Reviewed by Luwi Nyakansaila for Readers' Favorite

Time is a collection of poems by Vikas Parihar that delve into various aspects of the concept of time. Despite being an unseen force, time holds immense power, magnitude, and significance in our universe and lives. The poems describe it as a sculptor that molds things, the heartbeat of the universe, and the creator of seasons. It has a mysterious nature, dictating death and decay, destiny and fate, joy and growth. Even though battles have raged between empires, and kings have come and gone, time still reigns supreme. It is a paradox that scientists cannot explain, despite coming up with terms such as relativity, quantum flow, and various equations. Its dimensions are beyond infinity; it is more than just the past, present, and future.

Time is a beautiful collection that captivates readers and offers a unique perspective on time. Vikas Parihar skillfully uses words to create vivid imagery that evokes deep emotions and contemplation. The poems are sure to leave a lasting impact on anyone who delves into this book. What sets this collection apart is the interconnectedness and progression of the poems. Each poem builds on and adds a new layer to the previous one, creating a smooth flow that makes the book engaging to read. The continuity and development are what make this book unforgettable. It is always inspiring when a series of works come together seamlessly to create a cohesive narrative. The division of poems into titled stanzas and cantos is also a unique touch that I have never come across. This is truly a memorable read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Great work!
