Melodies of the Mind is a book of poetry by Rabia Tanveer. In Tanveer’s dedication, she explains her purpose for publishing it, dedicating it to those of us who need inspiration and encouragement. Themes of love, loss, self-worth, happiness, and pain are described throughout its pages using imagery and metaphors. With rhyming couplets that lend a song-like lilt, she writes the poems in an AABB pattern and invites us to reflect on their meaning. From wrestling with the ego and overcoming difficulties to hard truths and unrealized dreams, you will relate to the poems on a personal level.
Rabia Tanveer embraces a full range of vocabulary, and the meter of the poems feels like a song, completely justifying the work's title. Many of the poems are healing and deliver a sense of mindfulness. Her ubiquitous writing flows through you with peace and harmony. I connected to Tanveer as I absorbed the beautiful language and heartfelt feelings. Tanveer’s depth as a poetess shines through as she skillfully words each stanza. The brevity should not relate to its worth, as the profound emotions each piece evokes relay this collection’s true value. Melodies of the Mind will be treasured by those ready to digest the sentiments expressed and relate to the themes within.
