Yes, I'm certain
I agree. Really been in touch with life is poetry. The idea of poetry get so messed up by school and what they tell you poetry is￼
Absolute favourite Josh! I’m an ardent reader of Tagore’s work- the dissolving of the physical into spiritual. He is one of my most early influences, I devoured his short stories mid-teen years. This is the most eloquent introduction to tagore’s work that I ever read. Thank you so much for sharing.
This is beautiful. I feel like people overthink and try too hard to find what should/will make them happy when it’s simply the simple things in life, the simple everyday pleasures we experience in the present that we take for granted and don’t recognize their true value.
The language in this post is breathtaking!
What a beautiful thought and a lovely post. I love that line. I want poetry to be the "charioteer" of my soul. Thanks for this one, Josh.
"that poetry is indeed the charioteer of one's soul - and we are at it’s helm. All we need to do is recognise it." I keep reading this line. Your sentence and Tagore's writings all unveil an ethereal truth that though we can't exactly see the gong of ultimate truth, we hear the tone of its rings and follow them with our poetry to touch eternity.
very talented writer here, pace and poise i admire
