Grand and marvelous, a glimmering monument of being.
Although still young in the eyes of many in this world, Tayyaba Shakeel has already learned a few lessons, pondered certain events, and reflected on her emotions.
In her first compilation of poetry divided into five sections, Tayyaba explores a variety of ideas and emotions that include love and heartbreak, additional abstract musings, suffering and lessons learned, letters and wishes for divinity, and banter that includes both heartening and gloomy reflections. Throughout her volume, Tayyaba shares poetic insight that she welcomes as a significant part of her identity, not just now but also as she continues to move forward in life.
Comets & Comments is a collection of poems that reveals a young woman’s introspective thoughts and emotions as she reflects on the life she is meant to have.
