The Return by Suresh Thripunithura is a collection of 16 pictorial poems on a gamut of themes that involve nostalgia, sentiments, nature, flowers, mountains, and so on.
All the poems are lucid and simple to read and understand, in fact the collection is too short, one can read the book twice in one hour. The collection commences with a very beautiful yet deeply rooted poem named ‘The Return’.
The poem shares some beliefs about someone who returns to fulfill some of the incomplete promises or to catch up things that could not take place earlier. An astounding poem on human sentiments and nostalgia! It is these two raw emotions that pull back us from far off land to our hometowns or villages. There is also a good poem that supports the crows – they are god's creations, not bad omen sent by devils.
Even other poems are riveting and holds underlying message for readers. Since Suresh is a nature lover, thus finding his work without nature and flowers is like a soul bereaved of love. You will find a plenty.
Since the collection is short, nothing much can be revealed about the inside themes, it is better you pick it up and see what transformation it can bring to your perspective. 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.
