I offer this for your respected opinion :- After meditating I felt an urge to write. A bridge between what I imagine is my higher consciousness and lower conscious was made.

Living


All that can be seen is not known,
All that is known can not be seen,

All that the future holds is not known,
All that is known is not of the future,

All that is of the past is gone,
All that has gone has become now,

All that life is must die,
All that is dead gave meaning to life,

All that are asleep are not awake to know they are dreaming,
All that are dreaming are not living

My thanks again Paul for your contribution.

You write that “a bridge between what I imagine is my higher consciousness and lower consciousness was made”.

If it was possible to introduce poems to each other then I would like to introduce your poem to other poems on this Forum - to John Guiney’s poem Union and also to the poems of Vera Korfioti, and in particular to The Within (as translated from the Greek by Michael Shepherd).

Welcome to the Forum.
