read 'tween the lines

A Poem by Frieda P
"

_

"

Take each sentiment,
     twist at your own discretion
  a cathartic inquisition
   can grasp timely translations,
  bend them aptly to suit your
           own disaster's rhyme
  turns on a dime in 
           perspectives's intuition,
  everybody knows the
     ideas are simply overstated 
       and liberally conjugated 
   words read surreptitiously
          'tween the paraphrased lines
  aimless paths amidst seaweed petals
                  & wildflower drifts
   where horizons breathe to expand,
       & rush meets lush tranquility's rhythm






“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”    Khalil Gibran

ah ha, a philosophical poem from you Frieda... And music too, "I got nothing left to prove... to you" "a wildflower"...

I liked the feel of these words as I read them, they were like a "daisy in as field of roses" (from the song), or "wildflower drifts" (your words, which I found nicely "conjugated" by the way)... even in poetry, metaphor and image, there is reality, and it is either true or not, someone has twisted the meaning and intent of your words... hopefully I have not done this with this poem Frieda, missed the point...

you don't have to read between the lines to know that "wildflowers (and their drift)" are beautiful because they are "wild"... anyway, you know sometimes I go all over the place as I read your poetry Frieda...

Yeah, sometimes people/things are like the transformers...
More than meets the eye. I can think of a few times I should have looked deeper.

Yeah, and two brothers! :)
I sometimes feel paranoid reading between the lines, but I have come to find that sadly, most the times I am right, and when I don't, I get burned.:) Nice observationally twisted truth.

One must be an expert in reading between the lines, even life has its fine print. Love this one Frieda.

Life's fine print is the teeniest, you need flippin binoculars...thanks Anne.
It's all about how you twist it or should I say some peoples odd perspective?? Yes we must read between the lines sometimes to really get the truth whether from others or just life in general. x
