Blurb

Other Poems and Rustic Goddess by Nivedita Narsapuram is an observation of the life enfolding within us, around us, and beyond us. The poems are written to appeal the senses of the ones dipped in nostalgia; a magic realism lover and the romantics, among us. Also it marks the beginning of a new journey to be embarked on as an agnostic.



My View

This book is a collection of some short but very beautiful poems. I am in love with the quirky out of the box titles of the poems. I always like to quote my favourite lines for the review but this time I want to list the titles...

That Short Button

Unicorn Island

Quater to three

A glimpse of you

are some of my personal favourites. The author has rendered a poetic vision to the small little things straight out of a normal household. Hence anyone can directly relate to them.



The negatives -

The biggest blunder in my eyes is a beautiful cover adorned with the wrong name. Yes, there is a poem titled Rusted Goddess and the cover but all the pages and the title she used as a footer says rustic. I don't know if the writer was in hurry or what but it did ruin something for me.

Overall I will rate a 3/5 for the short-eclectic mix.
