The Title itself gives us a hint about the amalgamation between the poem and the poet. There are certain natures of which the mutual influence is such that the more they say; the more they have to say. For these out of association grows adhesion, and out of adhesion, amalgamation. That’d what poetry and poet all about.
The book has five subdivisions in it-
I remember somewhere someone had said that In an age when nations and individuals routinely exchange murder for murder, when the healing grace of authentic spirituality is usurped by the divisive politics of religious organizations, and when broken hearts bleed pain in darkness without the relief of compassion, the voice of an exceptional poet producing exceptional work is not something the world can afford to dismiss. The poems like “ A Readers Response” and “ A disturbed sleep” very well defines the idea of the section.
I dream of quiet times, and productive days, working in an environment I am comfortable and at peace. I dream of being healthy and eating right and sleeping right and knowing I am working toward the life that I want to have. I dream of being with loved ones and seeing them happy and calm and with smiles on their faces while we enjoy each others company. I dream of a time when I am able to think without interruption and create without distraction. I dream of a simple life that allows me the freedom to be a good man and a happy man in the best of times and the worst of times.
The next section nt only describes the living of the poem but also describes a beautiful message to the readers. Don’t fail through defects of temper and over-sensitiveness at moments of trial. One of the great helps to success is to be cheerful; to go to work with a full sense of life; to be determined to put hindrances out of the way; to prevail over them and to get the mastery. Above all things else, be cheerful; there is no beatitude for the despairing.
