Searching for identity, truth and meaning? Have you already started on your journey? Inside you will find both prose and poetry exploring themes of abandonment, emotional pain, meaning, authenticity, commitment and identity. The last five chapters are expressed exclusively in prose. It is there that you will see how these themes tie in with moral and spiritual development, mysticism, self-realization and natural science. As the search for meaning is traced, prose is interspersed with poetry, and gives order and context to the poems, while the poems illustrate and give emphasis to the writings. The introduction in Chapter 1 describes what poets attempt to do in writing poetry. The book contains reflections on life as well as on poetry itself, with poems about living, learning, loving, and dreaming-poems about the human condition. The author asks about our place in the larger scheme of things, our place in the cosmos, and how we come to recognize that. The technique of interspersing prose with poetry permits the reader to trace his own search for identity, truth and meaning. This technique also promises the reader to have sparkling insights on the interface of philosophy, psychology and natural science.
