A person kissed by the Moon
“…A Person Kissed by the Moon contains lines that resound long after you have set it aside for some mundane chore. The sound of voices echoes in your mind and even in translation, it carries the urgency of a Nepali appeal. There are words of a poet’s place in the universe, amidst the mystery and beauty of nature and overwhelmed by the bestial violence of war.
Pratik’s words have a hesitancy that reflects his humble manners and ways. But he is also brave as he confronts his demons head-on, using his words as a sabre as he opens up his own soul for all to see.”
