Book Description

'Sharanya's poems are in her own phrase a form of phosphorescence - glowing in darkness simmering with wonder mythic in resonance boldly embodied hence surprisingly spiritful even spiritual in the finest sense of the word. They are also skeptical and reflective tempering and enhancing the glowing flame. Riptides of Tamil hide beneath or within her honed English for those who can hear and see.' - David Shulman. Sita in a forest loved and left behind looks towards the night sky and sees Lucifer's fall from grace. Inanna enters the underworld holding her heart before her like a torch. It is not easy to bear the weight of light; wilderness takes time to turn into sanctuary. These are poems of exile resurrection impossible love lasting redemption - and above all else the many meanings of grace.
