Blooming in Fall and Kaberi Mukherjee

Poetry and Kaberi Mukherjee

Poetry is the satisfaction of the soul, we forget many of our daily matters while grasping poetry, and self-satisfaction becomes the primary artefact. A poet sees the world only from their feelings or concerns. They do not see themselves with any particular language, religion, culture or nationality. A poet sees the world alone; their philosophies on love, nature, environment, struggle, war, and civil life differ entirely from ordinary people.

A poet is, above all, the name of an ideal, one who is generous, temperate, tolerant and creates him/herself with an exceptional mentality. He avoids the glittering life of the world and cherishes a simple life. However, even though we have exceptions in many cases, ordinary people identify a real poet differently.

A poet’s constant flow of conscious thoughts and responses to circumstances which comes to his/her writing style, is frequently used in this poetry to depict the process of the mind or organic speaking.

Poetry is a different form of language that is employed intellectually. At some hypothetical early period, it may have been the only form of speech or language, or it may have just been language tout court, with prose acting as its younger and derivative rival. Particularly poetry is thought to have originated as mystical spells performed to ensure a bountiful harvest.


Blooming in Fall and poet Kaberi Mukherjee

Poet Kaberi Mukherjee has captured a wide range of her philosophy or thought through poetry. Each of her poems has been placed in the field of poetry with its unique aesthetic position. This is her first solo poetry collection, though her writing has been published globally in many other poetry editions.

Kaberi lives in London, UK, with her daughter. She was born in a small town in India but has travelled far and wide in the country, accumulating myriad experiences. After completing her Bachelor’s in English Literature, she completed her Master’s in Applied Psychology. She has worked in varied industries. She loves to deal with various aspects of human nature. She wrote her first poetry at the age of 15 and published it in her school magazine. Her poetries talk about her diverse life experiences. Her poems are published in many national and international anthologies and web magazines. She has won many accolades from various global web platforms. Apart from poetries, she has also written some short stories and wishes to be a novelist someday.

Kaberi believes in loyalty, generosity, compassion and unconditional love. She believes creativity is the key to happiness and loves her writing journey.

She is a member of the Shikor family and associate editor of the Global Poet and Poetry web portal. She is more inspired to publish her first book from her own publishing platform as she belongs to.

Kaberi, now working with various literature patterns, finds herself in a new dimension of the poetic world. She is eloquent in writing poetry on all worldly subjects.

Blooming in Fall is a collection of poetry by Kaberi Mukherjee as it is her first solo publication which was published on February 2023 from Shikor Publishers, Dhaka and London. A total of 56 poems, a beautiful cover designed by Soumyadeep Chakraborty.

Kaberi says in one of her poems;

“When the wasps, bees and butterflies
Sing the joyous song
And the wild beasts arise
From winter prolong
Let your flare bring the warmth
Let this earth be once again charmed.”

When we talk about Postmodern poetry, it has been studied for many years and is frequently praised for a few stylistic and conceptual elements. These poems can be challenging to read and comprehend, but this is frequently done to reflect the poetry to the reader. Postmodern poetry typically exhibits an existential point of view and often deals with themes of meaninglessness or a lack of reality.

As we discussed earlier, a poet means pure utterance and establishes him or herself in the art of poetic weaving, and Kaberi is not an exception, as is one of their realist poets. Poetic realism has influenced her; she cherishes poetry within her inner soul. She likes to live in a skaldic world, which inspires her aspects of passion. Notably, her literary realism introduced a new writing style for new writers.

Poets sometimes become very clever with their thoughts and are very positive with their works and way of life. It is a fact that Kaberi refers to her poetry collection with a brave dignity to understand her affiliation of poetic work between intense life. At a glance, it happens to the reader that a poem may have discussed the poet’s reality. It may have been written in the concept of their own experience. Yes, sometimes we cannot avoid it as it comes from its poet’s imaginary or struggling or loving life. Kaberi escaped cleverly, and she is successful with her writing showing readers a sign of attention. Let’s read the poem she has

My Poetry Book

Turn those pages to know me.
A lady who lived a life laudably
Those verses narrate my tale
Whom I befriended in my moments of frail
For they cried with me when it rained
And slept by me in sleepless nights of pain.
And when the moon sparkled amidst the star shower
They alleviated my hurts with their laughter
They coloured my canvas on autumnal days
Metamorphosing to mayflowers on summer days
And in those swings of musing.
They made me sway in mundane mornings
My smiles, my sobs, my nostalgic reminisces
Captured in those verses as remembrances.
To get acquainted with my heart, my soul
Read my poems to know my earthly role.

