Two Postmen and Other Poems

by: Ni Made Purnama Sari

Ni Made’s poetry invites the reader into quite often quotidian descriptions and moments of life that simultaneously express very symbolic and allegorical messages. She writes very evocatively of nature, locality and place to portray self-exploratory, confessional and questioning narratives.
