“Still waters run deep”—or so the proverb says. Poet Rivuli, however, believes it is shallow waters, which run deep. Readers can find out why as they immerse in The Works – Shallow Waters, a poetry anthology that will provoke thought and linger in their minds long after they have read it.
In this riveting collection of poems, Rivuli’s talent shines as he skillfully manipulates verse to paint images that compel the mind to think and read between the lines. His poetic narratives tell stories in a lyrical style that draws the reader in from beginning to end. While Rivuli displays razor sharp wit, he also indulges in sentimental moments and dreamy musings as he shares his profound thoughts on a gamut of ideas and issues—all of which are sure to make the reader ponder on life and love among other things.
The Works – Shallow Waters will make an excellent addition to anyone’s personal libraries. No two works are alike as Rivuli masterfully crafts each poem to be literary masterpieces that can stand on its own for the reader to savor.
The Works – Shallow Waters will be featured at this year’s Frankfurt International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany on October 6 to 10, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
