Look Inside

The Anchored Boat

(1 customer review)

A verdant hill, a winding mountain road, a river in spate, a naughty child wanting to miss school and a rain soaked morning all come to life as one begins reading this collection. Love & longing, affection & affliction, ignorance & ill-will, victory & vengeance, wilderness & wildlife, curiosity and concern form the central theme of the poems. The poet invites you to hitch a ride on to a peeping cloud or laze around in the garden on a winter afternoon to catch a group of polar bears looking for fish in the arctic snow…all in the sky and deftly puts together a time machine where you can dive into some nostalgia! You can choose to soak the aroma as your granny bakes some yummy buns …and follow the postman from the staircase to your home to receive a letter or giggle at your own reflection in the sparkling waters of the neighborhood well!

A collection of poems not to be missed by poetry lovers!
