The Sparkle, the Glowing
Light, the Infinite, the Genius
Whether we read poems by Eminescu or we became acquainted with the subtlety
of his creation maze we all have become fascinated by the fact that his
entire work relies on a philosophy concerning all aspects related to man
and his short lived existence through universe.
A paradox for the ordinary people though deeply rooted in reality, Eminescu
seems to have ignored reality.
Eminescu is an unreal universe for the real one.
He doesn’t belong to any other reality for the genius can exist only
in a one dimension universe. His genius is the
bridge between reality and never endingness, underlying the hope that some
day we shall become immortals. By offering him to us ,the universe has
already revealed to us one of his hidden secrets. It seemed to be the way
of the world for such a brilliant poet not to linger too long on earth.
During his lifetime Eminescu was perceived only as a feeble rwinkling star
by his contemporaries, a sparkle appearing in the firmament from time to
time. Nobody knew what powerful reactions would loom from this ignored
sparkle. Too much tormented by the inner creating flame Eminescu gave off
a part of his inside in order to face the sunshine of the universe. Too
blinded by the queer vibrations of the modest star the people of his time
couldnt perceive the halo surrounding him. Only when the star faded out
the huge shining amount was released and the blast which was going to last
for ever in the universe took place. At the last moment when the other
stars saw themselves flooded by the ocean of white light they finally realized
how meaningless they were in comparison with the one that once had been
perceived only as a feeble twinkling star.
So, people, perceive the twinkle, the brilliance, the blast. You may never
know when the first one is the last one and which of them floods or guides
the universe some day. .
