Red Dusk

Red Dusk

A Poem by Dani California

 

  

 

 

Oil paint and fine textured fabric,

strewn in skies of dusk,

veils understanding;

mere sight is relied upon

as faith prays behind the big picture.

 

An illusion of senses create beliefs,

cloaked in flesh and arrogance;

seeing is believing.

Denial holds its cloth in place

as sanity unfolds within complacency.

 

Painted are invisible paths to nowhere,

leaving smudged footprints to follow,

only appearing to be solid;

notions of reality rest within pretense,

as truth stands alone on the other side of dusk.

Many people see only what they want to see, for them - reality is merely that. For those who think as well as see, it becomes more. This poem suggests just that point, and, you use words to make the reader think, use metaphors to create more than just a single thought...

This is a beautifully crafted piece of writing, font colour so right for the beautiful picture

'An illusion of senses create beliefs, / cloaked in flesh and arrogance; / seeing is believing; ' < , sadly, how true.

Thank you for sharing.

to describe the impossible things that create the future,
such are mysteries, what waits for each of us on the other side,
an known but intuition allows glimpses or feelings that can
relate to the follow, as the journey leads to enlightenment.
I really like this poem, the imagery is the red dusk beauty ^_^

As each line flows graciously into the next, your insight reveals wisdom. A poem that is created by an artist's brush stroke of words is refreshing. Fabulous piece!

I know I reviewed this piece, but wanted to revisit. I hope you realize what extraordinary work this is, Dani....reflective of the mystery in your profound spirit...

I read my other review and still feel the same; it is , indeed, larger than life...
And that last stanza is amazing....still....

I guess this reveals the timeless beauty of your work... The graphic perfectly complements the air and tone of the work...

Love you, my friend.
