Review of my poetry book ' Children of Lost Gods'

JULY 23, 2014 SHWETA1012    

Author- Tribhawan Kaul

Poetry:Broken lines.Poems are best described when it speaks more in less words,when it takes time to sense the meaning and depth of words ,and is able to enlighten one’s heart with the untold story and a new discovery.

“Children of Lost God’s”,by Tribhawan Kaul is one such book which enlightened my heart with aesthetic lines,speaking of truth,delivering the messages on many issues, keeping loyalty to heart.

All the poems of this book are plugged with plethora of emotions ,and they not only depicts a single flavour ,but engrossed with multiple flavours.Where one poem defines the meaning of love, other defines love for nature.

His poems traces out various fragments of life.Basically he focuses on the topic : Nature, Love, God,Relationships.Also, his poetries gave light on sensitive issues like terror attacks,and the poem tilted ‘Soul Searching’ ,gives an enormous message and meaning to a life, from what we are going through, and the sins knowingly or unknowingly we have been a part of.

Maturity in poetry writing is lucidly shown in his poems. Interesting stories are presented in the form of poems.
My favourite lines from one of the poem is -
‘Dense clouds pregnant with rain.’
The way poet lucidly and intellectually presents the poems ,comparing simple things to an imaginative new level, is way impressive.

‘Nano Poetry’ is my favourite section.In Nano Poetry ,poet focuses on some small ,yet core fragments of life, in the form of short and crisp poetry.In ‘Nano Poetry’, the topic which are beautifully defined are- Selfless, Realization,Dreams, God I love you, Freedom, Dilemma, HIS grace, Dilemma, Ego, Life, Peace, Death, War,Builders, Orphan, Apathy and Helpers.

Here are two lines from one of his poem-
“Whenever and whatever touches my heart
Words take shape in rainbow arch”
So true! His poems truely depicting that his heart melted and waxed in the form of words in this book.Making a rainbow arch, his poetry floats in the lake of different colours.

A book which is apt for an ardent poetry reader, and who loves to grasp the meaning, hidden behind the words.A beautiful compilation of poems where every poem holds the power to nourish heart.
