"Verses that explore destiny, fables, time, freedom, and captivity are offered in this collection of more than 100 poems. Combined are a classical structure and a modern style, with personal observations that awaken the senses. Strongly influenced by yoga, the poems express precise observations on the natural world and human nature with great clarity and economy of words. They are imbued with love and a feeling of triumphant optimism over the adversities of life."

About the author (2002)

The well-known Yoga teacher and author Mira Mehta was first asked to write a poem as a child at school. Whenever possible after that she wrote poems rather than essays for homework. While deeply interested in language and linguistics, she also explored other subjects and became internationally known in the field of Yoga through her books Yoga: The Iyengar Way and Health through Yoga
