I am not a fan of traditional poetry and don’t read poems that often but the blurb of this book definitely looked interesting and hence I picked it up! After finishing this book I was pleased as this collection of poems by Shruti Rathi made a really good read.
Written in a simple language, the poems are divided in 3 parts as Dark, Blue and Sea, named after the title of the book. The poems are short and bring out a whole array of emotions. The poet also talks about the various forces of nature.
The lines bring out the emotions that the poets wanted to express and I really enjoyed reading this collection of poems.
Since the language is simple and the lines rhythmic and easy to follow, I did not feel bored reading poems after poems and hence was able enjoy it as well finish it fast.
This book of poems is good in another way that I am sure to pick it up again sometime to reread them. Some of them are really so thought provoking!
The cover is beautiful and depicts the contents of the book.
Some of my favourites from this collection are – Fear [pg-45],Grief [pg-47],Abandoned pieces[pg -79],Absence[pg-107],Poetry [pg-147],The earth is living [pg-173]
Overall, a lovely collection of poems that will be enjoyed by all, including the ones like me who are really not into the traditional form of poetry.
