Big Miniature - Poem by Dejan Stojanovic

To transform a grimace into a sound
Sounds impossible, yet it is possible
To transform a vision into music,
To go outside an enslaved personality,
To become impersonal by transforming
Into sand, into water, into light,
To feel the air and breathe the air
By becoming the air, become
A bird, the first cell, the first man,
Become a wandering comet,
A dying star, a newborn cluster of stars
And hear the melody of galaxies,
Love making of black stars,
Sense the hellish or heavenly nature of quasars,
Be in everything and come back
To a miniscule particle of personality
To find out how great all is.

    May be from a planet where someone who is made of Sulphur instead of Carbon, may be that one breathing out Sulphur Dioxide instead of Carbon Dioxide, and the plants consuming Sulphur Dioxide and giving Oxygen in return. She must be sexy gal of mustard color. May be poisonous for me, still I love to love her. (Report)Reply

    Electromagnetic waves don't need a medium for propagation. Sound and vision both can be transformed in electromagnetis waves and may be sent to the vacant space. Waves never die, may be one day we listen to the melody of another galaxy. (Report)Reply

    This poem reminds me that we can never be contented with a limited, fixed perspective. We want to situate ourselves in a cosmic totality, so we mobilize all the resources of thought and imagination. This is our birthright but also our burden as conscious beings: we cannot resist entering the systole and diastole of the cosmic heartbeat. (Report)Reply

    'To transform a grimace into a sound
    Sounds impossible, yet it is possible
    To transform a vision into music' - Loved these beginning lines, which have been dwelt upon more in details, subsequently.

    Excellent write. It's akin to the spirit of ancient Hindu philosophy of Advaita- All in one and one in all.
    You have come up with lovely images of universe. Thank you, Dejan.

    The poem speaks about escape from the personality. We can realize the greater world (that remains hidden in us) only by stepping out from our small room of personality. Well penned, dear poet Dejan

    Be in everything and come back
    To a miniscule particle of personality
    To find out how great all is...... to come to this experience after all that you have written in the beginning of the poem is surely a great task and only a great mind and thinker can do it. thank u dear poet. tony

    From miniature the BIG arrogate everywhere
    Miniature begets every BIG through the womb of time
    And The BIG goes to miniature at end of timing rhyme
    Miniature is equal to BIG
    BiG is equal to Miniature
    This is the whole NATURE!

    ///// Excellent and mastermind writing

    Be in everything and come back
    To a miniscule particle of personality
    To find out how great all is.

    A beautiful journey of awareness and transformation and
    then to comprehend the true nature of the good spirit within.

    Lovely poem Dejan. Congratulations!

    An adventure of the mind and soul. Not certain if you meant this, but it most certainly sounds like astral travel. A brilliant piece of writing. Thoroughly enjoyed such vivid imagery. Congratulations on a well deserved Poem Of The Day, Dejan! (Report)Reply
