Soumya Bharathi’s From the heart of a homemaker comprises twelve heart-touching poems. Written in a simple language, this poetic collection is a window into a homemaker’s heart.
What makes a poem connect with the reader? Is it the rhyme scheme, flow or language? It is all this, but most of all it’s the emotions behind the verses which bind them with the reader. Not all the poems in this book are rhyming, or metered, but one thing I can say with conviction is they are written from the heart. Her verses are truly lyrical and leave a deep imprint. The messages conveyed might be true of many homemakers out there.
A homemaker’s job is one of the toughest in the world. For unlike other jobs, there is neither a monetary compensation nor recognition. Her dreams take a back seat, while she caters to the needs of her loved ones. And most often she loses herself; her identity forgotten, her desires shelved or meshed with those of others.
The formatting is a little haphazard. If the poems had been aligned properly, it would have made the reading experience even more memorable.
The cover picture is unfortunately not quite appealing. But I hope readers do not judge this book by its cover!
I liked these poems and would recommend all to read, not just homemakers. It’s just 32 pages long, but leaves an impact.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. However, it does not affect my review and rating.
