Wild Child of the Monsoons by Ann Zachariah, M.D. is a collection of poems that touches on various themes ranging from pain and love to grief. Like the rains in a monsoon, the emotions from these poems rain upon you and drench you in lyrical prose that will touch your very soul. Speaking of the resilience of human beings and their ability to overcome immense hardship and pain, Wild Child of the Monsoons invites the reader to delve into their mind and find inspiration.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Wild Child of the Monsoons by Ann Zachariah. The poems were all beautifully written and so emotionally provocative that I read the book in one sitting. I will say I have found myself going back to read a few poems especially Healing Hands and A Love Song, which really resonated with me and my personal experiences. Zachariah truly has such an amazing way with words and you can tell how much emotion and thought went into this poetry. The flow, the tone, and the beautiful illustrations that tie everything together make this such a wonderful poetry book to own. I feel as though poetry isn’t as revered as it once was but books like these make me glad that the art of writing poetry hasn’t died out. This book will definitely be going onto my list of favorites and I hope other lovers of poetry will pick this up and give it a read. I hope it will move others as much as it did me.
