L. Aruna Dhir’s poems have a meandering note and are marked by lyrical poise and movement. They are philosophical and contemplative. They raise questions regarding relationships and human nature. Ostensibly simple, they are wistful and etched with memorable lines.
These verses – paintings in words of a long, lonely boulevard or a sunny afternoon at the beach or a flock of birds that fly overhead -talk of feelings and emotions, of sorrow and joy, of you, me and others.
Of the first whispers of love when you see the world through rose tinted glasses, of sad farewells as you choose to tread upon a separate path than your loved ones or of couples aging together to watch, hand in hand, sun going down the horizon in the sunset of their lives.
