You take me back to being a child, living the moment. After experience and learning the moment is filtered. I love egrets. When I lived in Kansas, an egret visited the lake behind our house every year. Seeing that egret gave me pleasure just as your poem does. - Jim
I felt dying love, heart wrenching but in a beautiful way.
You have left it open for the reader to place their views in betweens you have carefully crafted.
Everything fades in time as the circle is continuous.
I think you've captured a bit of the sadness inherent in every moment, how it ceases to be, is ever-changing. Maybe it's not the most enlightened view to be sad about it all. Maybe we should instead be embracing it, like the dalai lama says, getting rid of essentialism and embracing change. Or maybe that's something else entirely. Either way I feel like you have to acknowledge the sadness, whether one decides to move on or not. And maybe it's not sad or maybe it is. Maybe accepting that it's sad is all that's necessary. Maybe knowing is the door to sadness and happiness too. Maybe this isn't the only way to know the world. I dunno.
So, we're all going to hell in a hand basket. This has been a complaint amongst civilized people since time immemorial. While we're pre-agrarian on the voyeur better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick I farmers wives. It's a sad and seemingly never ending story of decadence and debauchery, the people become secondary and social contiguity becomes mislead. mindless automatons are easier to control than belligerent anarchists. Personally I don't hardly understand how the individual rights of american constitutional fortitude have gotten us this far. There's definitely to much graft and fraud in government so we need to lose our rights. Consider what social media was to Libya and Egypt, Thats why the Chinese inhibit. I however of the ramifications of all these things don't give up. I don't know why you say good-by I say hello. Lets all get into some pandemic phatic futurity fatidics. Prolific profuseness daunts, especially when it's profound. Like get down!!!
