Nasnin Nasser
  • The author, the thinker, the poet has in her praise a humble jest of a good mind's mentor and steadfast to all art she loves, the grip of trade holds her life in it. A prayer for peace and love to all is her delicate care for the world around. The precious ruminations ensconced in the whirls of her mind graze over the careless wonders and insipid scenes of life. The restraints of the preserved demureness in the glassy world of thrust and caution blaze her unattended candour. The little blisters of the garnered repression have braved to heal through a soulful surmise of thoughts and scribbles. The words rake the color of wisdom. The mind's plea is cast out in strokes of rueful pallor to encircle our spirits in a relentless impasto of her impressions, reveries, perceptions and amusing musings. Here it flows in verse and words the turmoil of passion's relief, the cathartic convulsions of art's pride, the restitution of a wandering mind, a closure to a chase…

Free verse appears to be the norm, and few find inspiration in attempting to read, mark, and inwardly digest streams of somebody else's self ex-pression.

  • Nature! Does she observe? Does she learn? Does she correct her faults? - an indeterminate process, imbued in her differing shades, yet discernible in her transparent actions. Her methods unknown, her movements unseen by generations, she continues to sail unassailable - the primordial advocate of peace, carrying forth a lifeline unscathed across eons! A struggle for power - unrealized by the contenders and non-existent in the material essence of perceiving eyes continues, with Nature as the spectator eclipsing the contestants and emerging victorious in every encounter!
