Abstract

A crystallisation of over two decades of
thoughts through which the poet shares and
penetrates variegated experiences, Laughter
from the River, weaves the complications,
frustrations, pains and the epileptic joys of life
and living.
Arranged in thematic subtitles, the
subsection, ‘Platitudes’ celebrates the joy of
admiration and the opprobrium of castigation
from environmental insensitivity in the poem,
‘ Ode to a Piece of Paper’ to the sarcastic barb
on the nemesis awaiting dictators who rise to
power but end up in sewer-pipes – the dustbin
of history- in the poem, ‘Palace and Sewerpipe’.
In ‘Cries’, the poet laments the agonies,
pains, deprivations and sufferings of the
human person in the midst of plenty
sometimes with the connivance of the forces
of nature as expressed in the poem, ‘Laughter
from the River’. The subtitle, ‘Desires’ x-rays
the plethora of wishes and worries which
captivate humankind while in ‘Passages’, the
poet underpins the spirit of adventure,
restlessness and awesomeness of the human
person and nature as conveyed in the poem,
‘Kilimanjaro Ascending’. Passages lead to
‘Departures’ – passage to death – a mysterious
phenomenon which remains a consternation
which defies complete comprehension.
