    "Imagination and Action in Full Moon" Full Moon as a volume of poetry is all about taking imaginative action, to let the landscape of images free and unfettered, to explore horizons beyond the ken of everyday In this awareness of self, says the poet, both of us - poet and reader- are engaged in a discourse, a communion of sorts running through time or hacking back to the past. Defying the gravitational pull in the form of established notions of doctrines, politics, power and the abuse of privileges. They are transitions and the transience of underlines the illusory nature in the passage of time. In Full Moon we are invited to a world where the quest for perpetual insights and advancements of the imaginative faculties take precedence over all other quests. This undertaking we are told begins from the point where we express the nudge to find inner freedom which when illuminated shall fructify in the release of new images of understanding. Old viewpoints lose or add to their... More > original meaning and a whole fresh vista of cognition emerges. ‘Inspiration’ describes this process of creative transformation, the world of ideas that penetrates through the mundane everyday circumstances and discovers by that act realities and idealisations of being. The predominant active image of the viper startles and even frightens the mind and inverts the mental association (of that reptilian distaste) to present a process that “uncoils” inexorably into the farther recesses of creative envisioning. In ‘Sound of Silence’ the presentation of the option of discovery, of a sound of silence that surrounds the creative process contradicts the vagaries of the world of nescience represented by earth’s cavern, mind games and lives of “noise and jazz.” They equate darkness with partial visions and enact an ambitious promise that thoughts (poetry) are living exemplars of immortal values. The three poems, ‘Inspiration,’ ‘Sound of Silence’ and ‘Prophecy’ depict, in a language heightened by ethereal densities, the attainment of conscious awareness of purpose, destiny, and existence. “The sound of my silent passage” is but the poetic expression that quietly, unobtrusively carries some poignancy (of “centripetal breaths”) that focuses on the energies from which great ideas, thoughts, and imagination are wrought. Dreams, Love and Ideals in Full Moon Full Moon contains a section that qualifies as love poems. The choice of the tile ‘Night’ and the reinterpretation of an African night of quite stillness and silence encapsulates our total aesthetic sensibility and prepares the mood for the experience of a transcendental feeling of “another life…” where the “never-ending love” surrounds us and assures us of the reality of the dream. The emergence of an abiding sense of optimism is creditable to the belief and celebration of all actions that are borne from true love such as we see in “Waiting,” “A Prayer” and “A Toast to my bride” which constitute some Chin Ce’s most enthralling love poems.< Less
