Invisible Eye is a collection of forty five poems. The poems are a mélange of emotions: loss of Homeland, Sind and roots find a centre place in the poems. These originate from childhood stories reiterated by my father who was born in Karachi, Sind Undivided India. Isolation, distances, voyages of the mind are some of the other themes interwoven in the poems. The poems wear happy and sad Greek masks depicting life in its candid form; exploring newness and staleness of relationships, nostalgia of places, and stillness of moments captured in frames. Colours in their unique hues diffuse the poems with shades of desire and delusion treading on unknown paths.
