Book Review: Rain Coffee Cities by Roger Samuel Motupalli

Rain Coffee Cities by Roger Samuel Motupalli brings many pleasing confessions from the poet. This contemporary poetry book provides some spiritual food that is inspired from everyday life. In this poetry book, it goes into nature with all its artful variations. The author picks up themes like picks up themes ranging from food, places to seasons.

From Biryani, Beer, Burger, Cupcake, Curry, Cricket to Udaipur, the author knows how to extract surprising facets from the familiar with form-conscious verses. The poetic sight zooms in and fades associatively until the view widens and you know, for a moment to get to the essence of things. It is always a miracle how this poet manages to create images that conjure up moods in a half-verse.

Anyone who is interested in language, playing with sounds and meanings, will be delighted with this virtuoso poetry book. The book is a lyrical celebration of everyday objects and the magic inscribed in it. There is linguistic versatility and sophistication. The author pins the tone elegantly and succeeded in linguistically connecting in the true sense of the word. There is some beautiful poetry, sometimes almost too beautiful.

What sets the poetry apart is the authors’ devotion to the world and its inhabitants, and at the same time, his motifs are removed from the present. This poet is not concerned with criticism of circumstances, but with hidden beauty of the world. One cannot help but admire the poet's mastery.

Roger Samuel Motupalli is not only gifted, but he casually gives the reader a wise insight. This is simply great poetry, breathtakingly savvy and at the same time light, as only very few are able to do. It is soothing to read the poems, which go with all sophistication without effort in the ear. I cannot deny that this particular form is also a kind of art. As humble as the topics are.

The author formulates the poems with a finesse, which gives even simple subjects a great meaning. A great book that picks up on the wonderful objects of everyday life. It is absolutely recommendable for anyone who does not take himself too seriously! If you love the play with words, sound, and depth of thought, you will like these poems.
