Lightning Rhymes Review 5

The Moment (a poem):

So here I am once again to share with you my joy
The moment I watched this reel, I was like “Oh my”
The moment I listened to this dreamy & peaceful voice
The moment I eyed these wonderfully written lines
It was a heart touching moment & truly a great surprise
My eyes then started to simply glow & drip the very shine
The moment of bliss where my heart did purely smile
You see, blessings come in several different forms & kinds
The free flow of energy in this magical deep blue sky
My gratitude to Nadia for reviewing Lightning Rhymes

Reading through the pages I felt like I was being given a glimpse into the writer’s soul. Navin has a way of expressing his innermost feelings through his rhythmic poetry.

I have recited a small verse from the poem titled “Lightning Rhymes”.

Thank you Navin for sharing your talent with the world.

I’m deeply touched, delighted & honoured by reading this wonderful review by Karima from Digital Rabbit Hole on my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…My utmost gratitude to Karima for reading my book & writing this amazing review on Amazon…I’m sharing it with you all…it’s my way of sharing the joy…You can also find Karima on YouTube

Here’s the full review:

“Navin reveals himself to the reader, through at times, visceral, sensual, and enlightened verse. He’s a romantic, a self aware demon, a passionate poet, who lives his lines and takes you along with him. His rhyme scheme, rhythms and content, captivate the reader from the start.
I enjoyed the juxtaposition of his table of contents..The almost school-boy romantic in love with eyes, curves and depth..and then the man who struggles, against insomnia and his own nightmares that live inside…even in bright daylight.
The book is fascinating on all these levels and it’s honest, almost innocent at times and raw.

In Navin’s own words:
“My poetry is the flow in me & it’s
the soul I simply set free”

His flow is a raging river with quiet pools and always clear depths.
I recommend ” Lightning Rhymes” to anyone who gets excited about poetry. I promise you, this book will do that to you… and it will make you ponder.”

I’m truly grateful to each & every one of you…for your wonderful support…for your unconditional love towards my poetry..I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…

Lightning Rhymes Review 3

I’m delighted & honoured by reading this wonderful review by Tara from Raw Earth Ink on my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…My gratitude to Tara for reading my book & writing an in depth review on Amazon & goodreads…I don’t think I would ever be able to express how it feels…I’m sharing this review…my joy with you all…

Here’s the full review:

“I read this in paperback. This is an unsolicited review.

I’ve been following poet Navin Manik for some time now on multiple social media platforms and for good reason. I often find myself nodding my head, ‘yeah, this guy is speaking my own heart’. Typically I am not a fan of rhyming or structured poetry, but there are a few writers out there who, I feel, do so without it feeling forced or trite. Navin is one such poet. Often it’s not that he pens this huge and powerful revelation, but instead writes through dark and light inner thoughts that I think a lot of us have. Insecurity. Treachery. Longing. Inner torment. The body’s betrayal. Dusk and dawn. Falling down. Looking to the skies above.

It’s a bit tough to choose a favorite from the stack, so I’ll share from the very first poem, the first one he ever wrote, as I understand it. “Speechless I Became” introduces us to this delightful collection with: ‘Speechless I became When I saw the glimpse of me Felt a sudden shift Paused were the thoughts Everything came to a halt Tears began to fall Soul wanted to scream Inner pain was so real Wounds wanted to heal I began to breathe…’ The introspection and subsequent personal revelation is so heartfelt and soul-rending, one has a growing sense of urgency to continue on, page after page.

The book was a great length at just about 120 pages. I like its simple cover and the description makes it feel approachable. I didn’t care for the formatting, however it may due to the nationality of origin (I am aware that different countries have different formatting and ‘rules’ for publishing). I have never purchased a book from this particular country before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But, to describe, the font was a bit large and margins a bit tight, causing it to feel almost crowded on the page. White space in a book is nearly as important as the printed word. But again, this is merely opinion and I don’t count it against the author personally. I did appreciate that I found no misspellings or odd punctuation issues, so that really helps me love this even more. I give this collection 4.25/5 stars and consider it recommended reading for those who enjoy modern metered/rhyming poetry that speaks straight to your heart.”

