PREFACE : SHAPES OF LOVE – An Anthology of Pictorial poetry by K C. Sethi & Sunita Sethi
“Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.”
The first ever anthology of many poets on love -a silence and love -a feel, has been published in a Coffee table pictorial book by Mr.K.C.Sethi and Sunita Sethi .The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor even touched , but just felt in the heart. This book- SHAPES OF LOVE is going to make your heart see and also feel the pulse of many poets intense emotions and deep feelings. Love in these poems is a force more formidable than any other with pictures to illustrate its power which will offer you joy beyond apprehension. The concept of love has a holistic tone and tenor that is meant to hurt none but to serve one another like a friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is a fruit of all seasons at all times and within reach of every hand although invisible to the eye like the wind. Love is the quintessence of human life and the exuberant force that satiates the creative urge of the poet who feels the height of romance with full intensity. The poetry of silent love felt from the purity of heart is imbued with simplicity marked with loyalty and innocence. Without love , this world is a futile place to live in. Selfless and silent love is the most abiding , indelible, interminable and everlasting feel that exists in this universe without any ego and complexity. Love as such is not possessive, dominating and destroying in its composition. The silent love of enduring nature is unselfish as portrayed in the poems. The lyrics reflect on love that is comprehensive in nature harbouring no ill will and everything associated with it attains a beauty of perfection in various colours and hues. Poetry has got the capacity to soothe our emotions and therefore these poems are food for our soul. SHAPES OF LOVE , is an immaculately woven tapestry of poetry and pictures exemplifying images beyond description of words. This book is a consummate book of pictorial poetry that is a handiwork of artistic masterpiece. I wish the poets great success in their creative journey.
