One Heart - Many Breaks: A Collection of Poems and Art by Sandeep Kumar Mishra is a collection of poems and art with diverse themes that give glimpses of the poet's personal emotions, feelings, and journey. The words and art in the book reflect the poet's love for nature and the need to go back to it, the spiritual quest in today's modern times, and the good and bad moments that impacted his life. He captures the nuances, intricacies, and complexities of life with ardor and vigor that will leave readers excited and impressed with his perception of life.
'A Letter to My Beloved Wife' is raw and honest, and is all about the author's pain of being in an unhappy marriage which he terms as a business agreement. 'Seascape' is another poem I enjoyed; it spells out hope, joie-de-vivre, and pleasant feelings, and the rhyme gives it a lyrical pace and breezy movement. I found the following prose poem profound as it captures the author's pain and angst perfectly: “I painted an ocean/But forgot the shore/There were no ships/When I took a close look, /It was my isolation" - this strophe is originally from his poem 'I Painted an Ocean.'
One Heart - Many Breaks: A Collection of Poems and Art by Sandeep Kumar Mishra is kind of autobiographical because it is all about the poet, his life, his family, society, the world, and nature, and the artwork enhances his words effectively. The collection is a real treat for all poetry lovers as the poems are beautiful and will take them to another world where the rawness and profundity of the poet's words will touch their hearts.
