In Other Words


                   from now on, although it may not worth the effort,
                   unmask your bivalence, predict how your anger will express itself,
                   convert your unfulfilled ambitions and your famished experiences in 
                   knowledge by acquaintance; desires and dreams
                   yield enough fantasies to meet all
                   our needs: imagination and entertainment…
                   use them as you know, and find my hidden wish and yourself.

    Sorry Mr. O this one befuddled me..I know you had something to say and an important something but to who? it can felt universally but not is a complex task set out for a specific person and I think you would need to be that person to GET THIS..[also it feels like it's in the wrong it wants to be something else? Teranzella or pantoume or SESTINA!!Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    Beautiful sketch of the philosophy of life and converting them in knowledge by acquaintance. Strangely, on the one hand, you have captured the essence of life on the other hand; your faith in dreams is so strong. I remember a quote ' If you can dream it, you can achieve it'. A creative write. And many thanks for your comments on my new form of Poetry 'Kawaali'. Love and best wishes..Ravindra...Ruben Ortellao

    Oh boy a new word, I'm looking it up now! bivalence hmmm (Philosophy / Logic) Logic Philosophy the semantic principle that there are exactly two truth values, so that every meaningful statement is either true or false Compare many-valued logic..good one!!Personally I don't believe in this LOL..anyway thanks so much for faving my verse & always being nice & kind! Light & Love

    Enjoyed reading your work this ...What they say about living in air castles? It is wonderful to have those dreams and some do come true but of course some are only dreams like watching a field of Daisies for eons...Thanks for stopping by with your kind comments...Sara

    Your poems are always a delight to read, Ruben..sometimes dreams become reality if you want it bad enough. In the meantime dreams do least that's how I look at it my friend..Peace, Audrey

    Ruben, before I comment on your poetry, I didn't mean that less than 31 syllables is bad for a tanka entry! Wot I mean, is if the syllables of an entry become close to that of a senryu/haiku....that is too little.

    Dreams are enough till one start living the dreams. .its all about clever choices in other words. .as the wise owl says:)in other words,tmfs!Celene.
