Panorama April 2004 Published

Friday, January 25th, 2008

We are very proud to announce that the April 2004 edition of Panorama is now published - a selection of 56 poems from an edition that was published during the American National Poetry Month of that year. Here is a poem from this latest edition which highlights one of the greatest poets in American literature, Emily Dickinson.

[Emily Dickinson's] unique, gemlike lyrics are distillations of profound feeling and original intellect, and they stand outside the mainstream of American literary tradition. “ PoetSeers.org

Ode to Emily Dickinson

Oh to be like Emily
Retreat from the world
Into the second floor of self,
Sending messages by a tether,
The thinnest possible line of contact,
Invisible, withdrawn into silence,
Close by the fragrant core of being,
The place of knowing,
The emptiness that can pour abundance
Onto the blank page.
Oh to read
Her luminous strings of words,
Like dew-dropped webs
Delicately stretched
Across the morning sun “
To see in them
The nearly forgotten
Rainbowed-reflections
Of our own sequestered selves!

Atmatyagi Kutt.

The Poetic Heart of Lord Byron

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

Such beauty in these poetic verses from Lord Byron…

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

——-

There is music in the sighing of a reed;
There’s music in the gushing of a rill;
There’s music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
