THE FILTER (metaphysical)


gallantly ineffective

that muse a mystic's bark

tempered like some folly

upon a miser's stock

wishes in grumbled few

flap about the mind's eye

elevated and confused

weary and leery to be gagged

in words

the soul's language is so very difficult

to translate

vision is a hiarchy

brought to its knees

through the polluted filter

of such a limited thing

as the human mind

and this is the constant case

of all the poetry

that loiters in me

ever so stubbornly

My view,write what you think and feel, you answer the calling for yourself first, what follows follows..
