Tamed Words is a collection of 36 poems penned by Sanam Sharma. The poet harnesses his words in these poems as they render a vivid imagery to an internal world simmering inside him, and an outer world that happens around him, each day. Simple words, artistically placed, and deftly chiselled, to tell eloquent tales of life, as we all know it, and experience it. The poems are drenched in emotions and portray the aspirations, journeys, ordeals, flaws, and triumphs, that shape our lives.
Born and brought up in Amritsar (India), Sanam migrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1999. It is this dichotomy of being a migrant, where the writer emerges in Sanam, as he grapples with a sense of his identity across two cultures. Growing up, writing and poetry, started as a fanciful hobby for Sanam. He would often sneak into his dad’s library and stealthily feast on the works of many famous poets and writers. Tamed Words is Sanam’s first book where he takes the leap from being a writer who kept losing poetry written on stray pieces of paper, to a published poet. Sanam’s passion for writing is deeply inspired by his father, who is a published writer himself. Sanam spends his days working in a successful Corporate career, while, the nights are often spent being a writer. Sanam lives in Melbourne with his wife (and his biggest supporter) Jasdeep, and their 7 year old son, Arjun. Sanam invites feedback about his writings and is contactable on firstname.lastname@example.org or on twitter @thesmalltownboy or his website: www.thesmalltownboy.com
