I love exploring symbols in the BOOK OF CHANGES, which I treat as a book of QUESTIONS. The symbols are like seed-crystals that stimulate me to build an interpretive, expressive edifice. I try to write about them from a poetic standpoint. You can see my essays HERE (I suggest starting from the bottom of the list) :

    Let me quote from the poem- -
    -'Earthworm I feel sorry for you
    I bend over to pick you up
    You still have a little moisture
    Like the lover's lips in a day dream
    I lay you on a patch of damp grass
    Let you die with your nose in the dirt.
    - - - - How sympathetic his heart is for the earthworm, the little creature which serves as the muscle of soil, which made its venture to an unwelcoming place but we let it die.

    Denis Mair's poems are varied in topics and imbued with deep humane values.Another poem which touched me most is 'Bait of Pity'.It speaks of the poet's kind and sensitive heart towards the downtrodden people as well as small creatures of earth.(contd)

    Since my encounter with the poems of Denis Mair I have thought several times to write on his Poet Page, but felt short of words to describe such a great poet's creative treasure.The first poem I read was- Cows in Mysore and I was hooked.Even if he hails from a different country, different culture and different religion, the love and respect he bestowed on the people and places he visited are exemplary.(contd)

    She paid me in the kind of pennies that change hands when someone says PENNY FOR YOU THOUGHTS. I pay the thoughts forward and there is a shower of pennies from Heaven.

    I am humbled after reading through your poetry. Your poetic voice has a subtle soft ring to it as I read. At some parts the writing is conversational, and at others, I sense pure poetry at its best, with seamless meter, rhythm, alliteration and imagery. Metaphor and deeper meaning can easily be found by the reader, yet the writing doesn't hammer that in....which I like. The paths traveled by the speaker are much different from my own, which enables me (the reader) to go on a small adventure with each poem I read. The author's notes are of interest, but the style of writing enables the reader to also seek their own connections.

Original Soup Of Life

Tell me, how can six feet of DNA get wound up inside a nucleus that is measured in microns?

How can so much thread get unspooled without tangling? And how does it get wound up again like a hawser?

How does DNA in a chromosome get so packed into coils and supercoils that it becomes a big biocrystal?

When the cell needs a certain segment of coding, how does the double helix unzip to the right place?

Before the cell divides, the DNA must be copied. How can the helix possibly unwind at 100 rpm during the duplication?

When the cell is ready to divide, what ...
