The Halfway Point: 7 of 14
We are very happy that Panorama has reached the halfway point in it’s evolution as a website. There have been fourteen editions of Panorama produced since 1999 and selections from seven of these are now published on this site.
We look forward to bringing you more poems from the minds, hearts and lives of Sri Chinmoy’s students and invite you to explore Panorama for poetry that offers you some joy or insight, or simply a moment of reflection. “Poetry,” Kahlil Gibran once said, “is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary.” Yet, it is more. Poetry can be the revelation of the hidden divine that secrets itself behind the mask of everyday human events. For, like music, poetry offers us an opportunity to express deeper ideas and feelings that usher forth from that misty region between silence and speech.
“He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life.” George Sand.
