Reflections…

*

The single note to a symphony.

A fracture to the form.

One outcome amid possibilities range.

*

How the variation chases the theme,

and each colour its true hue…

*

Whilst the picture, seeking to depict,

distorts distance.

*

And what of chance in continuities dance?

Can we grant meaning to meanings?

*

Only with lenses cleansed

does the holy become real.

*

The gulf between becoming

and being is a quality of soul.

  1. I’m caught by the line “And what of the chance in continuities dance?” At first, I want to put an apostrophe at the end of continuities.’ But then, I reconsider. What if this difference is intentional? It is hard sometimes, to read poetry the way it is intended without wanting to smash the words to fit a mold that is easier to understand. I loved the imagery and the jangle of words I would not have put together the same way. It is a window into another mind and it is nice to be invited to view the world in a new way.
