There is a proverb that says, “Still waters run deep.” Author-poet Rivuli, however, disagrees. He believes that it is shallow, not still, waters which run deep. Readers can find out why as they immerse in The Works – Shallow Waters, a stimulating 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 cleverly manipulates verse to paint vivid images that compel the mind to think and read between the lines. He employs a lyrical style in his poetic narratives which draws the reader in from beginning to end. Aside from his razor-sharp wit, Rivuli also reveals a softer side of himself when he 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.
Mesmerizing from the first page until the very last, The Works – Shallow Waters will make an excellent addition to anyone’s personal library. No two works are alike as Rivuli masterfully crafts each poem to be a literary masterpiece that can stand on its own for the reader to savor.
