overhead sun marks
 1
the day for you
 2
 
 
shadows elsewhere show
 3
the spot of your return as you
 4
turn away from your own
 5
 
 
nothing in your hands
 6
head light as the lightness felt by
 7
your erect manifestation
 8
 
 
being
 9
 
 
so close to the ground
 10
the fabric of thought stretched
 11
ever so thinly thinking you
 12
could do it
 13
 
 
eying forcibly the blinding
 14
clarity of your crescendo
 15
on the underside
 16
 
 
with the skies and the earth
 17
having only you to protect in
 18
between
 19
 
 
their harsh realities reduced to
 20
a single circumstance called
 21
 
 
existence
 22
 
 
otherwise
 23
known
 24
to be
 25
 
 
YOU
 26
 
 
dumbed by the thought of it

Hey Fractaliscious -- I fave'd it as I meant to get back to the ideas unravelle'd in this piece -- I made a Sun dial with Egyption Icons I got from a Toy store -- it's presently half past the pyramids nearing Isis -- you've unravelled the urge we are as Nature's surge to manifestation oin L10 through 26 giving the mind set as the end note in L27 although 'dumbed' and 'awed' (odd) are synonymous here -- I'll comment some more shortly -- lunch is afoot

Line 9, "being,"
Line 12, "Thinking," 14, "blinding"

All inactive forms, I think if you could convert them to active verbs and possibly replace line 9 with some something stronger, this would be very good.

I'll save my rating for later, I think there are some word choice issues here as well, though on the whole I enjoyed the read.

hi, listen.

your kindness is relentless.
it's nice to be back and you're
one of the PC people i've missed.

see you around.

 — fractalcore

hi, technomancer.

thanks so much for your time and suggestions.
|9 is meant to mean 2 things and i don't know
what to do with all the other -ing words as of the
moment as i've been away from here for so long.

specifics would be most welcome.

Cool poem.  Though me thinks you've a typo*  (eyeing) line 14.  Otherwise, nice read.
 — JKWeb

p.s. Do you need 'their' in line 20?  jus' wonderin'
 — JKWeb

thanks for the read, mr JKWebster sir.

i think 'their' refers to the skies' and the earth's
harsh realities and is used to denote/mark the
extremes of whatever harsh realities there are;
it's also a slight nod at heaven and hell.

the cool thing about eyeing and eying is that they
make safe room for pseudo-misspellings, hehe.

glad you enjoyed this piece.
