Circumventions, related thereof

Circumventions, related thereof

A Poem by J


Still, I confess 
there is much more to unearth 
and understand about certain connotations 
- the ability to breathe when cold envelops 
- the span of fingers broken to fit
- the sure melody of grace when it overcomes 
the source of whatever pain it took to state 
the overwhelmingly obvious. 

There are limitations placed upon oneself. 
All that stress, confusion and sense of irony 
can be imposed with an iron composure. 
And there is a certainty to a body's angles 
when draped in the sunlight of forgiveness, 
each argument given over to philosophy 
between students of life and lore. 

I search for the definition of beauty. 
I often come up empty, but fervent in my belief 
that there is a way to define each parameter 
as if each molecule of thought depended 
on each previous interaction. 

This world is full of endless promises. 
The stars are uncountable, yet we, as dynamics beings 
strive to count the impossible, strive to find 
the perfection in a clearly prescribed 
hypothetical situation. 

Mark each word. Open the sky with probabilities. 
Scan the horizon with fluid prophecies 
born from reason and fire.

This is a beautiful poem, J. It expresses to me our confounded attempts to circumvent that which uncapturable. Forgiveness should be all about on such an Aniversary. These lines say it all for me.

And there is a certainty to a body's angles
when draped in the sunlight of forgiveness,

Your work shines, as always

Smiling at you

I think it is a map. Apparently, I have cartography on the brain today. I told you that I would come again on another day. And tell you what i think.

And I think that I feel the words, they envelop me in that beautiful poetic voice that is uniquely yours. I float away on a breeze. I see past the horizon. I wish that oceans and mountains and worlds didn't come between. Because if I were going to take a walk out into the world with poets, I would want you to come along.
