Kalings is a collection of poems on death, love, and rebirth. Its name plays on the common usage of the word calling, which Merriam-Webster defines as "a strong inner impulse toward a particular course of action especially when accompanied by conviction of divine influence" and Kali, the Hindu goddess of death, destruction, and more positively, eternal energy. These poems comprise a deep spiritual journey through issues of love, loss, and longing that make each of us human. It is my hope that they will inspire you, transform you, and leave you contemplating your own callings, eager to take steps toward your dreams.
