The Title itself gives us a hint about the amalgamation between the poem and the poet. There are certain natures of which the mutual influence is such that the more they say; the more they have to say. For these out of association grows adhesion, and out of adhesion, amalgamation. That’d what poetry and poet all about.
The book has five subdivisions in it- 1) Are you looking for that poet 2) A poet as a young man 3) making a poem 4) a poem comes alive 5) a poet
I remember somewhere someone had said that In an age when nations and individuals routinely exchange murder for murder, when the healing grace of authentic spirituality is usurped by the divisive politics of religious organizations, and when broken hearts bleed pain in darkness without the relief of compassion, the voice of an exceptional poet producing exceptional work is not something the world can afford to dismiss. The poems like “ A Readers Response” and “ A disturbed sleep” very well defines the idea of the section.
The second section describes the stages and the thought process of the poet. It describes a dream and to the same context it answers a beautiful question- What do I dream of?
I dream of quiet times, and productive days, working in an environment I am comfortable and at peace. I dream of being healthy and eating right and sleeping right and knowing I am working toward the life that I want to have. I dream of being with loved ones and seeing them happy and calm and with smiles on their faces while we enjoy each others company. I dream of a time when I am able to think without interruption and create without distraction. I dream of a simple life that allows me the freedom to be a good man and a happy man in the best of times and the worst of times.
The next section deals with the making if the poem. I really loved this section especially for the poems like “Epic” and “questions”. All poets and story tellers alive today make a single brotherhood; they are engaged in a single work, picturing our human life. Whoever pictures life as he sees it, reassembles in his own way the details of existence which affect him deeply, and so creates a spiritual world of his own.
The next section nt only describes the living of the poem but also describes a beautiful message to the readers. Don’t fail through defects of temper and over-sensitiveness at moments of trial. One of the great helps to success is to be cheerful; to go to work with a full sense of life; to be determined to put hindrances out of the way; to prevail over them and to get the mastery. Above all things else, be cheerful; there is no beatitude for the despairing.
The poet ends his book by describing the word “Poet” . Thirsty for being, the poet ceaselessly reaches out to reality, seeking with the indefatigable harpoon of the poem a reality that is always better hidden, more real. The poem’s power is as an instrument of possession but at the same time, ineffably, it expresses the desire for possession, like a net that fishes by itself, a hook that is also the desire of the fish. To be a poet is to desire and, at the same time, to obtain, in the exact shape of the desire.

Do get a copy of the book if you love poetry from
TITLE - title is really apt and catchy of how the process of writing a poem is all about.
BLURB- is crisp giving information about the poems.
The book is divided into 5 sections- 1)Are you looking for that poet 2) A poet as a young man 3) making a poem 4) a poem comes alive 5) a poet.
The poems varies in length and meter. Mostly consisting of short poems that are gut kicking .The beauty of this book of poems is each book tells out another story in simple words that will gulp down so many emotions in you. Every poem is another chapter of a poets life on how they write and put down a poem the struggle, the ease, the absent, the forgotten poem. The poems say alot in less words that is the beauty. This book will not let you down it is must for every poetry lover. One will relate to alot of poems. All the poems are beautiful and easy to understand. The imagery formed by each poem is really blissful.
The author has stuck to the traditional stanza form while composing the poems. His poetry pieces have a glimpse of his daily life and fragments of his innermost self. Towards the end of the book, he reveals what goes on behind the making of a verse, tracing his exact thoughts while writing them.The lengthier poems are descriptive in nature where as the shorter ones have great emotional depth.
One particular poem that stood out of the lot and perfectly resonated with my thoughts was 'Are you looking for that poet?'. Not all poets romanticise feelings and are loyal to a muse. Some have even lost their voice due to the chaos looming in their lives.
Coming to the flaws about the book, there were many poems that ended abruptly. Sexism was prevalent in the poems.
Other than these poems, there are significant amount of them that will engage the reader. Readers who have a penchant for poetry can try out this book.
