Orchids and Other Poems
“These words are the peelings of the skins fallen on the armchair overtime, soaked in the memories of betrayal and merriment”
From- ‘Empurpled Pages’
In this collection of more than 100 poems composed by Manikant Sharma, the words really fall like the peelings of skins, consequent upon the bruises, come out again and again with the ruptures in the mesoderm, refined and dialyzed with the boiling blood flowing in the blood vessels. Sometimes these poems are the chasms stationed in the deep recesses of the heart, flow in the rivulets, pass through the skeletonized corals in the deep sea of lungs, these are the bird songs; the thrush and the finch, the beautiful warblers that cause to melt even the toughest rocky hearts.
These poem have the power to glitter in the enclosing the bony crib-cage. In these poems there is a celebration of Naked truths and the filthy lies when these truths pass though the streets with cymbals in their hands singing with protruding lips and hoarse voices. The poets sometimes speak about the madness of the country, its fears that turn a deaf ear others’ woes. These poems contain the myriad hues of life, written mostly with the silence of midnight oil. There are the images that have never been seen before, the vocabulary that have never been comprehended. There is nostalgia, anger, experiment with sexuality and sensuousness that keep every reader engrossed till the end.
