“…and maybe I should use abstraction more often…”
As I’m penning these lines, I’m contemplating on the numerous ways I can fall asleep. When I am exhausted, normally I easily fall asleep. But when I feel that way and I’m still awake around 11 pm onward; Sleep seems to be remnant of the past. Albeit a tiresome day, I’m glad that it was a productive one. At least all my efforts paid off. I really like it when my work is appreciated, especially if my plans were followed down to every detail. Who doesn’t, right?
Now going back to the topic, why dabble on abstraction? What merit can I derive from it? Isn’t it a far cry from my spontaneous combustion of expressive lines that threatens to overwhelm and drown my readers? Well, my friend, that’s really not the case this time. More often than not, we tend to observe little scenes from our everyday lives that when written down, can be interpreted in a variety of ways. That, in itself is the abstraction’s cutting-edge. The reader may never guess the intended meaning of the poetry, but after a brief introspection, they’ll appreciate it, nonetheless. (To be continued…)
