Book Description

Book Contents


"The death of the dawn

lamented in the breath of the flautist

that dies in the cacophony

of the morning birds..."

(A stunning turn of phrase from 'Reclusive Me')

Dewdrops of Dawns is a compilation of poems inspired and penned by the exceptional muse of Dilip Mohapatra.

In Dewdrops of Dawns, Dilip bares his heart and soul for all who take the journey through its pages, from book cover to book cover, from beginning to end.

Each page is etched with sweeping images of life and death, love and sorrow, beauty, and the starkness of reality.

You will find yourself returning, again and again to what will become dog-eared pages that are brimming with beautiful imagery, provocative and heart-stirring scenarios written by one who truly understands the power of poetry.

About the Book


Dewdrops of Dawnsis Dilip Mohapatra's sixth collection of poems. The collection has seventy five new poems covering a wide spectrum of themes. The poems draw hugely from the shifting perspectives of the world and reflect its immensity, impermanence and immediacy. Embellished with startling images and metaphors the poems do not belong to any specific type but cover a wide variety which includes almost every genre and category in which poetry is written: narrative, dark, dramatic, satirical, speculative, spiritual, hope, humour and the like. The poems are expected to cater to the reading pleasure of a wide range of generations, from the baby boomers to post millennials.
