Your Sonnet For The Day was inspired by Pratibha’s own musings across her childhood, which were spent in Scotland, Iraq and other countries before she returned to her homeland, India.
The well known sonnet is a short poem of fourteen lines that revolves around love and emotions, but it can also be the perfect style for expressing a single idea or thought. Pratibha’s sonnets go beyond the conventional romantic pentameter and explores strong emotions of life through her quatrains. Her sonnet’s power comes from her ability to capture the essence of our emotional entanglement with life clearly and succinctly.
These compositions are well received for its setting in a modern tableau, which serves as a wonderful context to introduce poetry for children within the Common Wealth.
Adults will also find the prose familiar, as each sonnet exfoliates the whispers that we all have, but rarely find the words to express them.
Surely, this book will awaken the poet in each of us.
