11 Jul SPOTLIGHT ON THE MAKING OF TIME & KNOTS
Our relationship with time is very intriguing, the very notion of being alive, and experiencing the bubbles of our perceptions are all courtesy to the endless ocean of time.
When I first started to think about this collection, destiny had the title of the book already spinning in my soul, I am not sure how that happened, it’s like reaching somewhere and you know you have been there countless time, but you can’t recollect anything.
Acknowledging that ambiguity guided me to discover, explore and seek a pathway to poetic expression.
The journey of reflecting on our collective human essence, beyond the prevailing narratives and tangled space, and then harnessing that quest on pulp and ink was both liberating and kindling.
There were long moments where it felt like I was engulfed by a barrage of swinging pendulums, singing in their own rage the barriers between chaos and bliss non-existent. While the poet in me was struggling to shake off the dead weight, the reflection had seeded the inevitable transition.
The collection pitches the unison of cosmos into the bang of fertile summer, impregnating autumn colors, that fade into the numbness of winter, blooming it shine again in spring, while majestically the void bang keeps us all on the toe.
Each poem for me had to command its own space & pause, and a link to our heart’s depths and our eternal calls.Like how we are floating in many dimensions, and still hold on to our own singularity, our dreams, and our songs.
That dip invalidates the hours and we are truly transformed.
A poet is born.
