In one of his poems, Paresh Tiwari says, ‘A poem could be a confessional. The blank sheet of paper a two-by-two box hewn from a dead tree. This poem, however, is an asylum. The words stacked up like bricks. Holding up a roof in the middle of a vast emptiness.’ In this magnificent collection, Now a Poem, Now a Forest, Paresh Tiwari shows us what a poem can be. His journey to get here has been long and adventurous. He has immersed himself in the spirit of free verse, and that of the prose poem. But it is the gentle soul of haibun that has his heart. — Hoshang Merchant
Tiwari’s poetry is filled with imaginative leaps, a rare precision of language, an unusual pairing of imagery, and wonderful juxtapositions. That’s what gives them spark and causes resonance in the reader’s ear. A reverberation in which he or she can continue the imagery, the story, even find personal meaning. — John Brandi
