Moments We Love by [Balroop Singh]

My Review

Last year I read Sublime Shadows of Life by Balroop Singh and loved it. It delighted me to read Moments We Love by the same author. I enjoyed Singh’s poetry style. The poetry in this book depicted deep emotions, sensitive to human relationships, and appreciation of nature. It reflected the vivid imagination from the author’s personal experience and her observation of the surrounding circumstances.

The poetry collection is divided into three sections. Moments of Love in section one included poems of the passionate and magical feeling of young lovers, the lovers drifting apart, and turning against each other, and the return of love brought above by cuddling of the grandchildren. Moments of Harmony in section two included poems about nature and seasons. Moments that make Life in section three included poems about buried dreams, moment of tranquility, moment in waiting, moment of deceit, moment of waiting, and moment of new beginning.

Section three ended with the poems When I Go and The Last Smile as the author’s thoughts of the transience of life.

When I Go

Don’t grieve over me when I go

I would be around you

In your laughter, in your mirth

In your reveries, in your recluse

 I would live in your thoughts

My words would flutter merrily

To remind you

How transient is life!

My smiles would gleam

In the flowers of your garden

In the soft sounds of breeze

That would touch the trees

My memories would linger

Around you when you

Watch the clouds

And light that shimmers through

Look at the birds flying home

Let them calm you

With the thought –

Detachment is disconcerting

But true.

 

The Last Smile

This shady grove – my resting place

Lush green leaves – my lullabies

Fragrance of roses soothe me

Songs of nightingale regale me

But I can hear the sobbing too,

The moaning, the entreaties

Day after day he comes

To wake me up

To remind me of promises

Of eternal love

I yearn to break free

To rise and smile, one last time

To see the orange glow

Setting the clouds on fire

Many hues dance in between

As sun’s last smile of the day fades.

 

I highly recommend this book and other books by Balroop Singh to the poetry lovers.

About the Author

Balroop Singh, an educationalist, a poet and an author always had a passion for writing. She would jot down her reflections on a piece of paper and forget about them till each drawer of her home started overflowing with poetic reminders, popping out at will! The world of her imagination has a queer connection with realism. She could envision the images of her own poetry while teaching the poems. Her dreams saw the light of the day when she published her first poetry book: ‘Sublime Shadows Of Life.’ She has always lived through her heart. She is a great nature lover; she loves to watch birds flying home. The sunsets allure her with their varied hues that they lend to the sky. She can spend endless hours listening to the rustling of leaves and the sound of waterfalls. She lives in San Ramon California. You can visit her blog at http://balroop2013.wordpress.com
