Love for it All

Love for it All

 

Every buzz has its own logic

and math I explained standing

in the rain beneath soft dripping

brugmansia trumpets and hard

jointed bamboo stalks

 

Only at depth do you see the gods

why they populated the emptiness

and gave human desires names like

Sex and Hunger and Want and Need

yesterday it came to light

 

the old coke fiend Freud was mistranslated

from the start It and I became Id and Ego

A small wind shakes the long bladed leaves

cold water flows down my spine

See how easy it is to be

rid of civilization

 

to return to

before the break

when It and I

were bound together

blind without each other

unnamed and unknown drunk

and shivering with love for it all.

Hey, Juris. Will you ever stop surprising me :)? This amazing piece proves your ability as a writer. The populated emptiness gives a perfect metaphor for the "shadows" of today, and always I would say.

 

In here you made very clever declaration:

 

cold water flows down my spine

See how easy it is to be

rid of civilization

 

And the rest of the poem doesn't stop to surprise the reader and to make him think...

 

Thank you for another exceptional read.

Hi DC,

 

Another brilliant work in which you weave the natural and the abstract to ponder on what drives human impulses - the search for meaning (gods), physical and emotional fulfillment and intellectual curiosity. I love the play on Freudian thought:

 

It and I became Id and Ego

 

 

Also

 

when It and I

were bound together

blind without each other

 

This seeking of answers under the brugmansia trumpets also known as the devil's trumpets seems to allude to another searching of answers under the Bodhi tree.

 

Is the poet being the devil's advocate?

 

 

This is one of my favorites:

 

unnamed and unknown drunk

and shivering with love for it all.

 

 

Great sonority throughout makes this a poem to savour.

 

 

Thank you.

"Love for it all" is evident in the characters' delve and immersion into the mysteries of the physical universe, Juris. I enjoyed the display and the joie de vivre in this one.
