Meeting My Soulmate: (A Collection of Poems)
The fountains mingle with the river
Love has been a favourite theme of poetry since ages. It is the quintessence of human life and the exuberant force that satiates the creative urge of the poet who feels the height of romantic feeling with full of emotional intensity. This sort of poetry- romantic poetry- is ever afloat on the high waves of imagination, sometimes touching upon the reality, flowing through the banks of joys and sorrows, passions and pangs, ecstasy and agony, longing and belonging. It bubbles out from the bottom of heart with full profundity and intensity.

She is thankful to God for meeting her 'life partner' who has come into her world as " a God gift', 'a treasure' to be preserved for ever. She is very appreciative of her new-found love’
It is very much interesting to note that her poetry is a ‘love story’ dealing with the longing and aspirations of a feminine heart to facilitate all the joys and pleasures of life.

She represents all the women searching for their life partner. She suggests-
Romance is the essence of life. It is the lovely stuff for two in love to feed on. It fosters surging desires to culminate into wonderful experience of love.

A staunch believer in ideals of marriage she advocates through her poem A Strange Love Story for

Love, in all its shades, need to be nestled and nurtured so that it is borne with fruits of joy and peace, that it provides some soothing shade to the love birds. This is what she has referred to in her poem A Tree Of Love & Care. She suggests
In addition to the poems discussed above, other poems also deserve our heartfelt appreciation because of the exuberance of romanticism. The poems are simply her heart’s outpourings for her love. Love apart, her dreams, idealism, marital perspective, new challenges to be dealt with, her feels and thrills, questions, curiosity etc also find a better treatment in abundance. Her poems are romantic and sanguine green with blushes, soulfully enthralling, and melody of imagination to be into the reality.
Most beautiful feature of her poetry is the simplicity and felicity of her expression marked with common diction and emotive imagery drawn from the world of nature. Barring exaggeration, she has adroitly made use of apt similes and metaphors to bring home her point.
