Songs and Sonnets of Reminiscence
Featuring the journey of life, from virtue to guilt, from idealism to the thick air of here and now, "Songs and Sonnets of Reminiscence" are pale faces that looked over the author's shoulders, are yesterdays walking in the feet of today. Wisam Khalid opens his wounded chest to the winds of fate to see that he fought well and deserves a seat in the Elysium.
The poems are a lover's complaint towards capricious love and inconsistent fate. The scholastic manner in the composition of the poems is very obliging. The author's years of study had taught him a great deal. The breath of Elizabethan times haunts the sonnets as its dust catches still every cloth he wears and every idea he bears.
Wisam Khalid is at present pushed further from writing poetry by his unfailing interest in studying Literature itself. On the critical scale, he takes the side of the Romantic School of Criticism. Overall, poetry to him "is a beautiful woman, if you do not get confused at first sight, you might not be interested to dig deeper."
