Whenever I find myself messed up inside or confused about the direction of things in my life, I always resort to reading and writing poetry. I don’t know how but this is one genre that keeps me sane and content from within. I am glad to pick Connections at such a time in my life.
Connections by Shreesh Kakkar is a collection of heartfelt pieces of poetry which have an ability to resonate with any person reading it. Divided into 4 broad categories – life, heart, soul, mind and power – the poems speak in lyricism with our dormant spirits. A few of them won my heart especially the one at the onset that says –
Poets, they say, are all torn,
Fried in the oil of pain
Washed in the water of rain,
Poets, they say, are not born but made.
The one thing I loved the most about Shreesh’s work was its originality. He didn’t beat around the bush and kept his poems simple yet elegant. The book is by far one of the shortest poetry books I’ve read which did appeal to me. The poems celebrate nuances of love, elaborates upon our inner strength and finely traces the purpose of our lives. I particularly liked the poems under mind & power. They were truly motivating and awe-inspiring. The language is simple and effective in communicating the author’s intent behind his words. Although I couldn’t connect the cover with the inside content, I still liked it.
This is a breezy and at some places, a thought-provoking read. I would especially recommend it to those who want books to start with their habit of reading.
MY RATING: 4/ 5
