Title: PETALS OF A WITHERED FLOWER
Author: BAAJI AKURA
No. of Pages: 32
Petal of a Withered Flower offers poems that are rich and diverse in their expressions. Baaji tackles, very efficiently, contemporary subjects one would assume are beyond his age.
Without doubt, this is a poet who has observed the world, its rotations, and revolutions and the humans who make it their home. His words are unignorably evident of his aliveness.
