Two Yogis


Two yogis:
one, understanding,
thinks of good,
realizes place;
one, realizing,
thinks of good,
understands place.

Both thinking good,
both realize and understand,
commonality of place.

    the word esoteric, probably a word i've NEVER used in my lifetime, popped into my head concerning this poem after my second reading of it. hmmm? i googled it and, yes, i think, to me, this poem is esoteric and i'm not one who understands it clearly, even after squinting to read the tiny, light-colored punctuation marks on my reduced-size screen. thanks for sharing, and for the punctuation marks.

    you wouldn't be referring to yogi bear and yogi berra, . WOULD YOU? ? ? :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
