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.

    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

    This seems like kind of a list poem without any sort of supporting argument that the adventure will, or even can, lead to the conclusion of how great all is. Maybe for you, but there's no emotional investment described to convince me that it might be so for me. I need more than just the list of different perspectives, the physical aspects, if the result is to add up to a sum greater than the parts. (Report) Reply
