Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
It's poems like this that remind us of the real power of poetry -- to heal, to inspire, to incite, to awaken. Though poetry itself may feel insubstantial, the result within us and the world we continuously create is very real. This is the ancient power of enchantment, formulating a mind-state and passing it along to others through word and rhythm.
Contemplate the implications of this for a moment. Everything within the human world, every building and machine, every nation and neighborhood, is born of the human mind-state. Poets and sages have the same calling, to skillfully feed sparks of new awareness into the collective mind and, thus, remake the world. That's real power.
All that is eternal in me
Welcome the wonder of this day...
