BOOK REVIEW:

"My prayers begins with you,
And ends with you, I have,
Nothing to offer but my love!"

 Terracota Dreams is a compilation of 81 beautiful poems that have been written with so much love and with the pain at the same time. Each sentence arrests the eye and makes me admire poetess's ability to creativity to express every emotion in such beautiful words. In some of the poems, it seems that poetess is struggling with her thoughts, she asks herself, asks us and answers and in some poems her imagination is admirable. I am completely mesmerized by the amazing work. For me, Terracota Dreams was an engrossing read and an absolute page-turner. The first poem 'The poet's confession' sets the scene for the book and then I kept enjoying reading more. Some of my favourite poems from this book is The sculptor's sculpture, The bed tea, Tears, Nine yards of love, Nine yards of twinge, Look Beyond, Indian Goddesses of the Kitchen, Find me, My Lover! These are meaningful and very well expresses the feelings of lover. I also loved reading poems which describes her childhood days and I can very well relate to these thoughtful poems. In some of the poems, one can sense woman's desire to be loved. 

The writing style is impressive! The cover image is attractive and the title is apt. I would highly recommend her book to everyone and I am sure her poems will win her the admiration of countless readers!

RATING: 5/5 STARS
