yes, I strongly believe that poetry is not everyone’s cup of tea. Some, really have the art of creating that perfect drama through words whereas a few make it a medium to covey their innermost thoughts.
Every poet has his or her style and give different definitions to their poetry.
This petite, bony, bong friend of mine, Tarun Mazumdar, a trilinist and poet, recently published his poetry collection in Word River Crossing, a book which has variety of poems by various poets in Delhi. A lovely collection of poems for the poetry lovers and good-to-have in your collection of books.
I had one too, a must in my collection, with a lovely message autographed by my dear friend.
Are you guys wondering, what I was too, before I knew what a trilinist is? Trust me you might not find the meaning on google 🙂
A trilinist is one who composes trilines or three line poems like Haiku, Senryu, experimental, abstract etc.
I found them interesting because of its simplicity. The idea of saying more than what is possible in just three lines turns it from ordinary to extraordinary.
Tarun has always believed in creating a style of his own, which captures the diabolical side of human mind. Devilish, evil, wicked, unpleasant, demonic are some of the most common traits in his poetry as he explores darkness and conveys in three lines creating that dramatic effect.
The themes of his poems revolve around exploring the sinful side of human psychology. The pleasures of romance, the desire of love, the unending lust, the hatred in the heart, the envy within and the depth of our fears… all find their way in Tarun’s trilines.

As you can see I am already glued on reading his trilines.
