After every poem a sort of hush descends but there is a persistence of both the sense and the music left behind by the words. The poems of "Balconies of Time" mix the private, the personal with the public, the social into an aesthetic whole. As the title suggests, these poems chart an evolution of time from one state of situ to another. They bring in moods where the experiences of the poet become poetry. Predominantly love poems but exploring aspects of it that lie hidden to ordinary sight and can only be seen by the eye of a poet. The metaphors he uses subtly give in to multiple interpretations and an apparently simple poem becomes loaded with meanings. These poems are also about creativity and how the self of the poet is both an anomaly as well as a representation of every age and time.
