Book: Bleeding Light – by Sheniz Janmohamed

Book: Bleeding Light - by Sheniz JanmohamedBleeding Light is a collection of poems in ghazal form that traces the steps of a woman’s journey through night. She knows that in order to witness dawn, she has to travel through dusk first. Throughout her journey, she is caught between West and East, religion and heresy, love and anti-love, darkness and the knowledge of light. Each couplet is an independent thought and reflection, a pearl strung into a necklace. Bleeding Light is fraught with opposing, stark and often violent imagery heavily influenced by Sufi philosophy.

“Sheniz Janmohamed is one of a very few new poets who has mastered the form of the ghazal in a way that brings together the emotional aspects of the form and the expectations of the listeners who know the form and its cultural unity: mystic illumination, rhyme, refrains that exude passion, and couplets with wise insights. The couplets in her eloquent and appealing ghazals dazzle one with their precision, sudden turns and brilliant use of the cultural memory of language and imagery.”
—The late Dr. Kuldip Gill (Professor, Poet and Mentor)

  1. Sheniz, in my opinion, is the best Ismaili Muslim poet in the world today. Too often have I found that I can’t help myself from re-reading, much of the material that she’s written, over and over again. I hold her work of Sufi poetry in really high esteem and have no doubts that her works will be considered mesmerizing by lovers of spiritually charged poems.


  2. Some people do poses good taste of life. I know the person who wrote this book -knows the true meaning of life that why I’m great fan of her:)
