Azure Daydreams – Book Review

ByAkhila Saroha

Feb 17, 2021

“Azure Daydreams” by Gayathri Krishnan is a collection of poems with thoughts that explore different dimensions of life and society. This makes the work multi-faceted and makes it a work chosen by not any particular set of readers.

The collection comprising 30 poems, for once, create an atmosphere of a dreamy and imaginative landscape, yet poems like “When Will We Walk Fearless?”, “Grow Your Own Skin,” “Comrades,” “You Should Not Miss You,” “Smiling Scars” show the poet’s connection with the present world too. Some poems like “Pluviophile,” “Waves Unrequited,” “The Woods do Cry,” “How Does Rin Sound to You” do carry a Wordsworthian air where she seems to connect with nature closely, but at the same time, poems like these show her worldly awareness.

“Azure Daydreams” as a title only reveals the surface-level details without letting the readers guess the surprises of different themes which Krishnan shares in her work. Poetry lovers would find poems of this collection catching their interest effortlessly. In addition to the poetic forms the poet uses, the diction is also carefully chosen and placed. Krishnan may or may not have read the classics but displays the potential of writing more such content in the future and helping to open the readers’ minds to different dimensions.
