Rays of Inspirations - Through a Bouquet of Poetry and Paintings
Author: Dolan Champa Saha, PhD
This is a compilation of my paintings and poems, capturing few precious moments of inspiration with my higher self, embodying the call of my inner journey to align my spirit with something vaster. Sometimes they are profound communications to a personalized form of a higher light, love, and power, felt deep within my heart, to which the invocations have been made.
It is a story of joy and light of human aspiration, the depths of fire in our hearts, longing for a greater love and touch, beyond the clutches of ego. It is an invitation to respond to the call of an awakening beauty, to merge in the greater essence of one’s being.
Many times, it is my walks in nature that inspired this deeper joy, as the all-empowering force of nature’s creative beauty and her intelligence filled me in awe. At times, the lines of the poems came as words during my sleep, driving, walking, eating… and then it felt like sentences were getting constructed before me. The words took the form of poems, while the images formed stimuli for my artistic soul and paintbrush strokes. At times, my brain felt on fire and my hands moved, hence, wrote pages in a hurry. Later on, more creative touches were added for rhyming and refining but tried to keep the initial inspirations as original as possible.
To understand the depths of the words, one might have to touch within oneself the pure innocence of a child, not yet touched by social conventions and its laws - where one can believe to be nestling in the arms of a sweet love, reposing in playful dreams of inner freedom, warmed by the benevolence of a smiling wisdom!
