The purpose of this thesis is to explore relationships within different worlds. These include the relationship within the world of family, both mine and those of people I am close to; the relationship between the worlds of the material and the metaphysical; between the worlds of waking and dreaming; between the worlds of humanity and nature; and finally, between the worlds of good and evil. The poems are also meant to examine the lines between these seemingly disparate worlds. especially in instances when the lines become blurred, as they do so often for me. The work is influenced heavily - and oftentimes constructed entirely out of- dreams, which I've experienced in vivid color and detail nearly every night of my life. It also draws upon my experience as shaped by different environments, which include nature, my ancestral homeland of India, and, of course, my dreams. Most importantly, this work is my attempt to bring to light the hidden magic in these worlds, environments, and relationships, to remind people of the powerful magic that is infused in all things, and how the smallest details in life can continue to influence us well after we'd ever expect them to.
