Tides Enormous chronicles the poet’s everyday life-instances and experiences. A keen observation of human life, society and the natural world helps the poet develop a finer poetic sensibility that the book exhibits. Assemblage of fifty poems that are unique in every sense, the book gives meticulous details of every small instance that conceptualizes life in its entirety. These poems do have themes and integral rhythms of their own, each distinct and separate but beautifully constituted. The striking and lucid language construction, at times, helps the poet to posit each poem in a more artistic way. This helps the poet to deal with the bitterness of the gloomiest emotions in a jovial and festive way, retaining the depth of emotion it tends to present. This affirmative touch in the poems hails the poet’s philosophy life and existence, thus lends unique charm to the book.
