It is a great opportunity to be a part of Daisy Bala’s blog tour for her newly launched book, “Blossoms and Foliages”.
Blossoms and Foliages as the name suggests is a book comprising a beautiful collection of poetry based on nature. The book is being highly appreciated for its wonderful collection of 40 poems revolving around seasons, mid-summer blooms and colours of nature.
Blossoms and Foliages is a fantastic collection of poetry which takes you to the breeze and freshness of the nature.
“It’s my maiden attempt in the book writing sojourn and quite an ethereal one. I enjoyed jotting down my ramblings and monologues in this fresh pick” says Daisy about her book.
My favourite poem in this beautiful collection is “The Next Morning”.
In this poem, Daisy has compared the sunshine with a beautiful woman who retires for the night after grasping the day. The sunshine like an attractive woman comes again the next day to cast a spell on the beautiful nature. I loved the personification of the sunshine to that of a glamorous model who comes out as if “walking the ramp”.
Let me give you a glimpse of this beauty through one of the poems.
The Next Morning
After seizing the day,
The sunshine retracts
Winding up its glory by evening
Retiring for the night
Only to comeback refurbished
Renewed and rejoiced
The next morning.
Again, spreading the ethereal sheet of sunshine
On the entire spectrum
Casting spell on blooming flora
And enchanting all lives!!
Dressed to impress the day
Sun’s golden skirt flares in vogue
Shining in matching ensemble
Walking the ramp of the day.
As time recedes, twilight starts winking frivolously
Sunlight starts retreating
Dawdling to withdraw,
Only to return renewed
The next morning!!
