In his volume of poetry Mirrored Reflections, Dt. António Gomes invites the reader to an imaginative journey in finely crafted verse that traverses numerous stages of life, contrasting moods, diverse continents, and singular moments in personal history. The collection captures a fleeting but arresting glimpse of a man born in Goa, India, who migrated to the USA, entered the high realms of specialization in medicine, and refused to anaesthetise his own heart to the memories of his childhood and youth, the compelling faces of love, the power of a bull-fight in Spain, the mystery of Machu Picchu, the image of a dying war-child, the sights in the ICU, the blessings of friendship, the many-splendoured dances of life and death. The distinctive art of Vamona Navelcar, distinguished artist and fellow Goan, adds a unique touch of magic to the evocative words of the medicine man.
