About the book
Frangipani, a flower native to South America, is a coveted bloom in our country, too. My childhood memories are still redolent with the lingering aroma of the Frangipani, that grew in the portico of my paternal house. It came to mean a lot to me as all my life experiences, somehow got attached to its presence in my vicinity. The Frangipani flower continues to remind me of all that defines me as a person and all that I left behind, as I progressed through life.
Different cultures assign different meanings to this exotic flower. It signifies the strength to withstand challenges, intense love, passion and spiritual experiences spread over multiple lifetimes. It is used in various religious rituals from Hindu, Buddhist and Balinese cultures. It is a symbol of grace and irresistible charm. It represents perfection as it blossoms into five- petal shapes of white and vibrant shades of crimson, yellow and pink. I have tried to disperse the message of this divine flower in the pages of this book through rhymes of positivity and hope. Although terse and concise, these micropoems highlight the profundity of everyday life as comprehended by a receptive mind. I hope these verses resonate with the readers and inspire them to find value and meaning in their existence and life- journey.
