Macroscopic Miniatures

A Poem by Leaner Pastures
"

...reflections..on...reflections...

"


the world is smaller than you think
and larger than you know

filled to the brink
it'll never overflow

the deeper you sink
the more you will grow

no matter how far back you slink
the further to the front you go

smaller than you think
and larger than you know

you see,

it's smaller than you know
and larger than you think

no matter how far to the front you go
the further back you slink

the deeper you grow
the more you sink

filled to overflow
but never to the brink

the world is smaller than you know
and larger than you think

This is like a psychological 'tongue twister'...my minds still reeling from the effort. I got visions of karma, existentialism, determinism, dualism and functionalism from this. It's a really simple format that penetrates the thought processes. Exceptional craftsmanship, take care, spence
(ps- wanted to say thanks for your review of my poem 'freedom to...'- I forgot to answer it. Sorry about that!)

Ain't it the truth! No matter which way you turn it, it's always upside down...

Up, down, round and round as the poem follows a helical path of thought. I loved the universality and dimension of this piece along with the selection of form.
