Ankali believes in the power of taking a journey within to search for answers, that all we ever have is now and that life is a wonderful miracle.
In a debut collection of poems inspired by something Higher, she lyrically explores a variety of themes that include nature, love, dis-ease and life itself. Throughout her presentation, Ankali shares her own story and experiences and reminds us that however dark it may be, there is a light inside all of us that sets us free to rise above and become all we were meant to be.
All poems were influenced by something Greater which engaged into dialogs with her, gave her answers and made her feel healed, hold, unconditionally loved and supported. It allowed her to find her true self, to trust her intuition and build strong faith.
Drowning and Rising shares free verse that reflects on a young woman’s journey through life as she grows to accept herself, to go with the flow and embrace all the goodness of Mother Earth and the universe.
