About the Book
Ephemeral Echoes is an extension of Saad’s passion for poetry: a manifestation of his philosophy and intellectualism. The poems reflect on the schema of existence as a personification of sounds, where essence of existence is flux: flowing sounds. The poems are an expression of being—a testimony to existence regardless of its conditionalities—and relate to various facets of the human condition i.e. illusion, self, dichotomy, subjectivity, objectivity, singularity, multiplicity, morality and etcetera. The debut is an invitation to all of us to embark upon a reflective odyssey i.e. to further contemplate the intricacies of the temporariness of existence—individually and collectively.
