, family, friendship, and everything else that a heart can conceive.

The Camphor of Night by Samir Satam | Book Review

Summary:

This day, Today, when looked at from the window of Future; Wouldn't it seem golden? But today it feels like just another day. Why does all this preciousness have to pass to be seen? Why can't it get its due while it lives? Unfortunately that's the way it has always been. The Future seems to hold a certain value for The Past. But The Present seems to be like an unfinished coin. It's still incomplete to derive any worth.

The poems in this collection 'The Camphor Of Night' are little things stolen from life which found their way to a treasury box in which they lay locked for years until these little things developed a life of their own and hence they need to be set free, because now is their time to breathe.

I am a home to butterflies by J. Alchem | Book Review

Summary:

A captain sinks with his ship
then why cannot a lover?

This collection of poetry is all about you and me, but I am afraid it will no longer be about 'you and me' once a reader picks it up. It will then be about them only.

It will be all about the one they loved like thunder, about the one they struggled hard to keep, who had left them in the middle of their 'forever', about their world shattering into pieces, about them gluing together every piece, and about them falling in love one more time.

And if you still think it is about you and me, you haven't loved someone like thunder, yet.

It is a dive deep into the circles of emotion, empathy, acceptance, healing and insights into a different perspective towards life.

Echoes by Neelam Dadhwal | Book Review


Summary:

Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.

In such serenity, I sit and think saturated with thoughts. A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle. Nature is succour. One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.

It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.

Poems for a Princess by Mark Brooks | Book Review


Summary:

This is a book of poems I have written especially for a very special girl - "The Princess".
I knew the moment that I saw her that I had fallen for her. The signs were all pointing to falling for her - the racing heart, the heart skipping a beat, the butterfly feeling in my stomach, the legs feeling like jelly, struggling to get my words out, the blushing etc., etc.
Unfortunately, I've been too afraid (I guess that's the best way to describe it) to tell her how I feel, so I thought I'd write her a book of poems to try and tell her how I truly feel about her. I always struggle expressing how I feel verbally, I guess for fear of looking stupid and maybe being rejected and so writing down how I feel is just my way of expressing my feelings.
I just hope she likes them!
