A debut collection of poems, Moving On presents poems dealing with angst, anguish and amazement, love (and loss) and the euphoria of being alive. These are poems that speak in many voices and in which words and expressions come cascading -- in startling sequences leading to dramatic endings. Replete with contemporary sophistication in expression and imagery many poems deal with the angst -- frailty, vulnerability and uncertainty -- of being human. A child-like wonder at, and gratitude for, the little beauties of nature resonates in many of these poems -- with wondrous imagery juxtaposed against a strong awareness of a past that cannot be reclaimed. Many poems also deal with cycling, motorcycling and other journeys through the wide open spaces of the great outdoors; in these, landscapes and lakes are often rendered animate and come alive as intimate associates. Overall, these poems convey empirical truths in words of elemental simplicity and are compellingly different, refusing to get tied down by conformist principles. As eminent poet Hoshang Merchant says in his foreword to the book, the poet “forces us to listen to silence without a manic need to fill in the long gaps between conversations, conversions, concourses. “
