I emerge into sunrise kisses, a smile riding a silver arrow from the Golden heart of My beloved to mine. A map of flames is a collection of lyrical poems that come from the heart. Pammy Sacher Kohli writes of the many moods of life, The register shifting fluidly from the joyously romantic to the mellow, and back, as she records the myriad colours of love and nature—a lover’s smile, a Himalayan dawn, the scent of wet Earth after the first rains. This collection is a sensitive and memorable tribute to the world we inhabit—to its promise, its intoxication and its enduring comforts even after loss.
Born in India, in the turbulent period between World War II and India’s freedom at midnight in 1947, Pammy Sacher Kohli lived in England and travelled extensively in Europe, before settling down in the United States. She studied at Loreto Convent, Ranchi, Sacred Heart College, Dalhousie and St. Xavier’s College, Ranchi. She later received a master’s degree in English Literature from Georgetown University, Washington D.C. Over the years, her children, grandchildren and she have visited India regularly. She has lately spent an extended period of time in the country of her birth.
