I've lit with the fire
in your eyes
and in memory
I burn, I melt."
"Indian Love Poems" is a very unique anthology filled with sensuous, dreamy and romantic wonders. There are love letters, intellectual musings and descriptions of passionate intimate moments.
A few poems are erotic without being overly offensive. One poem I thought was especially beautiful was "The Loom of Time." I also enjoyed the poem that describes a list of mundane daily chores and then has a surprise ending. "Desire" by Sudeep Sen actually made me laugh.
Many of the poets featured in this book are hopeless romantics and you can really feel the longing in their poems. I also found some of the older poems translated from Sanskrit to be especially beautiful. These are poems to read again and again to experience every nuance. Some poems display religious devotion and talk about ideas like reincarnation. However, Jesus is mentioned twice.
Since the book is so small it feels a bit like you are reading a diary. Once you start reading you almost enter a secret world.
