Rays of Reverie is a contemplative collection of poems written by Rosy and Jones. The book offers around 50 wonderful and readable poems. The book is divided into two parts; each poet’s poems are segmented. Rosy has a good share of poems than Jones.
Broadly putting, both poets tried to seek the essence of life through their poems. In fact, this is the major theme in the collection. Yet the book is not only limited to this, it rather also covers abstractness and wandering state of mind of both poets. All the poems are easy-to-read; however, they are slightly difficult in deciphering the meaning.
Rosy’s segment is light and one can predict the nature of poems and meanings from it…but Jones’ section was quite subtle and nudges readers for substantial cogitation. The voice of both poets differs, though not heavily. The collection commences with Poet’s Touch, in this poem Rosy muses at the ocean of opportunities that this world throws at us. She is optimistic about her existence in the universe. It’s about finding a better version of herself. As you chug ahead, you will discover that the poet Rosy has laid more emphasis on ‘Self’ concept. The next poem, ‘The Selfless You’ eulogizes the selflessness of nature.
All the poems are docile and bear a sense of engagement. They are capable of changing our mood and perception towards life that we think comes quite easily in all spheres. Focusing more on life means that the poets want us to remind that there is a cost and effort behind everything, and we humans should respect that and contrive to make the world a better place, we should give up war, pride, prejudice, and such more vile traits. The book screams often – can we make this world a livable place?
The longer you analyze the poems, the more they will enchant you. There runs a sense of positivity and motivation in most of the poems, ‘Desires’ is one such great poem that tells us why we should raise above the ordinary.
An amazing poetic brilliance wafts of this collection. Though the poems are unconventional and not in rhymes, yet they make up for all states of life. It is bound to give sheer pleasure to anyone who picks it up deliberately or unknowingly.
