PoemsBook - 2002
Rajinderpal S. Pal's first, acclaimed collection, pappaji wrote poetry in a language i cannot read , was an exploration, a search not only for a place in the world, but for a sense of one's self.
Pulse is a collection of love poems, about the sharing of stories and the sharing of that discovered self. Pal writes about those moments in our lives that we cling to, then draw from as "we strive for fabric and texture" in our lives. With echoes of Ondaatje and Wah, Pal's magical, ringing voice sings intimate. These are sensual poems, explorations of "the pulse in fingertips," and Pulse , the book, is a mature, sophisticated collection of poetry from one of Canada's truest writers.
