Paean Reverie

Paean Reverie

A Poem by S.S.P.
"

... wanted to write something a little more "positive" than my usual and found a strange little hippie that hides in my hateful heart. 7/6/09 whirled peas and birkenstocks dude.

"

 too many hide in the dim of dead eyes

afraid ...

that we might find each other kind

willing

wanting

free of philosophic fraud and hoary fallacies

perpetuated

provoked

by fathers fore

dour distillations

of illusive lives imbibed

 

let us retain (or refurbish)

the wide-eyed joys and jaunty nature

of our initiation

lift our heads to see the eyes of ourselves

hand to hand

the we in me

the I in you

withering to wise.

Ahh...I love it! Of course, I love all your work. But, it's good that you are seeing that we are not made all of one thing or another. This shows your complexity and your range, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It's definitely going in my favorites! Well Done!

I enjoy this piece because it touches on the subtelties of human nature.
Us naturally being afraid and leading to the alienation of others in our everyday life.

Masterfully writte, really enjoyed it

Throwing off the cloak of what came before and being ourselves. I like it. Well done.
