Observable And Personal Détente - Poem by Michael Walkerjohn

Finding the Source

wall of gold reformed
my own projection cornered
in a deep absence

A Truth's Construct

thought freed gravity
once locked within a mind's core
transparency earned

In Self Respect

strength conquers regret
past confusions poisonous hold
the wind's mill reborn

Cosmic Conscience

forgotten patience
reformed by distant terror
energizes love

Karma's Clue

paradox is lost
when energy so fuses
the soul with the mind

Chaotic Imaging's Forte

stars form from spinning
in anger and chaos churned
such a beauty borne

Self-Projection

challenge each lesson
rise above the gloss teachings
of all others

Topic(s) of this poem: absence, beauty, challenges, patience, self reflection , soul, thought

Form: Senryu

IAM pleased that you have visited here and have taken to this way of sharing our combined thoughts and works... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two

    Astonishing, Michael.Some thing like that I tried in my ''My own walls too''. A thoughtfull, sensitive inside dive. (Report)Reply

    Michael Walkerjohn(3/7/2016 10:49:00 PM)

    Aloha Dimitrios...

    I thank you kind Sir... for having a look, read, and making these most positive comments... IAM working on several projects in the kitchen of words at the same time just now... This little page of thoughts was one that came out very well. And IAM fortunate to have experienced the worth of Jenn, before beginning to develop the thoughts that came through and resulted in this write... And I have visited your wall... it is just now being moved to the side burner... so I can watch it simmer... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
