The Floral Quotes by Suresh Thripunithura offers over 30 short pieces of poems and prose, in this book the author has closely examined the relationship of humans with nature. Well, this book is short and crisp to read. One can read it effectively, without losing patience, and can use the content for self-refreshment from time to time. The book deals with themes like life, love, death and some more unspoken things.
Since this is a pictorial book, nature is evident from images to content. The tone of the poems in this book is slightly off the juice, they are rather dark as there are poems on enigma of death and startling nature of life. The expanse of the book is scintillating yet far-reaching and it certainly enhances our limited vista and beliefs in many things that we tend to ignore because we cannot grasp them. The Son of the Soil is indeed a great poem that reminds us of our celestial identity. See the lines from this brilliant poem:
"I love the fragrant truth of the soil,
The stars are the ones,
who work and sweat in soil...
I bow to them who do not falter,
In the struggle of life...
I also like being the son of the soil..."
Truly a masterpiece in itself! Suresh's style of rhyming and prose is way grand in its essence. In the market, there are many poetry collections for entertainment only, however, Suresh's collection is always a soul stirrer and provides food for the thought. Like his other books, this too is great and highly recommended.
