Illusion Ii

Beauty is what by clarity of vision
more we learn greater we know truth
as we read history as mirrored by facts
yet time seems paradox in hand by realty....
.
yet rain is indebted to clouds
mystery dissipates by illusion
reason never defies riffs of truth
i am as i am by commiseration

ocean is beyond reach of moon
horizon befuddles in silhouettes
tide and ebb reason to reason
all earthly riffle by rise and fall

love of Florence ramifies by colors
do we ever judge our own strength?
every bits of raves up redounds
rainbow rills on illusion by extermination

    your words make it sound more like an illusion... clever usage of words, fulfilling the concept of an illsuion.

    Paradox alias illusion! ?
    Reality virtually may appear as illusion.
    In Vedantic concept all are but illusion [delusion] except Bhraman.

    Certainly makes one think; but, just as a quick response - though quick is not entirely at all appropriate I know - for me, the crux of the whole poem lies in the sentence Ocean is beyond reach of moon. Yes and no. True and false. In belief we can be conscious of what we believe to be true, and even hold onto this, but only the real truth (perhaps beyond belief) is really there, and will last. I am not clear on this but these certainly are words that predispose to hard thinking,

    you got the talent to put light on the greatest questions of thinking... your words bring us into a moment of doubt, a minute of reflection, I like when I find some kind of work...thanks for the invitation!

    all of your poetry is driven by deep philosiphical reflections. your metaphors used to touch on the topics of traversing time and space, humanity, religion, true beauty created by nature, the meaning of our lives and so much more that weighs upon the intellectual human mind. some hidden by illusions or the minds eye.
    ocean is beyond reach of moon
    horizon befuddles in silhouettes
    tide and ebb reason to reason
    all earthly riffle by rise and fall
    You have succsessfully put illusion into your deepths of thinking. i think that if someone without much self-reflection or the yearning to understand something higher than thier intellect read this they would simply skip right over it not thinking twice about trying to understand that this poem has a true meaning and leaving no comment because they don't understand the meaning, but someone with higher level of thinking will read it and understand your metaphors and elegant style of writing. and would walk away not only pondering your words but taking a piece of your ideals with them to stay, the meanings hidden behind the illusion of your words are deep and touching. once again a beautiful, meaningful piece. kudos my friend.

    SCIENCE EXAMINES AND PUTS THINGS IN BALANCE AND UNRAVELS THE UNKNOWNS THAT ABOUND. NOTHING IS FINAL, THE ABSOLUTE ANSWER, BUT THE MORE RESEARCH, THE MORE BRAINS EXPLORING WITH AN OPEN MIND, NO REPRESSIIONS OR LIMITED THINKING, WE MOVE SLOWLY BUT SURELY TOWARD UNRAVELING THE MAGNIFICENT MYSTERIES IN THE UNIVERSE. THIS WAS A PLEASURE TO READ. THANK YOU.

    Lovely very lovely! You write in metaphors and comparisons. You make it so intelligent but beuatiful at the same time. A smart person could come through and read it and gain a bit of information. Though even if a less intelligent person swept through he would stil walk away from it knowing more still.

    The imagery to is hard to compare your metaphors are loaded with them. As soon as you said, 'Beauty is what by clarity of vision' I knew I would thuroughly enjoy it. It is a master piece in it's own pride.
