Teardrops Selected poems of H S Venkatesha Murthy

Author Name: H S Venkatesha Murthy | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

Teardrops is a collection of beautifully written poems which deals with emotional and philosophical aspects of human life, many in the hindsight of life and day-to-day events. The poems are highly metaphorical, filled with fine imagery, Indian epical character motifs and human life across time, space and race. The poet is influenced by a verse from Valmiki from the Ramayana, Ruditanusari Kavi, the one who searches tears and stands with it is a poet. In the poem In Search of Tears, Valmiki unexpectedly encounters Sita, a character out of his epic, the Ramayana. Sita, now a pregnant woman, has been abandoned by Rama. With that encounter, the sage poet’s vanity is wounded. She asks several direct and unambiguous questions to the poet. Similarly, in the poem Uttarayana, the narrator deals with the untimely death of his wife. “She climbed the stairs before I did, high in the sky; now, I breathe pain at each remaining step.”

These selected poems represent the skill of a gifted poet and touch the heart of the readers with their delicate expressions and messages.
