About :   Whispers from Her Deathbed

This book is a posthumous collection of poems in which we hear Janavi Held enter into an intimate dialogue with time, nature, pain, and her own mortality, as she withers away from a mysterious chronic illness. Baring her soul in these honest and brave poetic narratives, Janavi chronicles the musings of a youthful and exuberant spirit longing to dance, while confined within a painful body that inhibits dancing. This existential tension catalyzes the author’s immersion into artistic and spiritual growth. Through poignant verse and philosophical meditation, we are given bittersweet glimpses into how Janavi dove deeply into her core, and learned to embrace the experience of dying as a natural and integral part of life.
