A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__Touched__

 

 

In the Purple passages

my precept of perception

a prescription of purple’s

perspective in pondering

perplexed by public view’s

Principles alters pathways

in this world purple is blue

time past in my color phase

gone astray… blue went askew

reforming my minds display

purple to blue my purview

I have caught sense of dismay

framing things purple to true

strange it was to my survey

calling purple berries blue

sometimes we just must obey

lest somehow we misconstrue

Cool formatting on this one, Robert. And the photo lends an evocative sense of being stuck between two worlds.

When I got to that last sentence with ‘purple pastages’ I felt very sad thinking about the build to that point. It was like the poem was working its way up to saying acceptance involved some self-trickery, or that there must be some self-deception in the act of learning to live. Maybe I’m off base and just reading my own something in to it.

Perhaps a more positive slant could be that flexibility in approaching understanding is important. Both for one’s own health and for peace. I don’t know. This one really made me think. I’ll keep thinking.

I really enjoy the way you pair photos with your poems. And the ponder factor of the words.

Such is the power of color and our perception or not. There can be bias, partiality and more or less focus on some. In the U.S. they associate a special color with a football team. It will be stuck in peopl's minds. It can even become feverish. I think you were describing some kind of color deficiency for certain one. Some people can't even see color. Amazing and you are too.

all along it was really purple:)
The subtle spectrum of where something begins and something else ends and how do we judge either. Always enjoy reading your perception Robert...

thanks John he, he, I have to be careful not to make tongue twisters!
I love the colour purple and all its hues of violets and lilacs. So taken am I by this colour that I wrote a poem about it and how it features in my life. For me purple is a clear colour and I see it as such. I felt in your lines Bunny that you do not always see in purple, it can merge into blues. I am left feeling that you look at things differently and that in my book is fine. We are all different, variety is the spice of life and each person is valued for their whole. I love this poem, and hope I have interpreted it along the lines you intended.

Oh! Robert.
This is a wonderful piece of a piece.
I like the colour mixture of this colourful poem. Its description of the transition of a man's mild mind from a state to a state that seems to showcase a different of state but really remain unchanged makes me keep pondering.

I like this piece and it's really a mind hacking type.

Thanks Kay don’t worry I got the colors right now at least....
It takes a bit of experience and a whole lot of self evaluation over years to realize things like this. The mind can get that grip a bit to tight and breaking free from those bonds is impossible until we have enough life under our belt to see the where the problem lies. Excellent reflective piece my friend.
