It was meant as a compliment, Fred :) I like Wittgenstein - patent nonsense makes philosophical theories appear reasonable. I suppose I bridged my delighted amusement at your poem in a nonsensical way.

Fred's aim is to teach us to pass from a piece of disguised nonsense to something that is patent nonsense ;)

I believe it was Benjamin Franklin who said that those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. Lincoln said pretty much the same: those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. I read Nelson Mandela's Long Walk to Freed...

Ravings of a Frenzied Heart

Irresistible temptation – Yield to and be won over by oblivion.

You are the earthquake That rents my insubstantial earth, Altering the landscape into unnatura...

Thunder of Departure

During the night the storm arrived Lightning streaked through the sky Pelting of deafening red-hot gushes Stealing the last light from my eyes Flickers designed in the firmament Silence descended within bedlam Its roar fierce and furious as a tiger Lost soul locked in a gilded cage The demon, with ...

Upon My Shadow

I impose upon my shadow to leave me at last It is she that anchors me still to the earth Akin to a black and faint presentiment That accompanies me, present even at night And now I fly – free I soar over the smoking flues Of the many and diverse structures by me built Black and white clouds I trave...
