The Crooning Wishes by Sailee Tiwari is a wonderful book of 20 sublime poetry and prose. The book is short and crisp, easy to read and can soothe one’s seething mind. Before every poem or prose start, there is a picture that tells about it. In this book, the author has put her queer wishes, vivid imaginations, and dreams. The book talks about some other different world, eulogizes, epiphany, surrealism, and much more.
The book opens with ‘That World’ – a sort of poem that portrays a world which is free from sadness, there nature is abundant, and one can live a good life, free from prejudices and suppression. The rich description of nature in this free-verse poem is captivating.
Likewise, there are poems on memories, childhood, street child, and most importantly on women power. For instance, the poem Mother is a great one that shows how a mother never tires when it comes to support her kids emotionally. The backdrop painted in this poem is indeed thought evoking. Poems raw on feminism are ‘She is the Fire’ and ‘She Walks’ – these two poems depict the stance of a woman…wow…she is like mud…so calm and elegant when she walks. Indeed praiseworthy. Likewise, there is prose and poems on other themes as well but readers will feel that there is concurrent surrealism in the book. The poet wonders about her past life, childhood glory, and how things change with time, one either adopts or mulls over the lost days of youth and glory and much more.
Before we conclude the review, let’s see some lines from one poem to feel powerful with the author:
“Do not let your soul defy the meaning of joys,
Let go of the moments that disrupt you,
It’s just like a storm that destroys peace.”
