This second book of poetry in Persaud's trilogy of poetry books establishes him, through "Yogic Realism", as one of today's accomplished poetic voices. While in the first book of his trilogy, A Surf of Sparrows' Songs, the poetry alternates between Toronto and Miami and Georgetown and a philosophical India. In this book it is fixed in Miami and radiating outwards to Toronto, Georgetown and Ayodhya -- fired by the sugar-coated and brutal subjugation and repeopling of Florida. There is the irony running through the book of the Spaniards looking for gold in Florida -- and not realizing they had found it in the sunshine and warmth.
