Wishing you all a happy Mothers Day. Today, I am sharing my review of Hues of Hope, Selected poetry by Balroop Singh.
What Amazon says
Hues Of Hope is the collection of readers’ favorite poems from my poetry books. These poems explore the hope that lies within our heart, hope that whispers each morning to look at the horizon, hope that inspires us to look beyond the chaotic world and take the next step to vanquish the fears that try to fetter us. It promises to take us to an oasis of peace, unravels magical moments of joy, as beams of love calm our senses. It even guides us through dark alleys to show the streaks of light that shimmer through the clouds.
Hues of Hope is a collection of beautifully descriptive and vivid poems all linked by the common theme of hope. The poems are grouped under appropriate sub-headings that reflect the different shades and nuances of hope, moving from the most clear and shining concept of hope to the more complex evolvement of hope from difficult situations and emotional pain. Reading this book from start to finish was like following the path of a person’s life, starting at young adulthood when every choice seems simple and obvious, and following the dead-ends, bumps, lows, and highs that mark our progress to maturity and eventually old age.
An example of two beautiful verses from the earlier poems are:
“Wind whispers to leaves;
“Fall gently, don’t ruin the spread
Mingle in its violet hues
To enhance the ethereal beauty.””
From Tread Softly here, and
“Silver tumbles down with passion
Sunbeams lace it with rainbow colors
Dusk dawdles with orange hues
A damaged tree trunk glimmers”
From Transient Waterfall
An example of a stunning verse from the later poems is:
“Is it the wrath of Mother Nature?
Is it man-made catastrophe?
Questions blaze with the flames
Answers would never calm down
The ache within their hearts.”
From How Fragile Is Life!
A collection that all poetry lovers will enjoy.
