In ‘Cockcrow at Noon’ you will witness laughter, despondency, wailings, lamentations, sheer amazement,, naivety, nostalgia, hope, life and an over whelming interface between life and death. There is a deliberate romance with Mother Nature sometimes chastising man’s unfriendly attitude towards nature or what the poet takes liberty to refer to as man’s infidelity to nature yet other times marvelling at nature’s angst and the mistrust of man, resulting in devastating natural disasters that threaten man’s existence, the queer and complex realities and ironies that define man are frontally addressed.
‘Cockcrow at Noon’ is the author’s own artistic kaleidoscopic portrayal and reflection of my thoughts, of man and his society from the traditional, to the peculiarities of our rich mores and ethos which stands us out as a people to the socio-political cum historical and sometimes mundane and spiritual appraisal of our being. These poems are eclectic and do not look away.
