Ripples…of the soul is a collection of poetry by Chitra Srinivasan. What makes it really interesting, is its simplicity and its ability to relate to the booklover.
Be it her depiction of children
“As you lay in the crib on a soft bed with tiny cushions I saw your small hands”
“In early spring bright wings a sea of flying color in a garden of flowers”
A busy marketplace
“The early morning rush, the train, the bus a crush”
Or the Train of Life
“The train of life when it arrives with its solitary passengers at the platform of death leaves behind memories that wither like flowers on a wreath”.
In this day and age when we are surrounded by the concrete jungle she takes the reader on a virtual trek through nature while sitting in the drawing room. Her description of death is an eye opener as it reveals the complexities of this unchangeable and final truth of our lives. Not to mention her narrative of life, which is equally engaging.
One poem that will particularly touch the reader's heart and connect with every reader is "My Granny." A grandmother is an indispensable part of our lives and this poem brings out in a very simple and charming manner the story of this wonderful woman. A truly appealing collection of verses wherein every poem will strike a chord with the reader.
