Please welcome my esteemed Rave Reviews Book Club colleague as she opens her “Moments We love” blog tour with me at Fiora Books!
About the Book:
Moments of fragrant love that stand frozen in time, of dreams that dare not unfold, of passion that fleets by, of erratic joy that we meet at the crossroads of life, butterflies of time that add color to our dark moments to scare the demons away – I have gathered all of them in this book. Some of them whisper softly to create a magical aura while spring of life sings with them, trying to wipe silent tears. Mother Nature steps in with all her grandeur to breath quiet messages of tranquillity.
Each poem would soothe your emotions with élan and add a dash of color to your life. Life – that doesn’t halt for your sad moments; that just floats by. You just need to dive in to soak in myriads of moments to discover how it could ignite positive tones. All the poems in this collection are imaginary but inspired by people around me, some of whom chose to share their frustrations and tremors with me. Sometimes I could read between the lines to pen my thoughts down.
Memories and moments merge here
Today when I return to share
The glow of rainbows
Embers of emotional entreaties
And smouldering debris.

Excerpt from Moments We Love:
When Love Whispers
We walked those woods
A thousand times
The silence; the symphonies
The shadows; the light
Lingering in the aura of love
Velvety sky watches
Stars shine brighter
With our whispers
Our love deeper than woods
Paces through night
Swaying with the breeze
Stilling my heart, singing lullabies.

Where Should I Begin?
The angel of forgiveness visited
She woke me up
I was wonderstruck to see
Blue and purple light
In my room
She sat by my bedside,
We had a cozy conversation
Caressing my locks, she counseled
“Forgive them dear,
Forgive them all.
Don’t carry any affliction.”
Abrasively I looked up
The pain in my eyes dwindled
With the promise – “ I will try.”
A strange light spread around me
Immersed me completely
And my Angel smiled.
But I don’t know where to begin.
Should I begin with childhood robbers?
Or devils I encountered
While growing up
Who tried to snatch my freedom of speech
Or those hypocrites
Who took me for a ride?
Or those who feigned friendship?
The list may be long
But the purple light of forgiveness
Is all around me, encompassing all.

(Excerpt from Sublime Shadows of life)
Balroop Singh, a former teacher and an educationalist always had a passion for writing. She is a poet, a creative non-fiction writer, a relaxed blogger and a doting grandma. She writes about people, emotions and relationships. Her poetry highlights the fact that happiness is not a destination but a chasm to bury agony, anguish, grief, distress and move on! No sea of solitude is so deep that it can drown us. Sometimes aspirations are trampled upon, the boulders of exploitation and discrimination may block your path but those who tread on undeterred are always successful.
When turbulences hit, when shadows of life darken, when they come like unseen robbers, with muffled exterior, when they threaten to shatter your dreams, it is better to break free rather than get sucked by the vortex of emotions.
A self-published author, she is the poet of Sublime Shadows of Life, Emerging From Shadows and Timeless Echoes – her widely acclaimed poetry books. She has also written When Success Eludes, Emotional Truths Of Relationships, Allow Yourself to be a Better Person, her latest poetry book Moments We Love has just been released.
Balroop Singh has always lived through her heart. She is a great nature lover; she loves to watch birds flying home. The sunsets allure her with the varied hues that they lend to the sky. She can spend endless hours listening to the rustling leaves and the sound of waterfalls. The moonlight streaming through her garden, the flowers, the meadows, the butterflies cast a spell on her. She lives in San Ramon, California.
