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. We also find poems alive with the beauty of simple folk and nature, and poems awake to darker moods and events. Throughout the lyrical excursion, readers are borne by the poet's steady and reassuring voice, into the intricacies of introspection, and towards a fuller appreciation of the exquisiteness of everyday moments.

"What moves me most about this collection by Patricia Maria de Souza is its treasure of memories drawn from a life-time's reflection and observation.... It is something of a relief to come to writing as down to earth as this." —Anne Lee Tzu Pheng, Poet and Singapore Cultural Medallion Winner
