Some streams of eastern philosophical thought propose that everything in the universe is connected, forming the web of the universe – a connectedness that does not destroy the individuality of a being. Confluence, an anthology of poems, is a perfect example of this connectedness. It is a coming together of many minds and flowing together as one mind like tributaries meeting together and flowing as one river. Each poem has been composed by many poets chipping in one after another, after reading what has been written. The compositions are strung around a theme that holds the poem together ad yet retains the individuality of each poet and expresses diverse thoughts without distortion. The editors have done the wonderful job of keeping the flow. This is indeed a novel attempt made possible by technology.
Blow a kiss into the air for it will find the lips that care.
The cocktail of verses are vibrant,and the themes justmesmerise. They are sensuous andtouch the pericardiumwithall abacus. Who says poetry is a trans-situation or meditation?
This anthology is a book where all poets have dived into acreative zone.They have enjoyed like children playing marbles.Ultimately we get the bunch of beautiful poems that bubble and swing harmoniously.Perhaps they mingle like Ganga andYamuna to form a poetic confluence. Like Ubuntu all the poets have reached the finishing line holding hands together.
You can say Aha! or Awwbut at the end of each poem you can feel their transparent smiles.........
It is indeed something that different poets of different backgrounds can come together and write one poem that is so harmonious. The most impressive thing is that there was no ego in this coming process. Great minds have brought together a unique set of poems. Kudos!
