CIVL is truly thankful to be able to have such a valuable contributor to cultural development and sustainability as one of our own volunteer programmers, and is excited about the release of this new piece of literature.
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 ]]>
