About The Book: The Purple Moon' is a collection of a hundred poems which emote the different sentiments and phases of love. What really is love? It is a feeling most difficult to define; it is a sentiment, to be felt, smelled, drunk and tasted - for it is the most subtle emotion. , When one is in love for the first time, many raw feelings enwrap him or her. One may just be crazy, have a simple desire to meet the sweetheart or may just feel something very divine...On the other hand, there are chances of one getting annoyed, developing jealousy and hatred and may end up doing random acts. However, as love matures, the feelings also mature and it is then that the lovers realize that love is something more than just these raw feelings.

Flavours Of Love
Love is an exquisite dish
And it comes
In various flavors,
It is sweet
When it arrives
And the realization dawns
Of being in Love.
It has an aromatic essence
When it climbs charts
With the blissful presence
In every moment of togetherness.
It is sour
When there are clashes and conflicts
And when one of the partner is upset
And the other tries to please.
It is bitter
When the disputes
And there is a halt.
With a little adjustments and undertakings,
As dear as salt.
All the best Neelam mam. Keep writing. I would love to read more from this Author.
