Overview

This eBook celebrates in all amplitude, ambiance, and richness, the beauty, brain, and brilliance of Poetic verse-from the natural to the niche, from the visible to the sensual, from passion to profession, and from the traditional to the trend-setting-in a multitude of poetic forms. It starts ith the seasoning HAIKU in perfect harmony with nature, romance and love, life and lance, and everything "soft, sweet, and sensual", perfect or otherwise, and in all "Wine, Dine, and Shine "- the subject of the first section - yet preserving the original three-line & 5-7-5 syllable format of HAIKU. And as the pages flip, it takes the reader all through the second section to a flamboyant and flavorful world of short, rhymed, rhythmic, and lucid verses in couplet, quartet, and free verse styles-some rare, somewhere-that are "BETTER ROMANCE AKIN TO THE ROSE". The placid, poignant, and sometimes emotion-rousing imagery knit through out as the poetic numbers flow in metered as well as livid patterns, create a sense of voluntary containment to turn the pages one by one-suddenly awakening the delightful reader with jolt from the last page-only to drive him restart from the first page again, till he can find no more room for leisure to continue.
