Wet Silence: Poems about Hindu Widows
Paperback – July 1, 2015
by Sweta Srivastava Vikram (Author)
Wet Silence by Sweta Srivastava Vikram is powerful and emotionally deep. Her poems have a way of pointing more directly at reality, rather than just defining it. Using metaphor words as tools for the transmission of experience, thoughts and feelings of each individual widow women.
One of the poems that remain recorded in my mind after reading the entire book was “Craving you”, it reflect the emotions of that widow, the way she describe the way she use to feel when he kissed her; ” Your kiss reached my lungs, I lost my heart.” It automatically makes you feel the depth of the kiss, leaving you breathless while you continue reading the poem.
I liked one piece where she wrote, ” I press my fingers against your memory – the curse of being a poet, feeling everything so deeply. ” it just grabs hold of you, it’s a feeling that comes from within, something that starts in, and flows from, the heart.
Overall, this poetry book is passionate, mesmerizing, heartbreaking and well written.
