Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (07:35:55)

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.

Staff Picks Staff Picks for November 2013
Posted by mamta on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 (16:49:19)

November is slowly coming to an end and we are on the threshold of another new year. Autumn and winter poetry are often melancholic and sad and many times it reflects the inner feelings of the poet. Autumn poems always have wonderful visuals mainly due to the changing color of leaves that lend color to the trees and the ground once they fall. My pick of this month is one such poem which is rich in imagery with lots of color and visuals.
