Splashes of Hues
Neha Batool's new anthology, Splashes of Hues, combines accessibility and depth. These warmly appealing poems concern deep and personal themes like self-worth, fulfilment, rejection, love - all splashed onto the page from a colourful palette (Colourful Melodies).
The poems are often very short and make a single, telling statement (Wings and Autumn Leaf).
They mainly draw on nature for their vivid imagery. In Thalassophile, the subject of the poem identifies with sunsets and splashing waves.
Neha Batool encourages her readers to be free (Be You), to cultivate self-worth (Self-Worth), and not its opposite (In His Shadows). We need others (The Magician and Friends) and a sense of integrity (Unity).
These poems are little uplifting gems inspired by ‘facets of life'. We are asked to share Neha Batool's sense that ‘every day brings a new adventure', one that will improve our sense of self-worth, we hope.
