A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

A philosophy write...I would rather choose tolerance over judgment in most cases and ponder the infinite wholeness of humanity.

"










Mandala/………………By Sami Khalil

A philosophy write and not religious...

=====================================================



No longer do I hold a slew of

Scissors, rocks and canes,

In hands or mind corners.

What I hold are lifelines,

Anchored in deliquescent love

And tendered samples.

 

No longer do I remember an onslaught of

Passerbyes, chasers and distractors,

In glances or tousled pep talks.

What I remember are aftermaths,

Done in soulful strands

And kindled sparks.

 

No longer I’m the hushed shadows,

High tides and barrier reefs,

Littering in masterful disguises,

The drifting to paranoia,

Plastered in explicit glamour.

 

No longer but the navigator

Of the Great Beyond;

A keen wit of the infinite

Mandala.

What I remember are aftermaths,

Done in soulful strands

And kindled sparks.



No longer I’m the hushed shadows,

High tides and barrier reefs,

Littering in masterful disguises,


It feels so good to not judge anymore, accept the world and its people as they are👌👌
Your writing evokes a sense of relief :)

you speak of wanting/finding balance in the world Sami... and it is definitely much needed in todays world that is for sure, overall and personally...

what troubles me though (for me personally), is that it is contradiction and the struggle of opposites that determines the flow of everything... and I think that without working on these contradictions in ways that allows for them to actually change in positive directions the chaos and imbalance can never really be achieved... some things we can end (wars and suffering, oppression and hatred among different peoples for example) and have peace but somethings (like new disease, tragic weather conditions, death) can be reduced and made more understandable but never be ended... contradictions is the fabric of life itself, even some aspects of chaos will always be with us and if not, we couldn't, wouldn't exist...

I love your poem and the hope you are capturing within it, the desires of people to have a life free from all this stupidity we are faced with... but to get there I think Sami you may still need to be high tides and barriers reefs... your poem allows us to see the possibilities not only the way things are but also the way things could become...

sorry fo going on here but your poem also provokes lots of thoughts to be shared... colorful mandalas too...

Love the lower 2 mandalas! I like your message & I myself am a work in progress in putting away my judgmental likes & dislikes of early adulthood. You've stated your philosophy using original metaphors & contrasting observations. I especially love the 2nd stanza, becuz when someone comes to us broken, they do not need pep talks, but loving understanding . . . most of us know what we need to do to pick ourselves up. What we need is someone to sit with us until we find the strength & determination to do what we need to do.

No longer I’m the hushed shadows,
High tides and barrier reefs,

Your work is always intelligent and your command of the language superb - but for some reason, the above are the stand out lines for me. A wonderful write, Sami
