Thank you The Book Genie review programme for this wonderful book on poetry.
Writing poetry is difficult and reviewing is all the more tough but this beautiful piece has made it very easy by just being it the way it is. In the 158 pages Mukhpreet Khurana has mastered the art of thought provoking.
I personally loved the cover. It had no picture or unnecessary ornamentation but a dead blunt black space which is so fulfilling on itself. Next is the title of the book – Unlocked silences; it’s something more beautiful and ethereal.
There are 117 poems divided into two parts- the first 53 poems do not fall into any specific category and the second set of poems fall under the category of – A new beginning.
