Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Imitated Life Grasped Scenarios


why do so many
people copy imitate
fashions friends

whatever is trending?

probably for host many
reasons peer pressures
to fit feel sense belonging?

children learn by copying
drawing repeating acting
multiple forms of imitating

many write down copies

of life grasped scenarios
words that inspire infantile minds
songs pantomime experiences

influences influences attitudes teaching

parental behaviour modeling
misbehaviour temper tantrums scolding
social values norms rewarding

today often trends electronically copying

has someone copied your look work styles?

to be imitated is a form of praise
in X generation many influences
most just seek trendy differences

it takes infinitely longer to know self
to develop knowledge of essential self
unique souls perpetuate shades of self

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
