Flowers in the Sunshine

Poetry is a picture expressed in words. Every picture or photograph presents a beautiful framework for poetry. Each picture of Nature is a vision and expression of sublime poetry. A picture or photo of a person, a ruined or dilapidated building, visual portrayals of seasons, rivers, seas, mountains and hills, the dawn, the sky, a stream in the woods or the woods themselves, cities and rural areas, forests and deserts are a vast repertoire for sublime poetry.

“Flowers in the sunshine ” brings forth themes expressing Nature, rustic life, and Lost ream.s such as “The Lost River”, “The Lost City” and “The Lost Deity”, “The Lonely Tree ” The Tree of Destiny”, “The Village Road”.

Rustic life is expressed through a little girl as she, dressed in shabby clothes directs goats along the village road:

” Far from the mansioned rich she lives and plays,

In rustic lands where sunshine is free,

Her shabby dress is rich in life always,

Her village the abode of freedom be.”

The poem “The Mind ” elucidates the freedom of the mind.

‘The body is unable, but the mind can fly,

Fetters of life it breaks open and soars

To heights, in the realms of the sun and sky

To distances, along known and unknown shores.”

Some poems have voiced the eloquence of Nature such as “The Lonely Tree”

Lonely tree, for aeons have you stood,

And watched the world and time fly pass,

Your roots have rested in the soil so good,

And nourished the dew on the growing grass.”

I think the book lacked a little bit of “masala” that could have made it irresistible. I liked the choice of illustration on each page and the editing was done beautifully.

– Trisha Halder

The poet has expressed the nature, birds and the serenity of nature. Perfect usage of wordings and thought.
