This is my maiden poetry-collection drawn from the huge body of my poems featured in various literary journals of global renown and national and international Anthologies brought out by the most prestigious poetry organizations. This collection is my humble offering to the literary world. The poems included in this collection dwell on a wide range of poetic themes that invariably capture the fancy of the votaries of the muse. The themes I have chosen to explore in these poems range from the universal to the contemporary, from the ordinary to the extraordinary, from the mundane to the celestial, from the physical to the spiritual, from the individual to the collective and from the particular to the general, presenting a wide poetic canvas for the readers to attain the bliss of poetic experience. No obscurity these poems thrust on the readers in the name of modern, abstract poetic techniques to leave them baffled as to the theme, the surge of emotions, the chain of thoughts and the tapestry of imagery. Couched in plain and simple language, aiming at clarity, these poems are the inspired products of spontaneity and illumined by vision, they attempt sincerely to stream smoothly into the hearts of the muse’s adorers, offering them ”the true joy of poetry”. That’s all about this poetry-collection. Now, let your eyes race through the poems and let your hearts experience the poetic beauty and joy.
