Delve into a book of verse exploring different topics and different genres, all with a RITUal twist.
A collection of poetry drawing on the experiences of the writer, ranging from matters of the heart, love for the family, situations in life and some verses written with a humorous twist.
Anyone that follows this blog will realise just how much I love poetry. I enjoy writing it, and reading it too.
Ritu Bhathal’s collection of poems is accessible, easy readable poetry that warms the heart and keeps you smiling. It would appeal to everyone. It’s not high brow, it’s very down to earth, human and touches upon so many topics that readers will relate to – such as the trials and tribulations of bringing up children, family life, and relationships. It’s very witty, and made me smile in lots of places.
The chapter headings give you an excellent indication of the breadth of poems covered:
Family Rituals, (children, motherhood, being a daughter and sibling, even a few poems about cats!)
Life Rituals – Life, Different cultures, Christmas and positivity – and Ritu’s poem But I Smile Anyway that is the title of her blog: https://butismileanyway.com/
Rituals of The Heart. Tender first love and sizzling passion too !
Rituals to make you Smile. Lots of witty ones in this section!
Would I recommend it?
Indeed I would. I rate it 4 stars, a very lovely collection of poems.
