Metamorphoses: Poetic Discourses is the 2nd book of poems by Saad Ali. It is a testimony to the quartet of the forces of love, hate, fear and courage as the begetter and annihilator of our existence and transformations. The poems are born as aficionados of the respective quartet. While reflecting upon why and how this quartet influences our being, the poems encourage us to embrace life with all her facets and live as even proactive actors of the dialectical phenomenon that metamorphosis is, for the manifestation of all, small and big, is an embodiment of some form of metamorphosis.
This book of poems is an instance of sharing of Saad’s experiences of love, hate, fear and courage with everyone in the world. It is an invitation to a collective and individual contemplative odyssey. And an invitation to making a difference in our own and others’ lives as conscious beings.
