Memory and Impulse

the casting of runes
awakens a subtle remembrance
a faint recording in substrate

the impulse to organize is unrelenting
to name to define
becomes an effort to dominate

    Nice write! Interesting way to put it - you can't dominate that which you can't define. I guess that's the gist of human existence.

    Today is the start of a new month and a new week. I am starting to read what looks to be some exceptional writing this morning. So glad I was able to read yours Mark. Love, Carol
