I have been counting ways of holding you.But I bear no seeds, no chariot, no home.And I have never seen a passing. - “Eleusinian Mystery”Nikita Bastin’s first collection of poems, Anchor, explores society and its forgotten. Bastin walks through her existence with spirit, a temper, and the wonder of a child beginning to comprehend grief. She reflects on her growth, breathing life into everything from Shere Khan of The Jungle Book to the woman across her condo, and finds herself at the conclusion: “It has become too late for my heart.” Bastin’s collection is a quest, a hunt that never quite succumbs to panic; slowly and deliberately, she searches for something to h...

Divine Trouble is a journey that begins with fear and ends in the pursuit of trouble. The book breathes poetry inspired by nine universal emotions. It is a poetic tryst with much of what is often unacknowledged within the colossal depth of the human soul. It is a lament, a love affair, a celebration and an ecstatic torment.
Look! It is the time of autumn, and the wind is blowing; the leaves, crisp and yellow, are preparing their adieu. Now look again! The dervish has stopped whirling and is on his knees; the wine in his cup is finished, and the Saki has left.He has retired to his lodge where the wind is teasing the candle’s flame. He cannot go back to fill the cups: he has become intoxicated by the sight of spinning. Who has the eyes to look into his heart and say if he was (not) envious of the dervish who seeks closeness to his god through elaborate whirling? And while you were contemplating this question, you forgot about the leaves. They have fallen; and look yet again! They too are whirling; some Saki filled their cups with the winds of autumn.
Man, ever since the beginning of time, has been looking for true love. Loving anything within the material realm brings untold suffering due to our own desires and needs. These misconceptions are bound to happen when we are ignorant of the real self. Bliss is also continuously sought after by mankind. In fact, what a drunkard pursues through drinks is happiness, which is also similar to someone addicted to physical pleasure. As a matter of fact, all of humanity, without an exception, desires love and joy. None has told them to do so, yet they only seek happiness. No one desires the emotions of sorrow and pain. As the myriad scriptures declare, “Man is made in the likeness of God.” Mystics are called that because they yearn for a divine entity, who transcends all material realms. Man, b...
