Book Review: Smash My Glass - Geeta Chhabra

Smash My Glass by Geeta Chhabra rests comfortably in the palms of a hand with polished verses in the era of modernity that contain words like pearls that remain scattered, and blend well to become the countryside, valleys, mountains, planets, universes with a collection of poetry, prose, and photographs.

We have to have the patience to follow the reasoning that stops time, enlarges the space, visions, and thoughts because, as the true poets, perceives in things beyond what their worldly sense, reducing human facts to their essential moment. This a precious little book with the author has a special feeling for artistic phenomenology in all its forms with the poems and the prose’s, envelops the reader like a thick and pasty breath, of unexpected familiarity.

The poet returns to its origins when the look was pure ability to see. The impact of the experience and ways of living in the present day is seen in relation to the voice of the poet in the same time who tried often dramatically to give a sense to the riddle of existence.

The words of the poet are sparks of timeless wisdom with the finitude of the individual and the anxiety of the infinite, the singularity of the living and the chimera of the case, the order of the day and the night, the presence and absence, the look and the visible, the thinking on edge of the abyss and all themes dear to the poet are reflected in poignant reading of the poems.

Thus emerges that the unconscious poet, transfigured in the matter itself that sought to overcome. And more generally a collective unconscious level diverting the mind from what is expressed in the composition, the case shows that things exist as such, in an irreducible materiality to the spirit.

The words becomes poetry with story of life, elegy of nature through a path that winds through the valleys of the soul to reach up to the reader that it breathes every fragment as the words are combined with images and pour into the hearts of those who understand the immense sensitivity, that attitude given to artists who look and feel as well.

A true masterpiece that, borders on absolute creativity from poetry, prose and photographs that go straight to the heart dedicated to pain and contradictions of life, the pages introduce us to understand that this mixture, in fact, of prose, poetry and images attracts and makes one think as each piece has its meaning but the sense.

The beautiful pages of pictures, prose, and poetry make this book a masterpiece, with beautiful photos associated with melodies enchant the reader who will notice the beautiful poetry and strong feelings that come from deep inside the author and succeeds to give a rhythm to the words that become new because of that proceeding music.

The words of the poet are attentive not only to the movements of her soul, but also the vision of the world that portrays with words and images. To understand the poems they are to be read, interpreted, and processed with a musical rhythm paced with sophistry, with a record of a solid verbal complaint of the evils of a society with so many crumbs that constitute the whole world and the poems feel and communicate the desire of cleaning all areas of social life.

An original reading, with a book full of emotions, the author knows how to be ironic and dramatic, true and real, light and heavy with poems as small fragments of glasses which communicate with an illusion and despair of life with verses mixed with fantasy, pain, hope, memories, and photographs that raise the primordial material in a divine vortex.

The feeling vibrates, but not submerges rationality as in the choice of words and sometimes biting metaphors that touch the souls and make careful and attentive souls distracted with its elegant lines that sometimes shake the soul.
