Cosmic Field Trip IV

Cosmic Field Trip IV

Would you look? Would you take a peek? Into the great big void stare, Radiation bursts… blinding glare; Infinite routes to infinite universes, Infinite riches and beauties, Infinite “me’s” and “you’s”. Infinite possibilities and choices not made, Infinite dreams accomplished or dashed by routine’s blade. Infinite loves, infinite losses, Infinite half empty and half full […]

How Do I Love Thee?

How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love […]

H.A.L.F 1

Book 1: The Deep Beneath “I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.” The Deep Beneath is the first instalment in Natalie Wright’s young adult science fiction series entitled H.A.L.F., which was inspired by the Roswell UFO Incident, but the author took it to a whole […]

Skelling

Skelling

O light the candle, John The daylight has almost gone The birds have sung their last The bells call all to mass Another song from Loreena McKennitt I enjoy listening lately, probably because of the gloomy weather, is Skelling, a track included on the 1997 album The Book of Secrets. In Skelling, a dying Irish […]

A Reader’s Universe

A Reader’s Universe

Many worlds have I seen, On the roads to great adventures I have been. Many lives I have lived, In different atmospheres I have breathed. Countless worlds and lives I’ve seen lost, As goodwill and morality aside were tossed. I have witnessed heroes rise and smite cruelty incarnate down Treated with great respect, yet… as […]

A Wounded World

A Wounded World

“The world has wounded this boy terribly, Marsh, and he can’t forgive it. He’s angry and obstinate and fears nothing— even and especially me. I just can’t make this boy see and act for his own good. He hides from the world in that bloody garden and paints the moments of his life, ignoring his […]

Songs of Kabir

Songs of Kabir

For today’s post, I’m going to review a poetry collection entitled Songs of Kabir, which is written by the Indian saint and mystic poet Kabir and it is translated into English by another famous Indian poet, Rabindranath Tagore. What I understood from Evelyn Underhill’s presentation of Kabir’s life and poems is that Kabir was the […]

Four Plays of Aeschylus Part 2

The Seven Against Thebes (Ἑπτὰ ἐπὶ Θήβας) depicts the siege of Thebes along with the cruel fate of the two brothers, Eteocles and Polynices, who were cursed by their father, the late King Oedipus, for not taking care of their blind father and for their selfishness and thirst for power. From my point of view, […]

Four Plays of Aeschylus Part 1

Four Plays of Aeschylus Part 1

Though I’ve already written a review in Romanian for Prometheus Bound, it would have been strange if I didn’t write something about the entire volume that includes four of Aeschylus’ tragedies: The Suppliant Maidens, The Persians, The Seven Against Thebes and Prometheus Bound. What you need to know about Aeschylus is that he is one […]
