I had high expectations for this book but it was somehow not as good as I'd expected. I strongly felt that there wasn't the need to rhyme in every poem, as the poet wasn't really constructing metres. Overall, it ranked good as a debut collection. Looking forward to read more from the poetess.

Your poems really get to my heart. With every word written and placed in a coordinated spot, your style is unique and addicting to read. I love this book, as along many other stories. Every poem is a master piece that give us emotions we didn't believe we've felt. I really do feel the emotion you put in each stanza.

As I always say, it's more important to use the correct word than a sophisticated one and that's what you did with your poems. Poetry doesn't mean that we have to use all kinds of sophisticated words to make it look proffessional. Brilliantly posed, the verses flowed with ease and most importantly, each poem told a story. That's what a poet should do with his/her words. Good job, my friend Attefah. May all your wishes be fulfilled and I hope you reach the peak one day where everybody will recognize you as a poet of this generation. My prayers are with you. Those verses are truly fervent! You did justice to the title of your book!!

Many poets can distill their thoughts, observations, and feelings into poetry in a way that I could never accomplish, but I don't necessarily view them as wise human beings. They might have all sorts of other strengths, but deep interior wisdom is not what they give me. There are some poets, however, who take me to places that resonate so deeply and do it in language that I would never discover in myself. What they say is suffused with wisdom. Ateefah is such a poetess for me.
Her poems are so dense with imagery, feeling, and insight they require an on-going relationship and an evolving understanding. So for me this is not a book to read and set aside, but one to savor and turn to repeatedly over the years. Ateefah sana ur rab created poems that span a space between the beauty and wonder of life and the recognition of love as an inevitable conclusion. Awareness of that conclusion makes everything more wondrous right now and she is incredible at conveying observed details as well as evoking imagery that make you contemplate the world immediately around you. But the poems remind you that these things -- and ourselves -- are all more precious because they are fleeting. Her writings are vaporous. It's like they trigger awareness of that sense of transience in life, temporarily sustain the moment for you, and then disappear. But isn't that how insight is? There then gone? Then there again?
