Read the following review of “Colours of My Heart”:Surjeet Kalseys Book of Poems Colours of My Heart is an introspective perspective of the plight of all women. Kalseys selection and placement of words weaves a poetic pathway that awakens and heightens the readers senses. Her use of colour as a definition for emotion paints from a palette all women can identify with a world where men and women betray each other, ie: Jealousy: so they prey on other womens partners; with exotic lingerie and vodka, they hunt their prey, and suck on male vulnerabilities… Her writing is provocative, hopeful and empowering. – Valerie B.-Taylor President/Facilitator New West Writers Co-ordinator/Facilitator Renaissance Book Writers
