Plateau [S]peak 1378 Current Version


Joyful imagination here would seek
Self-confidence, serenity, at last
Creating through a wonder word world fast
Karmic fusion, inner mind may speak
Intensely, neither verbally nor weak.
Expectations high were, in the past,
Countered by betrayal, world which vast
Appeared less trusting, somehow sprang a leak.
Now self-awareness reaches plateau peak.
Need for self-trust, priority forecast,
Combining choice with voice, full sails, strong mast,
Heart high held here hopes harmony. Hurt bleak
fades as fresh scope prepares peace, future fair.
Serenity spreads with spring, warms everywhere.

Joy and imagination here would seek
Attainment and serenity, at last
Creating through a wonder word world fast
Karmic fusion where two minds may speak
Intensely, neither verbally nor weak.
Expectations high were, in the past,
Countered by betrayal, world which vast
Had seemed became less trusting, sprang a leak,
Although awareness reached fresh plateau peak.
Need for self-trust, priority forecast,
Combining choice with voice, full sails, strong mast,
Heart high held here hopes harmony. Hurt bleak
At present fades preparing future fair,
New blossom comes with spring, warms everywhere.

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