My poetry style:

I don’t follow any particular style…In fact, I don’t even know how many different styles exist…it doesn’t matter to me…coz poetry is about expressing in whichever manner one wants to…I simply line my rhyme when I eye the shine…that shine is the raw shine of the very moment…whatever it may offer…I listen to my heart…

I’m truly grateful to each & every one of you…for your wonderful support…for your unconditional love towards my poetry..I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…

Lightning Rhymes Review 2

I’m delighted, honoured & deeply touched by reading this heartfelt review by Sinead McGuigan (Instagram handle: @sineadmcgpoetry) on my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…My gratitude to Sinead for reading my book & writing this amazing review on Amazon…No words can describe this feeling…

I shared last time how & when I started writing poems…before that, I had never written a single line…but I do remember clearly that I would simply “sing” to myself on my way home from the train station…that 10 minutes walk…yeah, I sound best if you put noise cancellation hearing protection on 😉…I was like…”nah, it’s not me”…what I’m actually saying is that I did sense something but that’s about it…but that changed in late 2017…a state of self-realization…I felt this crazy need to write those words down…I’m sharing my very first poem below…I was like “what’s happening to me…in me”…I started writing whenever I would sense words in me…I was admitted to the hospital on 7th Nov 2019…the day I was hit by brain hemorrhage…writing poetry was all I did besides the regular therapies & a bit of chit chatting…poetry helped me…it’s therapeutic in the sense that I could express what I was going through…I even shared my poem with the nurses & therapists 😊😂…I couldn’t have made it this far without them, the municipality, my friends, colleagues, blogger friends & my own will to live…and most importantly, without the beautiful support & love from my family…7th Nov 2021 was my conscious choice to publish my debut book…coz it’s the date of my rebirth…

I’m truly grateful to each & every one of you…for your wonderful support…this book was my dream & it would’ve remained that way if you were not there to show your love…I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my lines…if you wish to read my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…

To order my debut book, please click here. It’ll take you to the “linktr.ee” link. My gratitude ✨🙏 ❤️

Wishing You A Very Happy New Year…that’s filled with joy, peace & light…Thank you for your time to read this sharing of mine ✨💛💫

My Mind (reblogging an updated version)

Let me give you a ride
And take you inside to this site
To give you some insight
Into the arena of my simple mind

It’s been a while since I found sleep by my side
It’s just this one little thing with me
Too many thoughts are nesting inside
Questioning me day & night, the meaning of life

I feel like detonating my thoughts at times
To simply blow up my own mind
To make some space during the sleepless nights
To change those formless kinds into this form of rhymes

My mind often wears no armor under roaring skies
Unlike that strong dark knight in olden times
Covered in steel & gold in those bloodthirsty fights
That used to kill to conquer for ego & pride

My mind phrases these words & scatter them on this dark page
Just like the shining stars sprinkled all over the dark space
The constellation of burning stars you see far far away
Where the unknown finally meets its ace, the card of spades

My Raw Interior

You & I can’t be defined even if we try just like this Universe
The third eye that shines the divine is the energy purely magical
The signs we sight in this life are the intuitions supernatural
The scars that I wire in my I is to revive the deeper connections
The rhymes that I write in line are the lightning of my raw interior

Reblogging – Speechless I became

It all started here when I felt the very first time this need to express my state of Being in the form of this poem.

Speechless I became

When I saw the glimpse of me

Felt a sudden shift

Paused were the thoughts

Everything came to a halt

Tears began to fall

Soul wanted to scream

Inner pain was so real

Wounds wanted to heal

I began to breathe

Transparent in the moment

Vulnerability at its peak

The moment of inner peace

Where joy and sadness were one

Good and bad had no meaning

Darkness was the Light

Loved that very Sight

The moment of true presence

Where Heart was the only Sense

Truth was the One

When I saw me

—– Speechless I became —–

It all started here when I felt the very first time this need to express my state of Being in the form of this poem. It was here I really saw the real me. I was feeling very vulnerable in a beautiful way. Rollercoaster ride filled with inner peace, where I couldn’t differentiate good from bad, joy from sadness, light from dark. Everything was simply as it was supposed to be. I published this poem on 12/01/2017 on FB as I didn’t have a blog back then. Never thought that writing poems would become such an important part of my life; of me. This poem will always be the special one.
