Vices of the Void – A Clamorous Collection of Silent Verses is an anthology of poems that seek to provoke the reader to embark upon a dual journey – outwardly into a dream world of clamor and inwardly into an introspective world of silence.
In this eternal cosmic dance of sound and silence, of dream and sleep, we can awake in an instant and realize that we, the ephemeral were born of nothingness, dream in nothingness and will return back to nothingness. This nothingness is not empty, it is an eternal, infinite Void brimming with life.
Science too is realizing that all matter rises from the nothingness of space and the stars, constellations, galaxies and all of us are tiny specks floating in an ocean of an infinite, inexplicable Void.
This book while exploring myriad themes from the mundane to the abstract celebrates both the eternal and the ephemeral and more importantly affirms life.
