A young, unusual, and distinctive new voice in poetry...
He hopes to try,
He tries to hope,
A scar on his forehead pricks,
He can't seize the day.
So, he marries the night...
Intricately woven, insightful and self-assured, Neelashi's poems are an interesting mix of naivete and maturity. Each poem in this collection is youthful and striking, and tells a story in breathing colours, textured smells, tactile sights and visible feelings.
A not-to-be-missed collection of poems by a poetic genius of tomorrow.
