  • Hi! :-)

I sat to think
and could not
but in partial bursts
that I could barely
hold on to.

I received an image.
It made its impression
in my mind
and lasted for three seconds.

I wrote it as a poem,
as the inside of paper folded,
before it's turned to chaff.

I wonder by its whiff
if one could understand.

The letter kills but The Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6

Non-ambiguity and non-contradiction are one sided and thus unsuited to express the incomprehensible. -Jung

  • It seems so important now but you will get over.

Brevity and depth.

Reading it is a journey where you go though some ground and end up at a place you were not at the beginning.

The first stanza very much comes to you in partial bursts, the second is like an image and can be describe with the word "precision", the third is very sweet poetry, and the final ties it all up in surrealism.
