JOHN WILDE was born in 1950, and life was anything but typical. As a boy, his world was filled with constant change. His home served as a way-station for children waiting for adoption, and twenty-seven foster kids filtered in and out of his life as he grew up. With all their different struggles and hardships, those kids molded him into who he is today and helped him understand why love is the greatest healer. During his forty-four years of working in sales, he developed a passion for writing. Gray Heron is his first published work, and he has plans for more.
Unsettled by Ruby Mohan is a different, slightly offbeat, collection of poems. From soul-stirring poems to subtle natural flow of prose, the book offers a gamut of emotions through short 47 items of literature. The cover page is captivating, leaving a sense of wanderlust for readers. In its all essence, Unsettled meant unpredictable patterns of life and its unfathomed vagaries that take us for a roller-coaster ride from time and again. The collection is easy to read but difficult to discern. The poetess talked about love and imagined reunion of lovers in different states and moods. It is clear love is an evident theme in the book and it can be gauged that the poetess missed someone at one point of life. Ruby Mohan pours her heart out. Her poems are coherent but paint the picture as what churns inside a mind and heart. The collection is full of lovely and meaningful poems, it just a matter of time how readers can connect and relate with them. Easy to read, the book is so short that it can be read in one go.
