Red Amaryllis

A true follower of the pink blush one

She reddened with vermillion veins

Every line a verse written on velvet flames

She trumpets her heart out

In silence

Hyacinths in white

Spring queens blush

In purple dreams

Want to be daffodils

Yet those never multiply

Their scent as the gliders

That reach for light

Chartreuse to cream

Fragrant spring

SAYING – 3rd

 

When the windfall of pain

Seizes and paralyses the body

A storm of thoughts unforeseen

Flood and grace the soul in turn

Understanding

Understanding

 

You hear when you listen. You have to listen to understand. There is a focus needed, an active impulse to acknowledge.

Words want to be heard. Babble may be overheard. You can listen to both, yet personal communication starts in listening to words of a counterpart. You might be stimulated by listening to chatter. Nevertheless, you are truly seen by someone listening to what you wanted to make heard.

You are listening to someone you see or picture in your mind. You are listened to by someone who cares whether you are seen or by virtual communication.

In true understanding we carry a picture of our vis-à-vis in our soul.

Philosophical exploration

Explore, not exploit! Admire new discoveries, let them be, for the desire to have might destroy them. We are on a timeline that will be terminated by the unknown. We decide who we will be in the time being. We have what we have as long as we live. We are more than that. Explorers of the mind, wayfarers of the soul. Our endeavour is enriched by companionship, kinship and belonging. To ride the waves of the seas is to be shared and noted. To trek towards farther shores, jungles, deserts, riches and rocks is an ancient pilgrimage. It is meant to enrich the horizon of the wanderer.
