Reason Accomplishes Nothing

but jumps o'er hurdles or
runs like turtles if need be
just like that -- just!

the conundrum is that we gotta have a reasonable process to get around this place yet not utilize the Left Brain as the primary voice of reason without the unreasonable and Poetic Right Brain la la laughing in awe and wonder -- the Poet often considers the Pome as a dynamic interplay to their own evolutionary process and the forces of change in and around them -- from an irrational Poetic view sHe is the pome in process whereby the Pen becomes like an apPENdage spilling out blood, sweat and moaning meanings from despair to wonder without any goal; as such they've become the Natural surge of wave and Sea that pumps the heart of living life and makes them grow with blush and bliss the only goal, no sweeter kiss than this -- the Right Brain can't tell the difference between Time and Space the Left Brain can't tell the difference between now:here

This reminds me of when I used to write shitty poetry. Thank goodness I've evolved. 10/10

a usual delight to have your words of light,
AlchemiA dear sir. the left and right are an
essential requirement for centering and only
when these two operate simultaneously can
balance be attained, no matter the distinct
differences between them and the nuisance
in their individualities.

we're always left with the right to choose though
and we reason with our Self in the end.

thanks for stopping by.

does a leap of faith amount to anything?
i believe so

hi, technomancer.

run like turtles if need be, i think so...

hi, unknown.

i think leap of faith is simply reason in it's almost purest form
and it definitely amounts to a great deal of something which
can keep most people sane for a significantly long period.

i don't think i understand what "coherent" means any longer
but thank you for your kindness.

i've always liked how you can't add a word to your poems. they stand on their own.

good strategy.
 — listen

hi, listen.

i'd say they always stand on a single leg
but sustain the posture long enough.

thank you for always stopping by.
