Re: Circles

Yorkshire Lad writes: I supose that should have read "Brief moments without content " as it was referring to the emptiness of a daydream . Sorry for the ambiguity… They say the purpose of narrative is to present us with ambiguity, that we might in turn be open to it, to take advantage of it, to look...

Re: Circles

Yorkshire Lad, I was trying desperately to get caught up in the ease of a daydream today, but my mind kept wandering back to this thread… Thanks for posting this additional verse… I am not rebellious So rest easy I only speak of equality But then equality is an ambition To reach equanimity And stay ...

Re: Why Not?

I came upon a very quiet day that held no special importance, yet initially, it had peered in my direction with a puzzled, sleepy eyed gaze. With no dictionary at my side to comprehend the bleak, blank spaces and severely jumbled-up images that circled round inside my head, a tumble of disconnected ...

Yorkshire Lad writes: I have tried to write a second verse that brings joy and happiness to the poem but my words always end up being negative and sorrowful and I do not want it to be . I find it strange how the poem was meant to be a message of hope and now looks like turning out to be a message of...

Re: Why Not?

After pedaling for many days straight, alone in the temperate air, I took refuge under a bridge, where the atmosphere felt a little bit reserved, but casual just the same. Immediately I was drawn into the various depths of my muse, wondering what next, it might call to mind. All of a sudden the brig...

Re: How To Speak Poetry

Take the word butterfly. Leonard writes: Do not make so much of the word. It is said that if a butterfly enters your guestroom and perches behind the bamboo screen, the person whom you most love is coming to see you. ..... Spirits succinctly uniting, by curves of chance. Two souls standing upright a...

Re: Why Not?

Ah, the unending flow of the mind, life, the world – and oh, but to make a connection, if only but once, for a single day… As I sat about dreaming up a recipe for the day, a simple hope came, then led me on, and the hours began to really feel like freedom. Immediately, for but a very brief moment, I...

Re: How To Speak Poetry

How bountiful this solitude, surrounded, filled and mastered by the Name, from which all things arise in splendour, depending one upon the other. …and finally, insane for the light, you are the butterfly and you are gone. It is not necessary to be in love, or to be in love with butterflies. Echoes, ...

Re: cage din

Juan Juanders I really enjoyed pacing 'round and through the words of your poem. Interesting how you make use of the poem's title, appropriately placing cage and din within the sentence…'you rattle the cage though you make not a din'…or perhaps the title was an afterthought upon the poem's completio...
