Posted in Poems - A Collection of Expressions


Crisp little black lines,

On a stark white page,

Unseeing, unfeeling,

Dormant they lie,

As the brown leaves on grey pavements.


Lithe fingers touch silent strings,

Vibrations fill the air,

Lines transfigured to notes,

Dashes and dots turn to sound,

Melody rises to meet the emptiness.


Tiny blobs fall free,

Unrestrained flight,

Onto sheets of canvas,

Merging, mixing, moving,

In a dance of colors from mind to matter.


Curving wrinkles on smooth skin,

Warm and welcoming,

Holding without rope,

Touching heart and soul,

A portrait of color, sound, and vibrant lines.

      1. that is also a great perspective! and once the difference of nominalism is transcended 😉 there is hardly any difference between the pronouns ‘you’ and ‘I’, except in the subjective realm. Objectively ‘you’ and ‘I’ are same in the universal’s view. and I also believe that once one has healed the individual, it is possible to proceed with healing the collective, so now I am self-serving my earlier self-serving 😀

      2. There is no longer debate than the ones to be had on Rhetoric, though Language comes a close second. 😀
        The problem with the universal view is that it depends on history, which itself is biased and self-serving. Take for example, the bloody history of Thanksgiving and the pomp with which it is celebrated today, propagating peace, of all things!
        The healing of the individual must take place therefore, apace with the healing of the collective. ‘We’ should replace the ‘I’ and ‘You’.
        And having now self-served a lot, we should just take a break and order in some take-out. 😀
