Mirage reflects a truth we all hold. The pain of love in any form is the price we pay, and how true it is that we would pay even more. Our pain is our priceless humanity.It is a poetic version of the yearning for love to satisfy the never ending search for union with God. All the degradations of injustice existing in the human race shall no longer exist in heaven where there is only the love we seek, our search could be satisfied when we realize “the truth is, God never left us...”the vessel was given you and you sailed away”...and the yearning continues....

Shahnawaz Ahmed has a gift for listening to his heart beside the tempting darkness of his mind. The result is a poetry sublime and real, tempting and passionate, frail and strong. Complimented by the writer's stunning artworks, I am left knowing I will return to these pages again. This is truly a beautiful work. -- Karen Marie Hart (author of Indigo's Fall

Shahnawaz Ahmed's first book of poetry, MIRAGE, is beautiful. Each poem is a lyrical gift.

While reading the poems in MIRAGE, I kept envisioning words dancing across the blue and white expanse of a sky wearing white, puffy clouds. I think this happened because the poems are beautiful and uplifting, even when they speak of sorrow. I couldn't help but feel elevated while reading MIRAGE.

Shahnawaz also illustrated MIRAGE and each illustration adds another layer of beauty to the book. You could meditate on a poem or an illustration and then be inspired to create something unique and wondrous, yourself.

I highly recommend MIRAGE to all poetry lovers, and if you're not a lover of poetry, try MIRAGE and see if it can change your mind.
