Poetic Sense

Poetic sense becomes feeble when there is a contradiction between the desires of the soul to create from the experiences, and strong conscious persuasion from the demands of others. The temptation to create from the conscious and subliminal freedom is suppressed to surrender to the desires of curious eyes. The purity of poetic composition diminishes, and further dissolves into the ocean of chaotic escape. An … Continue reading Poetic Sense

Poetic Nature

The philosophy of poetry is much beyond the prosaic words. A poet is also a philosopher who meditates, rather than someone who corroborates the past narratives in a rich poetic manner. Understanding the philosophy of life that evolves every second is tough for consciousness. It is easy to get entangled in the words, but it takes philosophy to make poetry a great storytelling effort that … Continue reading Poetic Nature

Poetic Nature and Reality

As a poet, it is difficult not to be inspired by nature. The tranquillity, rage, transformation, struggles, and persistent lessons are not only profound but also teach patience and keen observational skills. It is an undeniable and absolute truth that we are of the elements and energies of nature. There are not many nature poems being composed of some pure passion.

A poet starts composing under different circumstances- sometimes it is euphoric love and passion or intense grief and failure. Nature and spirituality have … Continue reading The Facets of Poetry

W. B. Yeats, 1865 – 1939

William Butler Yeats Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second … Continue reading W. B. Yeats, 1865 – 1939

The Poetic Debate

Poetry is never unexplained but misunderstood quite often. Where poetry is birthed from and the circumstances it narrates can be unrelatable. A keen poet is inspired by unusual incidents, experiences, unsaid feelings, silence, chatter, anger, sadness, happiness, and many other nuances of life discovered on compassionately looking and listening to myriad reflections. Poets are travelers through ages; continuity of ceaseless seeking and learning. It’s an uninterrupted communication with the … Continue reading The Poetic Debate
