About the Book

A mesmerizing journey into the depths of love, Letters to the Muse III offers the very real possibility of realizing true love on earth, while retaining love’s beautiful mystery. This collection is both personal and impersonal in its approach to the poetic muse. The personal poems describe how she appears to Nalkur in real life, while the impersonal poems delve into the deeper and higher aspects of her personality. Take, for instance, this excerpt from “A Spiritual Relationship:” Her footprints bore upon the sands Of her timeless walk Across to where the hermit sang And to her spirit talked, Welcoming her presence in His life no more adrift With the winds of chance, romance His spirit came to lift. She settled by his side, her grace Gentle and so kind Was the hand upon his face Of tears that silenced mind; His grief exploded in relief To know she never left Him alone upon the beach Where separation wept. The final volume of this trilogy, these poetic forays focus on Nalkur’s vision of the future of his relationship with the muse, the first having covered the past and the second the present. Through this third collection, the poet hopes to achieve a fusion of both human and divine elements of the male-female attraction as an expression of true love.
