The Flower Pot Sayings by Suresh Thripunithura is a sublime collection of over 30 poems with beautiful pictures. Being a pictorial poetry book, the book spellbound the heart of readers. And those who love nature and cannot live without it will find it as a treat.
From the title one could guess that the book is built around flowers and nature dominantly. The poet is of the opinion that flowers and plants around us teach us something about life and its phenomena. It is not a direct collection, the meanings are lying hidden, from the nature and flowers and plants one can get a better view of life. For instance, the Garden Berries poem is evident of nature's way of starting and ending the process in a subtle way. The garden is an epitome of change that nature does. In the poem, Welcome Rain plants welcome rain with glow.
All the poems are easy to read and if one reads twice, meaning of each poem gets understood. The poet has presented many a type of flowers in the book and from each one he is trying to say something. Isn’t amazing? To soothe mind, one should keep this type of collection handy. The book is more than an anti-depressing pill, read it and feel the elixir of healing.
The poet is a photographer and hails from Botany field, much of his know-how is fairly evident in the collection. Other than the flower coverage, the book also subtly sheds light on seasons like rain and summer, comparison of heart with a budding plant, what do we humans give back to nature, paradise feel and much more. It’s a poignant collection on nature with flowers in the cynosure. A highly recommended poetry collection for broken hearts to nature appreciators.
