Opuscule – A Poem

Confab With Me

She never expressed her thoughts
though she desired,
but never found the courage
to expose her soul
and then one day
with a timid voice
she recited an opuscule and a masterpiece was created for a lifetime

Prompt given by talented Manic Sylph

Space Between The Steps

Savvy Raj

Just like the sounds of music in the spaces between the notes, there is dancing in the spaces between the steps. It is only when we become aware of the value of the spaces between the thoughts that we can truly reflect, revel and live with ease through our lives.
The pinnacle of access to our realization of the creative entities at work would actually be in the silence, in the intentions, in an emotional journey of profound fulfilment. The trick is to find that point of the immense creative surge and be able to nurture it.
Rest and activity go together just as much as night and day… And like the yin and the yang, there must be pauses in between the breathes, inaction in between the action, which will heighten the clarity, purity, and the intensity of that which is evolving.

How would you feel?

Keep it alive

How would you feel

When you’re ignored

Facing rejection and

Forced to change yourself

Not likely, you say to me

But this is what people

Who are different from others

Are facing every day of their lives

This society of ours wants

Conformation from us all

Not honoring our differences

But expecting all of us to be the same

Now that I have spilled the beans

What remedy would you suggest

To make us more tolerant and inclusive

In response to the following prompts;

“No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it.”

Art of Quotation

“No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it. Where we live and who we live there with define the terms of our relationship to the world and to humanity. We thus come again to the paradox that one can become whole only by the responsible acceptance of one’s partiality.”

Wendell Berry, writer, quote from “The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry”, p.118, Counterpoint
