‘Ephemeral Night Skies’ is a powerful collection of poems divided into light and dark parts, showcasing the flight and the fall. The first part deals with poems on kindness, life, optimism, friendship, beauty, self-efficacy, love, and ends on a grey note. The second part starts with separation followed by themes of dark humour, solitude, realism, backstabbers, death, reincarnation, vengeance, lies, power, and finally ends with remorse. In one line, ‘it’s becoming what you hate the most.’
Hania Shaikh is a bachelor’s student by day and a writer by night. She decided to find a balance between her profession and her passion and ended up self-publishing her debut book through Auraq in her last semester – something she had been endeavouring to do for years, before pursuing her further education. Her poetry book ‘Ephemeral Night Skies’ contains blatant language for all readers for in her considerate opinion, the easier the words are, the raw is their impact.
Besides being a poetess, she is also a novel writer and is currently working on the first book of her fictional novel series based on power games in medieval era. She has a heartfelt intrigue in history and all forms of art. When she’s not writing or reading, she dedicates her time in making paintings and is the owner of The Canvas.
