SIDEREUS: BELONGING TO THE STARS
by Muskaan Ayesha
Sidereus is a Latin word translating to "Belonging to the stars". The title is a dedication to the muse of the words. Inspired by Rumi and his belief in true love, Sidereus is poetry that demonstrates the struggles and aesthetics of finding something so pure in today's generation.
Consisting of exactly 30 poems, Sidereus is a more accurate visualization of the ups and downs of even the strongest of relationships - with the intention of showing the world (specifically, the lovers) - that, to love someone, does not mean to possess them. Love is the act of adoration and remembrance against all odds.
