Random Poem:

Why can't I call you Berlynn?
MattPat

Don't know
 1
 
 
A poet is confused, that this is a dream
 2
without hesitation satisfied with spontaneity, but you are dissatisfied and I am dissatisfied
 3
 
 
We are a ramble
 4
 
 
Thank will for this
 5
 
 
 
 
Give me one second to consider you, to sum you up;
 6
 
 
how in words cupid describes Venus to her self
 7
 
 
if he is a part of her quintessential feminine, if she is god.
 8
 
 
 
 
A poetry of life composed in the scenery. Holons of the goddess nature, the fifth element,
 9
 
 
Composed of the sixth consciousness element. So many elements integrating
 10
 
 
so many words discovered, a life story, sharing love and gratitude.
 11
 
 
 
 
 
 
My landscape is your yes eyes smile and I am all enthusiastic. Laugh and smile with me about love in a philosophy without communion?
 12
 
 
 
 
 
 
The poets enlightenment is not a sudden illumination, but a weight lightened by some realization of reality's truer depth than personhood.
 13
 
 
The self then becomes a holon, both individual and whole, and at the same time composed of a greater network of life on this planet.  
 14
 
 
The discovery of life as a single organism
 15
 
 
 
 
 
 
That discovery then becomes a holon and is not a sudden illumination,
 16
 
 
not a single organism but a singularity
 17
 
 
come to me, be resplendent in your uniqueness and complexity, both symptoms of beauty.
 18
 
 
 
 
 
 
In truth, and all goodness, beauty is the beholder
 19
 
 
a trait of illumination, such as the charm of pretty things  
 20
 
 
to youth and to imagination, and to strange happenings in your mind
 21
 
 
Have fun with them, have fun with me, do nothing, sleep, away.
 22
