Phases: A Collection of Poetry
A phase is defined as any stage in a series of events or a process of development; while we all go through different phases in life, at times we either forget to notice or simply become fearful of transitions, inadvertently being ignorant about the fact that this phenomenon is universal. In this short poetry collection, the blogger has attempted to capture this subtle yet powerful phenomenon – phases that are observable in every journey undertaken.
Here’s the first poem –
Once upon a time began a story,
One that preceded the old granny’s,
Kind of majestic, kind of silly…
The story glanced at the human tale
And built the drama of our coming-of-age;
Cultural riches, potions, a legacy in storage
That led the imaginative heart’s dream
To fly high until detained by authority,
That questioned before listening
And answered before knowing.
Stories adorn with garlands these phases
Of mankind, the world and the universe’s,
Weaving powerful parallel universes
In stories after stories after stories.
