SAVANNAH – A collection of beautiful poetry


 

A collection of
quality poetry is hard to find; Malobi Sinha has achieved in


Savannah

what many writers hope to in their first book – it is simple to read, and
flowing sentences meld the words to blend into a natural whole. A simple yet
breathtaking piece of work, well worth the read. 

“There is a
freshness and vibrancy in Malobi Sinha’s poems that I for one have rarely
encountered in the otherwise Byzantine mazes of much contemporary poetry. The
complex layers of meaning in her poems, beneath their often apparent simplicity,
rewards the reader at every turn.  

Malobi
entitles one of her poems


Your Soul

but I think she is really describing her own world perception, for in


Your Soul

she says: 


‘I breathe in
The beauty of
A thousand lifetimes
With
My Soul ’.”

……………Graham
Pitts, Screenwriter

“Malobi Sinha
writes poems of suppleness and emotional candour… Although Australia is rich
in poetic talent like Ms Sinha, this collection is a testament to her ability
and promise as a new poet. The rewards of her poetry are many, and her poems
encourage repeated readings, growing richer and more complex each time. This is
not a collection to miss.”

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

When a book
is in the making, it is difficult to sometimes see the wood for the trees. I
would like to thank firstly my sister Malindi, for your inspiration in the days
when the poetry I wrote was fleeting and mainly for family – your words across
from the U.K. inspired me to feel that perhaps the seed of words bursting for
light within me was more than just a fantasy. 

My Mum and
Dad. You have always been there, solidarity for me through the dark and the
light. Any words I can say to thank you can never be enough – I am just so
thankful to have your love and support, that it is beyond me to know how to
express my appreciation enough for you. 

My husband
Supriyo – as always, my rock. Thanks for everything – you came to when I was
looking for a friend and have been more than that to me; you have filled my life
with love and laughter, as well as happiness. Thank you. 

To Bil –
Aseem. Thank you too for your encouragement – now for that best seller, yeah!
Thanks. 

I would like
to acknowledge the help from various other writers – including Coral Hull from
Thylazine, Magdalena Ball from the Compulsive Reader, Philip Ellis
from the Australian Reader, and Graham Pitts. In this world of publishing
poetry, you have been staunch supporters, and I cannot express my gratitude to
you enough.

Here are some samples:


Earth


 


Come to me, come to me
Shades of Matilda
Within
The vast silence of
The red Earth.
Stars like
Fireflies
In the wilderness
Above.
Soon, the
Moon will light the way
Up to heavens
Above.
Cricket,
Can you
Hear him?
Chirps
Of
Higher intelligence.
Come to me
The wind will sigh
Oceans roll
Waves crashing
On the
Sand on the beach.
Come
To me.
Peace
On the Earth
At last.




 

 



With you
 


 


I am gone to


The fields out yonder


To the leaves of


Gold and the rattle


Of the river as it


Winds to its destiny;


Do not mourn for me


For I am still here


In the whisper of the


Breeze in


Your hair, the door bell


Ringing in the day;


I am still here


With you


 




 



Love-song
 


 


Like a song of yore,
That moves me with its music.
Like a love-song, beating
The rhythm of my dreams.
There are no words to
Describe your beauty.
You moved me,
With a glance
From across the room.
Your words are like nectar
A drug, pulling me…
Pulling me into your eyes,
Into the Heaven
Of your arms.
I surrender.
I drown.
I love.
