Poems are like islands in the stream of poetry. In a poetic stream of flowing, gurgling emotions; poems are the islands that hearts and weary souls can find respite in, as they navigate life. Poetry is more than interplay of words and rhythms woven into a pattern. It is an emotion that spills out as verse. And, the interpretation of those verses, by the readers, makes the poem what it is.

Islands in the stream is my first paperback that is a compilation of a few selected poems. This book is divided into two sections and contains 48 poems in total. The first part is titled ‘nature’s rhapsody’ and it contains poems that sing odes to nature in its many forms. The last two poems of this section pay homage to the peace that descended once the streets went silent due to the pandemic (covid-19). The second section is titled ‘Life’s foibles’ and represents life, its desires, its follies and human nature.

The cover for this book is a painting by Nirmala Singh, a renowned artist and writer.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
