labbianlibey poetry from another planet | Eight poems (from another planet)


Long in the distance have I seen a Tree,
a source of Tonic Beauty, heightened sky;
Divinities that prune and green the Tree
originate from dreams the very Tree
has dreamt. The leaves are luscious, and Chagrin
is void.

From labbianlibey eight poems



These eight poems are meant to be an attempt to draw a poetical epoch gone into the current poorness of verse descriptivity.

As an example, English Romantic poets were devoted to entering into the things in search of details to be presented in such a way that the reader could have a satisfactory visual of the verse concerned. Since the verse used to have visual potential, then the recipients were stimulated to use their imaginative ability to an undefined extent in order to interiorise what they were reading.

The orientation to visualised detail has been dramatically impaired. Today variegated multifarious visualisation is not encouraged. And because it is not envouraged, it becomes sclerotised, suggesting that the vast majority of people cannot know how to retrieve the visualising capacity and heterogenise it.

These eight poems are for perusing—deep reading. They require a calm connective mindset as well as a certain desire to revive a past and ‘labbianise’ it a little. They are an example of what may be dubbed poetry of profundity.

The period of composition of these eight poems is 2017–2020.
