MUNIR MEZYED - PREFACE OF THE BOOK - DIGGING IN THE FOUNTAIN OF LIGHT - BY DR. SEEMA DEVI - INDIA




PREFACE FOR DIGGING IN THE FOUNTAIN OF LIGHT...


Poet Munir Mezyed is an Arab muslim Palestinian/Jordanian poet , born on Jan 1 st.He had his education in US and UK , traveled extensively around the world, now married and settled in Bucharest ,Romania, a city of poetry. I may dare to say as is Albert Einstein in Physics and Michael Angelo in arts so is Munir in the world of poetry. He exploits the Orient thoughts and western education to create a unique and original style of poetry, which was not there in the past nor there will be in future.
If there is anything called ABSOLUTE in this world, then we can claim Munir’s poetry as ABSOLUTE POETRY. But I presume in Creation there is nothing which is absolute. Nobody can break the record of the style of his writing but for himself.....let us see this poem....

Carrying the memory of the universe
The blue light flies to my voice
Searching for the spirit of imagination.

Poetry is the voice of GOD, and is purest beautiful form of human expressions of thoughts and emotions. Only humans are blessed with this gift. I can term Poet Munir sir’s poetry as NANO POETRY as it has surpassed all gross levels in usage of words thoughts and has reached ethereal, sub -atomic levels. Hence we can say his is a NANO POETRY and ABSOLUTE poetry.This poem let us read......

The waves are attempts of the jealous sea ,
To drive the water out
When it discovers the love affair
Between the water and me..........we can never imagine the waves and sea and jealousy in this dimension.

Another poem............
Silence reveals to the water the secrets of the playful nymph,
At the sun set
She climbs the columns of light by the ropes of my voice
Searching for the throne of water

His poems are fresh like flowers as they spring from child like innocence. As a child is convinced that the clouds are floating bundles of cotton, Munir weaves the visible world into a garland of poetry with innocence, awe and love. His poetry is conceived by the poet in poetic madness and in a state of spiritual hallucination. The images he describes can be visualized with the inner eye only in a heightened awareness of consciousness, not otherwise. Can say in a state of deep meditation where silence speaks to silence. Hence his poetry is ethereal, luminous, mercurial, evasive, appealing , and imposing peace and tranquility. He has full self confidence. See this poem..........

In the gardens of inspiration
Water and light beg for my words...........

Munir is a son of whole globe as his poetry has entered every home though his roots are in Palestine. Poetry is Munir’s passport to travel around the globe. He says God resides in heart. Poetry is a temple and Love is the Deity, God resides in words. Love is his religion and he is a free bird who can never be caged with nationality, religion or language....Let us see this poem.......

Unexpected rain
Showers the soul with the voice of God
As soon as it stops
I hear the yelling of ode........

His poetry looks erotic, passionate and earthly with simple words. No , it is a first bible of mysticism , love and a pathless path paving to the way of God. A poetry without border, religious imagery is only to confirm One Reality. He inflames poets, ignites our imagination, offers freedom from loneliness, pain, sorrow and fear of death; and wants to liberate the oppressed psyche of mankind. Munir is a mystic poet. His poetry is simple apparently with simple words, but spins your intellectual mind as you cannot understand underlying , veiled meaning. Some odes the poet only can explain. His poetry is narcotic, mystic, divine, liberating, healing, fills us with love and compassion. A poetry of eternity squeezed in two lines, visible but veiled, transparent yet opaque deep and layered with prophetic vision....This poem is so mystic , the poet has to explain.........

In the virgin silence
A flock of petals chirps in the lake
And a mirror abstains from talking........

He will take you into his wondrous world of trees , flowers ,butterflies , hills, valleys , rivers , waterfalls , nymphs , maidens , Venus, fire , soil ,rain ,waves , sand ,desert , fruits , meadows, clouds, moon , sun ,stars ,light, sky.....you will go dizzy in his world of love and beauty and get addicted to his poetry without your knowledge. He will drench with his drizzle of love, beauty and mirth, to make you feel life is eternal and worth living.....see this lovely poem.........

Venus sleeps
In the magical shell of love
Dreaming the lips of my caressing her breast......
And this ode........
The sky with all the stars
Drowns in your eyes
Searching for the pearls of spirits......

Yet he will shock you with contrast to his heaven, his Nether Land of sorrow , hunger, thirst , depravity, wailing ,homelessness, death , pain , exile bitterness, torture, assassinations ,killings, instability and agony. He shows that he is sensitive to these human sufferings. And, uses his Azure poetry, as a bridge to unite humans and herald peace, freedom, honor, glory, human dignity and happiness. This poetry Digging of the Fountain of Light is, searching of divine , pure knowledge from the fountain of divine wisdom which can be used as a miraculous medicine like stem cell therapy to the unlimited diseases ailing humanity. This is well evident from this poem.......

Everything baths in the memory of the blue legend
And the light of mysterious prophecy drinks the reflection of my voice
Thus the sacred charm fills the corners of the word
With the scent of eternity......

Yes Munir Mazyed , you are a great living giant in modern poetry , by freeing the poetry from the chains of slavery , power and narrow-mindedness , your words are perfuming the whole humanity . God bless you.

Dr. Seema Devi
