Discussion of This Room by Imtiaz Dharker
Mrs Mellor, Mr Murphy and Mr Williams discuss Dharker's poem about self-discovery and personal growth.
This Room by Imtiaz Dharker This room is breaking out of itself, cracking through its own walls in search of space, light, empty air. The bed is lifting out of its nightmares. From dark corners, chairs are rising up to crash through clouds. This is the time and place to be alive: when the daily furniture of our lives stirs, when the improbable arrives. Pots and pans bang together in celebration, clang past the crowd of garlic, onions, spices, fly by the ceiling fan. No one is looking for the door. In all this excitement I'm wondering where I've left my feet, and why my hands are outside, clapping.
