This book depicts the love of nature and people by this author who worked for the United Nations and its peacekeeping operations in three troubled countries of the world. The nineteen poems in this collection are of varied subjects. During her leisure time while she was temporarily assigned to those troubled countries, she devoted herself to writing articles and poems just as a brain twister. In this book, the author talks of the various inspirations that led her to write the poems. After retirement from the United Nations, this author started to gather and compile all her poems some of which are filled with emotions as a mother and as a friend; some are tributes to famous people and international personalities; some are delightful and pleasant; and some are of ordinary living and love of nature. Each poem tells a story and the book is very informative to read - one that you will not put down until you reach the conclusion..a must read book!
