Salil asked:

Why poetry and not a novel or fiction?

Salil Poetry contains few words but tells much. Its beauty is that by being condensed it is rich in meaning and open to various interpretations.

Unlike prose, there is no boundary to poetry. There is nothing concrete or black and white. Poetry is mutable, it is transformative. Poetry is the alchemy of hearts. And what cannot be said in prose, can sometimes be said only through poetry.

Poems are word paintings. Poetry doesn’t belong to time; that’s why you can feel as if poems are speaking directly to you. If you enjoy poetry, chances are that you are among those who smell the roses and occasionally stop to feel the moments you’re living.

I can tell you, I have experienced the beauty of witnessing others who do stop and enjoy life, one moment at a time, and who find passion in the flow of these peak experiences.
