Bit of rust speaks:
Is it? Is it?
Is it important
How we feel
At this journal
Of the Persian wheel?
In buckets, undershot,
Climbs round to
Like a noria lifting
Water from a stream,
Is it? It is.
Have been reading a book by Ted Hughes on writing poetry as I have just published a short collection of my poetry, Kaleidoscope, after years of not writing. Love your observation. Poetry is wonderfully liberating.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Carole! Best wishes for Kaleidoscope success. I agree, poetry is liberating. It can save lives --as it has saved mine twice. I wish it had the same effect upon people Ted Hughes loved. Which book are you reading?Delete
It never ceases to amaze me how ancient architects understood physics and math so very well, that their designs remain firm.ReplyDelete
I too have a faith in human talent for improving life by reason derived from observing nature. We are like children, natural rubberneckers: once we get the principle of a thing, our world gets less baffling.Delete
Love the observer climbing round to the observed and seeing that everything's important. Love this one.ReplyDelete
Observer to observed is how life seems to go as it spreads. Reality is getting pretty reliable!Delete
I was about to say the same as Remembering Grace! Thanks Geo!ReplyDelete
Most kind, Indigo. Sometimes it seems to be wheels within wheels but it's probably the same wheel, the same wheel for all of us.Delete
Thank you for sharing such a meaningful poem. Your poems make me think and after I think they seem even more amazing:)ReplyDelete
Most kind, Munir. I will get out my watercolors oftener.ReplyDelete
