Pause and Ponder: Sufiesque Poetry for the Twenty-First Century

Rashid Osmani (Author)


The power of poetry is in its simplicity. It has the capacity to provoke thought, to induce change, and to make life more understandable. Modern English Poetry however is not a very popular genre. Some poems can go on and on with only the poets understanding the true meaning and intention of their verse. Short poems are generally much easier to handle as the reader doesn't waste much time even when they are dense. This book is a collection of short poems on a variety of topics viewed through the prism of a Sufi mindset - At times detached, at times passionately animated, they deal with situations that many of us face in a modern, connected world. They are framed with the unique perspective of Sufi philosophy that has provided comfort and guidance to millions of people over several centuries. It may also quench the spiritual thirst of societies caught in the endless web of instant self-gratification.
