This poetry though has four different sections but its centered around love for mother (poets tribute to his mother), mother nature, relationships and emotions. The poet begins with his deepest emotions-a personal tribute to his mother and then moves onto greater concerns of ones duties towards the mother that nurtures us all- mother nature. Various relationships come into being through the book those of love, loss, parenting and even love for food. Emotions and feelings therefore seem to be constituting the bouquet that the writer has tried putting together in this book. 

The poetry is extremely simple, straightforward expression of the poet's emotions sans any modification or layering. Some of them especially towards nature highlight the problems and the plundering human beings have caused. The book does connect well with the reader as a memoir but the amalgamation of topics dilutes its very essence. I believe a poetry book should be centered in this theme. From love of nature to love of food is too big a transition of emotion. Further I believe in poetry not being obvious and direct in expression but tangential.  As a first attempt to writing these might have been overlooked however I hope the poet evolves with this feedback and we have many books coming from his pen in future.

Rating: 2.5/5
