Now Begin ...

Now Begin ...

A Poem by KWP

enter without entering 

pitch a tentless tent 

spark a fire but no flames 

set your billy to boil without water

add your tea without leaves


strip your intentions 

loosen your culture, leave it behind 

relinquish acquired ‘knowledge’ 

siphon away perception

strip yourself bare 

naked outside, 

inside, 

inside-out 

empty, light, all of it light ….


now begin

Gee
To busy, bills to pay, a daughter to raise, mother to look after,( and mother in law)
How nice would it be to just say " f**k it" and upsticks, live for 6 months, see the world, experience different cultures.
Like many though, I'll probably be echoing these wishes off the inside of my casket.
Good morning KWP

I interpreted this poem as a necessity for simplicity. I agree that we all need to strip the frivolous things away and learn the beauty of natural soul. Very well written and thought provoking!

I absolutely loved the followed lines:

siphon away perception
strip yourself bare
naked outside,
inside,
inside-out

I think what you meant is this is what we should all do before we sit down to write? This is how I have interpreted the poem.

I enjoyed your thoughts. Good to have little and enjoy the gift of the outdoors. Would be a better world, if we needed less. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

we take so many precautions we forget to live...this is about taking chances, stripping to just the dare..and taking it.

It is hard to lay down preconceived ideas and look at something old with a fresh approach, I love the simplicity and honest feel of this.