This collection is mostly written on the concept of love and nature; she avoided arguments of political satire, she may have bonded within the love of nature or affectionate love, and she moved with her desire. We can read out few lines of her poem;

“Our union under the caliginous night sky
That drenched even those barren lands.
And my body melted in your warm embrace
My parched soul regained its lost vigour”

The poetry of Kaberi is an odd jumble of inconsistencies. Love is both a physical, corporeal feeling and a spiritual high; it is both spiritual and metaphysical while also profoundly ingrained.

Call For Autumn

“Oh Rain!

Spare me from another melancholic day.
For you bring in nostalgia of childhood days.
Your petrichor doesn’t charm me anymore
For it’s been long replaced by musty odour. “
Or let’s read a few lines of her poem,

Greatest Player

“Neither the sun shone that day
Nor the moon emerged that night,
And the stars, too, didn’t sparkle,
For my sky was carmine;
O’er again, some dreams were slain
And the bloodstained pieces lay scattered.
They call it feat of fortune,
I call them felonies.”


It’s You!

“My lips taste you
Blend of your alluring perfume
And the last puff of cigarette
I can smell on my T-shirt
Pulling me back to moments
Of our togetherness.”

In Kaberi’s poetry, the poet argues that the ideal man shouldn’t be out of reach; her lines look for affectionate relationships.

Or we can see the verse;

Thy Warmth, O’Love

“O’Love! Tell the moon to shine tonight
With your warmth
Tell the stars to wrap me in its silvery sparkle
As your warm embrace,
For I miss your tender touch.
Oh! Ask it to proffer a piece of your ardour
Just for once; “

A poet’s prophecies have a unique affiliation with the mind and thoughts, a firm collaboration of the poetic soul. It makes a poet drown in the deep of imagination and achieve an extraordinary metaphor.

We can discover a poet within her touch of fabricated warmth words, Kaberi writes in her poem;

Oblivion Of Love

“Let me breathe in oblivion this day,
Let the mind be in dreamy languor
Let me slip off to the distant world
Where the heart shall solely throb.
With each thought of yours,
With each gust of wind
That brings your essence.”

A poem always attracts readers with its abstract and metaphysical combination. The reader should take a minute to analyse the distinctions demonstrated before arguing that a simple comparison cannot possibly include all the different ranges of poetry and prose that, when being compared, differences are imposed.

Rhythm of Autumn

“The broken leaf
Sings the sad symphony
Ahead of reaching the ground
While the autumnal breeze
Entwines the tree in merriment
Greetings, the winter.”

A poet can be a relative of nature and can think of nature as such, which is easily avoided by ordinary people. But a poet thinks of it as does, trying to embrace nature as his/her own. Kaberi is no exception.

Because she has extraordinary foresight, in her poetry, we have repeatedly brought the love of nature in poetry in a completely different form. Many poems in this book are about nature, which accomplishes with utterance and positivity. Of course, she is a true nature lover poet.

The above lines show how the transition from one season to another clears the doubt of nature. A poet can embellish their overall thought in the words and rhythm of the poem.

There are many more poems we can refer to from this collection; however, we see more love or emotion in her poetry, which is normal in most cases in the mind of a poet, and therefore Kaberi is no exception. Love is the primary theme in poetry, be it nature, human love, love of God or physical and emotional feelings. Moreover, when a poet sees social or political unrest, they are inspired more by social love and struggle spirit.

Finally, the poet is perfect with the sovereign of poetry; without reading her poems, one cannot understand how strong she is in her poetry. She is optimistic about herself, and she has a strong belief in her work that she will be able to go far one day.

If I prioritise her poetry’s imagery of consonance, rhythm and word characteristics without looking at all her minor flaws, then we can see that she is worth it and successful, but we have to read her hard work.

Kaberi will reach her goal in the poetic world, which is our wish and hope for her.

Hail to the poet and poetry.
