Short Description: The waiting is becoming endless. Hopes are dashed in th private and public domains. Very wait casts a denim of despair on the faces of the builders of a new dawn “inhaling the animated air of the germinating season” now looking forlorn as the “object of fancy meanders and disappears away into fleeting fantasy”. The poems in this collection convoke images of despondency, failed leadership, lost labour and ennui in the face of love and abundance. Broken Pitchers is a metaphor about our ebbing common aspirations as a people and a nation. Who will enfire and remould these broken pitchers?
