HEAVIEST CALM by [Sherine Anniruth]

Heaviest Calm by Sherine Anniruth is a collection of poems dedicated to and written in the memory of the author’s son, whom she lost at a very young age. Throughout the book, the author touches upon various bittersweet memories, the pure joy and bliss that her child brought into her life, and then life taking him away at a very tender age. The poems convey simple emotions in a relatively effortless tone, baring the feeling of grief that any parent would feel at the loss of a child.

The best part about this book is that it makes you feel like you have a companion in your grief. This compilation of poems is a perfect balm to this feeling of loneliness. It talks about the first-hand experience of losing a child, walking us through the ups and downs of the journey to finally getting over the immense and insurmountable grief.

With lines like “Some days the memories drown me…. Some days the memories bring a smile to my face”, the author deals with grief, not as a single-dimensional emotion with just gloom, sadness, and inability to carry on, but also talks about the momentary happiness that gives a person the ability to carry on.

The poems are contemplative and meandering, simply exploring what the author is feeling, and how those feeling keep recurring. The poems are pure, raw expressions, that acknowledge the existence of some life changing and potent emotions.

Heaviest Calm is a collection of poetry that provide a beautiful and heart-wrenching depiction of grief. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper connection with human emotions, grief in specific. This book is perfect for people who don’t really read a lot however want some catharsis to their grief.
