Slivers: Chiseled Poetry by Balroop Singh

I was so inspired by Balroop Singh’s latest volume of vivid verse that I endeavored to frame my review in haiku form:


Balroop re-creates

Light from above in new clothes.

Faithful fragments hanging;

Mini-windows showing

Truth in starlit slivers.


Ms. Singh’s work showcases much more depth and breadth than my little tribute, however. The topics, as usual, focus on the positive–healing, flights of imagination, and the beauty both within and without.

If I were asked to choose my favorite, I would choose the fanciful fantasy, “Night Fairy.” I suppose this is hardly a surprise since I write fairy tales, but still. Pay close attention to that one as you slowly nibble your way through this assortment of little gems.

A collection of haikus that should delight lovers of the art form.

    • Yeah, I figured you’d pop in as soon as you knew. : )

      And I’m so glad you liked the poetic tribute, Balroop. I meant every word.

      Also, I used “volume of vivid verse” because we both love alliteration. It was meant something like an inside joke, except that I was serious about it, of course. : )
