#Fairies, #Myths, & #Magic Author Spotlight Guest Posts – “Magical Healing Powers that We Possess,” by Author, Balroop Singh

I approach you with the magic of words…words that soothe, words that can heal, words that emit positive vibes, which are hard to miss!

Poets create their own land of fantasy with those words, which can transport you beyond the horizon. Yes! You can watch all the hues of love, life, and illusions. You can choose what fancies you and hang in there as long as you want to. The magic of words has spread its wings and is hanging out with my dear friend Colleen today. Please hop over to her blog to watch the fun…

Author and Poet, Balroop Singh

Magic figures prominently in my writing and is one of my favorite subjects. Imagine my happiness when the poet, Balroop Singh, agreed to write about something dear to my heart – the magical healing powers that each of us possesses.

I’ve been reading Balroop’s poetry from her blog for a few years now. Her words and descriptions always propel me to a new level of enjoyment. As a former teacher, Balroop says that her students are her real…

Review: Emerging From Shadows by Balroop Singh

Emerging from ShadowsSheryl has written a brilliant review of my latest poetry book at her blog. You can understand my exhilaration as two reviews within the first week of the release of ‘Emerging From Shadows’ is a matter of pride for me. There couldn’t be a better compliment for my book as Sheryl compares this venture of writing a review to writing a reaction paper during her university days…what a wonderful memory she has associated with it! Thank you!

I can hear the raindrops and feel the cool wind at the moment. Ah~ I like it when the refreshing wind gently blows me a kiss. This is a perfect time for me to pen my thoughts on this poetry book I’ve recently finished. Moments like this aids my thoughts to flow freely.

Doing this takes me back to my university days where my Literature professor would ask us to provide her our reaction paper of the books, plays, movies, and poems that were not of our choice with particular numbers of words and pages.

Robbie's inspiration

Today I am delighted to post my review of Balroop Singh’s new book of poetry called Emerging from Shadows. The author provided me with an electronic version of this book which I freely chose to review.

Emerging from Shadows

My review

“Beneath that beauty lie broken dreams

Beneath that smile recline unspoken words

That gentle caress hides frozen fallacy

Feigning to hold forlorn finesse.”

These delightful words are the opening stanza of the first poem, entitled When Darkness Deepens, that feature in Balroop Singh’s new book of poetry.

Each poem featured in the book comprises of beautifully constructed phrases which together tell a story. Some of the poems are sad and some are happy, all are filled with mystery and delight.

My interpretations of three of Balroop’s poems are as follows:
