Patricia Maria de Souza

Saga Seeds is Patricia Maria de Souza's third book of poems. Her poetry has been featured in Sound of Mind. She had previously published under the name Patricia M Tan for younger readers, Spot and I and Poems To Grow Up With. Teaching has been her first love, having taught at Raffles Girls' Primary School for 13 years, before moving on to curriculum work and retiring as a literature teacher. She has also written stories and travel articles. Just as her story-writing progressed from children's stories to tales for adults, so too did her poems.

Saga Seeds is Patricia Maria Tan's latest poetry collection. The title of her book refers most aptly to her poems, taut red beads of memory and observation. Nostalgic references such as masak masak transport readers to a time when children played five stones and games involving pure imagination. The personal recollections serve as a tribute to Singapore and our collective memories.
