laughter spilling over the corners of buddha’s eyes
moonlight shivering through
dew drops on leaves
the men in robes are poets here (Pagoda Poems)
Poetry is just not words, neither is it just ideas. Overall, it is a rare construct echoing all of life and beyond, observing it, questioning it, imbibing it. In her latest collection of poems ‘Salt & Pepper: Selected Poems’ Sukrita depicts a poetic landscape where a voice reaches out to something beyond itself and some kind of articulation requires to get us closer to that voice that connects into a very different consciousness.
