I Speak, but ne’er say a word.

 

To paraphrase something I read recently:  There is no substitute for the perfect word. The right word does not suffice. Thus, a poem is never finished, merely abandoned.

As I grow, I try to write and express things in various ways. My latest attempt is below.

 

Write everything like it is your Magnum Opus


Nebula


A canvas, abstractly concrete in glade of my dreams.

Stark , white. Like Mab on Mid Summer’s Eve

Thoughts and expression Coalesced,

Resplendent like height of summers fecundity

My imagination, a portal within these pallium halls.

Porcelain pylons stand guard over my Palette.

Scarlet, with words. I paint

My thoughts, a cavalcade of ideate sentences

My personality, ambulates betwixt parentheses

My soul, I place upon a pedestal of words.

The most austere of glances, sets it alight.

In the throes of passion, I watch as it burns.

I leave my passing ,as naught but smoldering embers on a page.

I was here. I was alive. To live, love, laugh and hate.

Energy harnessed to aesthetically permutate.

Within this canvas, upon these pages

I carve my effigy. I immortalise myself here.

With every movement of my wrist,

With every palpitating beat of my art.

Life, now has meaning.

Ciao!

Why Ask Questions?

There is an age old question, that I always found intriguing. A question I must admit, though intriguing, I never quit understood.

I understood that it creates an awareness that there is order to things. A place for everything and everything in its place.

But not the logic of asking the question in the first place – I thought the answer fairly obvious. Making the question clearly rhetorical in nature.

The question is: What came first, the Chicken, or the Egg?

On a very subconscious level, I would presume we all have an idea of the process of things. A process, which would indeed make this question irrelevant.

The issue, is that a part of the equation is missing from the question. There are – or should be – three pivotal points in that equation.

First: The Chicken

Second: The Progenitor – in this case the Cockerel.

The results: The Egg

I shall endeavour to shed some light on where I am going with this  questions on whether or not the Chicken or the Egg came first.

It should be obvious, the one that came first must have been the Cock – erel. A Cockerel is what is known in layman’s terms as a Rooster.

While there are many animals in nature that produce asexually – I say many ,but I know none. However, I know, poultry is not among that subset of animals.

Based on this I would assume there must be a chicken and a cockerel to create and egg. You may find this to be crude. The questions is: can you disagree with my conclusion?

Mind you, I never arrived at this conclusion on my own. My aunt , a very demure woman. Had a T-shirt which engineered my arriving at this obviously very “profound” answer.

The T-shirt read: THE BIGGER THE COCK.. THE BRIGHTER THE MORNING.

If you have ever been in a rural area that had a Cockerel. You would have noted their obstreperous nature early in the morning.

However, their obstreperousness has nothing to do with what was on that T-shirt.

If you cannot figure out what it means, or how it led me to this point. You are obviously too young to be reading this.
