Mystified

“Drifting, drifting,
what am I more than
A single gull
between earth and sky?”

– fr. Night Thoughts Afloat,
Du Fu (712 – 770), Chinese poet.

 

“When we remember that we are all mad,
the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.”

– attributed to Mark Twain (1835 – 1910), U.S. writer

 

MYSTIFIED
(Confused! or mad?)

(When goblins of angst upon the psyche play
The mind, to psychosis is helpless prey.)

brazen breeze blowing
billowed bubbles of banality –

bellows beckon from baffling depths
of bemused, bewildered mind:
so perplexed, a puzzled psyche
struggles anew to renew sinewy
strength

like ice thawing slowly…

– between
banality and originality
is mentality.

– between
amused and bemused
is confused.
