High Resolution

A Poem by James Paulin

 

source of light disperse color white

existence bears significance

set free in embryonic sea

prenatal stare checks or compares

infancy of dependency

pastels unfold then brightly bold

wheels spin and big questions begin

eyes receive yet thoughts perceive

truth rings right in pure insight

just now succumbs as rashness numbs

views run wide as values collide

love unites with spiritual light

colors merge, layer and surge…black

i like the poem a lot, but i think the title does not do justice to the subject matter. the title makes it sound like an airy summertime piece and the poem has so much more value to it and deserves a stronger title that is reflective of what you are saying.

This poem should either be well-thought or from the loon part of the mind. The imagery are, I'd say, jagged at places. The meaning is quite not evident too. Maybe they are instances from your life, maybe someone who has experienced them will understand. =) Keep writing.

I'm sure that there is some deep meaning to this poem, however I'm struggling to work out exactly what it is. Despite that, I still like the imagery, and feel the title is quite appropriate as it reflects the use of colour throughout the poem.

This poem has the great merit of profound simplicity. I read this as Life from the beginning to the end. If that interpretation is correct, you are very clear without being trite.

Life summarised nicely, I like how black, normally the negative colour, is shown in a positive light...
