tone poem:  shaded light

lakemirrored sky
fisherman set dreaming
midst wisped fog

bright in the misty
flawed refractions
of pure light.

Oops, I forgot to add; I’ll give it a rest for ‘a bit’.  Much of this poetry is exactly a breakdown of “Different View”.  The difference is in mode.  The “assumption” is that language is a direct barrier to the perception of reality.


*No discussions of reality here. …
