    Truly a wonderful work of verse which presents the art of crafting imagery of beauty imbued with deep seathed mening that a voice of poetry may bring out.

    The imagery created from the creative devising of a symbolic image found in the Swan, (which has been a classic image/subject of poetry across the ages and differnt cultures from Eastern to classical Greek) alofts the sense of alluring the voice of the poet creates in addressing to the reader the deeper meaning entrenched in the textual mosaic of the poem crafted through metaphor, description and also imagery.

    The setting of nature bound environs can also seem refective of certian yearning that the psyche is attempeting to convey. The question that is raised at the end may be a move towards resolution, and again possibly raises even further questions. However the matter of reality and portals to it may be sometimes inward rather than outward would be a point worth thinking about when reading this poem.

    The levels of conciousness touched on by the poet would be interesting and highly refelctive of the dextrous mindset that goes to craft verse such as this.A poem to celebrate.

  • POEM: The Ghostly Shadow by Dulakshi Wakista (2/23/2010 5:00:00 AM)

    The poem captures superbly the pertubation caused to the psyche and the nonplussed sense that comes from such an experience.Yet from a point of narrative one may wonder where the poet intends to place the inner voice of the speaker which ehre seems to be ambigious in terms of the voice of the 'ghost' being within the larger narrative of the first person speaker.

    The imgaery portrays the perpections of a young mind caught in a twilight scenario where notions of reality seem blurred, and the imagination takes a potent dimension for interpretation.The final moment described may be the point of resolution but does not leave the reader with concrete answers, and ambiguity is allowed to pay a greater role in terms of intrepretation.

  • POEM: Bearhug by Michael Ondaatje (2/10/2010 11:52:00 AM)

    A touching poem, one that is very endearing when you think of how a father's parental emotions is not a theme too common...also the fact that Griffin being the one to call his father shows how the son's filial attachement is a calling to paternal kindlings in the poet.It is the son who makes this voice of the poem come into being.

    My BA dissertation was a study of Michael Ondaatje's lyricism in novels.The study looked at 'Coming Through Slaughter' and 'The English Patient'. It was titled 'Stroking Lyrical Bodies': A textual exploration foe elements of lyricism in the novels Coming Through Slaughter and The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje.

    'Divisadero' was also an absolute treat, Ondaatje reaches a new angle of lyrical expression and crafts a marvelous emotional landscape, and its also a good recovery from 'Anil's Ghost.'
