"These poems are a unique incantation of the psychic being, always tangibly in front."
-Rod Hemsell, poet
Dream Threshold is the second volume in a poetic trilogy on love, following Coming Home, which describes poet Ajit Sripad Rao Nalkur's spiritual journey back to India from the West. His time abroad included living, working, and travelling through Australia, Europe, and the United States.
This collection characterizes the poet's gaze into the future of his search for the beloved. The poetry in this volume covers such topics as the pureness of rain in paradise and an examination of what love is really all about. In Dream Threshold, Nalkur continues to explore the theme of relationships and the need to be true to oneself.
Give me a place where beauty's face
Gazes ever on my soul,
A sacred haven for the grace
Of love's sweet and endless flow,
Words and silence filling hearts
That sing of things tomorrow knows
Is home to where the deeper arts
Of living thrive, the golden glow
Of spirit shines in all its trees,
Its very soil breathes strength and shows
A way to live in harmony
With all around, life's constant blows ...
