Mind As A Book

Vintage Words


Any media will serve: paper, air,

thought. Whether poets lurk 

in shadow or sun, mind to mind 

works as well as any air born signal 

or open eye orifice.


The book is about synaptic firings,
about being readably translated,
and transcendent, but minds work
otherwards. Minds work the way

the ideator wills. Sometimes

the book needs a severe edit is all.


Most media is subservient. Wink,

gesture, and pause when writers hover

in winter drift shivering or seek shade

to cool and shed heat with a mind  

remembering temperature risings

and fallings.


The book is a fantasy for open thinkers

who adore the notion that all things

summon possibilities. Poets carry

such books around in their pockets.

The book is an atlas to places the mind

will never visit but loves to dream about.

So elegantly spoken Lady

So elegantly spoken Lady A.
My mind bends and warps to try and keep up with your wisdom and understanding.
Sadly so many still prefer scripted reality over free imagination on the breeze.

"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." R.W.E.

Ain't It The Truth!

To prefer the scripted version is a diminishment, a failure to have a meeting of the minds with any idea. On the breeze, I like that . . . it is a happy thought and I needed one today. It is where I should be living instead of in so many scripted spaces that make me wing heavy. Thanks one whole lot. You helped me. ~~~~~~~~~ Lady A
