Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Self Explanatory - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Once a learned young man named John
asked a serious question, an earnest question,
with no attempt at humour, or to string me along.

And the questions were?
‘How do you write like that?
How do you find the titles? ’

The reply. ‘I think like that.’
His reply. ‘No one thinks like that.’

An answer beyond his belief system.
An answer he could not reconcile accept.

Easier to believe own belief systems
than search mind expand limited horizons.

Really was this reply
in truth so hard to accept?

‘If I do not think like that
how could I write like that? ’
