The Passing Drought - Poem by Aine Ni Leidhin

What you knew for yourself, integrate back
to automatic observation from contextual clues
in working out grey areas of personal experience
so poorly captured by computers unchecked

Appetite in its natural state constitute the essence
The years this has taken are nothing special at least
when contrasted with the ease of developing
your unique skill earned triumphant, endowed
with imaginative effects echoes Renaissanc

    It would be interesting to see how you would write this in a plain sentence, but, of course, that would not be poetry which the kind I like best is intriguing, not evident and demands investigation and discovery which I think was the whole point of the Renaissance. (Report) Reply

    write with a entity and openness
    in working out grey areas of personal experience
    so poorly captured by computers unchecked

    I 've always suspected these machines that manipulate data to the extent that they do, following lists of instructions, multiprocessing while multitasking -
    Our creation, our servants.

    Our servants can never quite capture the essence of what it takes to be human.
    Thanks so much for interesting read. Cal
