The poems were written many years ago during my stay in Gigilt-Baltistan. I got the first edition published from Aquillrelle, Belgium and the book is now available on international platforms. Close to my heart as one of my most indulgent experience of life while living in pristine culture with unbound beauty of nature and human. Spiritually elating and intensely meditative the sights and visions are overwhelming. Hardly any words of poetry or art can reach to appreciate it let alone imitate. The whole region strikes you with religious awe as the landscapes ascend and descend beneath the vault of infinite skies. Every now and then I was face to face with divine manifestation.
The poems are a humble attempt to give expression to what I thought and perceived. The diction is simple and easily understandable. Like my other works it is dated with name of the place. An added feature are explanations at the end of poems with no citations. This is poetry after all and needs little references. While posting my poems in media groups and my personal page I would add certain relevant art that have been mentioned with the name of the website. Since this was the scheme of original writing so I have maintained it. Any deviation can be termed as sprezzatura. The second edition has gone through editing and it revealed that the first version has mistakes which I beg your forgiveness for. ~Sadiqullah Khan
