Title : A Season of Shooting Stars
Author : Dhaval Rathod
A Season of Shooting Stars is a beautiful collection of poetry that can easily touch your heart. Personally, I read, write and enjoy poetry so this book has been a perfect treat for me.
It has all the elements that I look for in a poetry compilation and the presentation has been done quite beautifully too. There are cute illustrations every now and then when you turn the pages, so it was quite fun and soothing along the way.
The poems are an ode to the Universe, whose influence and gravity is completely undeniable; to the Women who are whose inner strength and capability can even defy the power of those who claim upperhand, to the lover whose existence is everything, and to Time, whose value can never be taken for granted.
Through these beautiful verses, the author could successfully portray his love for the Universe and the one who is his “Universe”. So I think the purpose has been served.
I would like to conclude this review with a verse from this book that I really liked.
She was a lioness
who quietly pranced into my heart.
And then, with a roar
swiftly tore it apart.”
My rating is 3.75 which I rounded off to 4 ✨
