“Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.”~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. From the nominee of Wordsbrew Authors’ Award, first timeauthor, Carl Porten’s ”A Poet’s Reverie ” is a beautiful journey to bring Carl’s inspiring, poetic artwork to be unfolded like a reverie to the world as his poems deal with the themes of love, compassion, life , grief, veganism and nature conservation. Essentially Carl’s volume of poems permeates the spirit itself. That Carl had been a humanitarian and an activist for many decades all through his life and all of his unheard and untold life experiences help diversify his unique writing style when it comes to his poetries an undeniable fact. Carl’s poetry thus defies any genre and is all encompassing in the literal sense of the term as it touches all souls and all lives. This book is the testimony that shows how the universe manifests its power through lives as if these poems are a stream of reverie constituting a bigger cosmic tale that’s being told. To sum up your experience, Maugham’s idea can best describe your journey, “A state of reverie does not avoid reality, it accedes to reality.” ~ W. Somerset Maugham. Please enjoy this beautiful poetic work you’re going to cherish for the rest of your lives…in every heartbeat… “To lose one’s self in reverie, one must be either very happy, or very unhappy. Reverie is the child of extremes.”~ Antoine Rivarol.
WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
The book is a compilation of my thoughts, emotions, feelings and experiences faced in my life that inspired me to write this collection of poems, A Poet’s Reverie. My target audience for the book will be the ones who need the flicker of optimism and unbiased real world facts in their lives as my poems would help my target audience to do away with any illusory, unreal ideas about life, humans and animals, by life both included likewise and mother nature as well. Dreams like freedom, equality and even life today lack hope. I wish to bring hope about a more compassionate life, that would take us closer again to Mother Nature. In my search for perfection as an activist poet I realized my soul’s reverie as it poured out itself to give shape to my idealistic thoughts in pursuit of compassion, justice, love, fairness, and equality.
Here’s one of my favourite poems from the book: Hope you’d all enjoy reading it!!
A World beyond Dreams…
I’ve taken a sip
from a chalice of gold,
an’ see clearly now
dreams my future doth hold.
I feel it rush through me
as rays of light,
open my doorway
to show what’s behind…
…and it’s beautiful,
like no other sight,
where a seed fills a garden
that bursts into life.
Thou shalt, thou shan’t,
thou can, thou can’t,
if we look deep inside
we can learn from our hearts,
that everything’s possible,
no dream’s too far
if we stretch past the place
where the sky hangs the stars…
An’ it’s really not far,
when the fuel in your heart’s
burnin’ love an’ compassion
we’ll blast past the stars
to a place where our world
an’ our future’s serene,
is the prize we’ll find
…in a world beyond dreams.
