Staff Picks Staff Picks for February 2014
Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (06:35:55)

The minimalist style and the visual representation paint a clear picture to the readers. My pick for this month is one such poem by a new poet where the economy of words and vivid images strike a beautiful scene.
