a little flame of kindness
Rises and falls, with each word
That you spill,
into this big, dark world;
A world that’s patiently
waiting for a fire to
Brighten it!
be kind.

Beneath every cloud

There is a story.

A story waiting to burst,

A story of love,

A story of grief,

A story to inspire,

Let it pour!


Malhaar- It’s a beautiful book with the collection of many wonderful poems. The book is divided into 6 parts and each part has a different theme. The poems are based on various emotions such as love, loss, grief, hope, parenthood, faith, self-love. There are so many poems which have so much depth, some were okayish. The language used by the author is simple, easy and interesting.  The cherry on the cake is beautiful Illustrations. I loved each of them, they are all beautifully made. The way the author presented the poems is wonderful. Each and every emotion is expressed in a mesmerizing way. The book started in a good way but the way it ended was amazing. I loved her writing style. It’s simple and connecting. It gives good, positive vibes to the readers. The flow of the poems is good. I loved how the themes were connecting, and interesting. The cover and the title of the book is attractive. I loved the blurb too.

Overall, it’s a wonderful book with raw feelings written beautifully. The illustrations are something I loved most. If you love poetry, Go for it.
