[Excerpt from the Introduction] "Poems in Spring of Awareness (the first section of this book) are composed in a specific literary genre. Each poem expresses not only pain, sorrow, fear and matters of the external world, but also an awareness of an unknown realm which is beyond body sensations, feelings and thoughts ...
Love is initially a physical sensation, a feeling or thought about something or someone who is known to us. If this love takes its natural course, it then transcends its own boundary. Poems in the second section
Longings and Love attempt to express that unknown love ...
The third and final section of poems,
