This lovely book of poetry seeks to place the reader in a serene state of mind, then prompt reflection on the enormous capabilities we have as human beings. Author Zia Oboodiyat refers to these capabilities as the “Treasures Within”. Each poem presents one of these treasures and is accompanied by complementary art created by graphic designer James Lemon. The combination of poetry and art stimulates the reader to explore his or her own interpretation of the feelings induced by each “treasure”.
Zia has a dream. He is working to start a foundation for disabled children; perhaps a sanctuary. He has dedicated all profits from this book to aid in the establishment of this foundation. Others may join Zia in realizing this dream through purchase of this book or by direct contributions.
