Oddly Familiar

Deja vu Always without expectation, some instinct prevails, opening with uncanny coincidence.... Ambiguous recollections... earmarking telltale, immediate recognition Overshadowing reality, ... unleashing mysterious awareness What explains the intriguing familiarity, obscuring conventional understanding? With a tangible energy pulsing into places of the unconscious present, a look, emotion, memory, inkling, hovers over, with unmistakable similarity, and the experience, has intriguing, quite obtuse conclusions, unaccountable happenings....abstract, without explanation, strangely insightful, not obvious, somewhat undefined While, all strange emotions will intrigue the orthodox, Fascination undermines reason...alluring me, enthusiastically to invite the offered baffling uncertainty Here's a simple experience, maybe intuition's memory, outside the usual Mysterious acquaintance without explanation Be intrigued.... recognize omnipresence which unravels rigid assumptions......while entertaining the imagination This overwhelms convention. Unlike the antiquated, let's embrace these incredulous things of life, .......unexplored

    Oh wow Carrie-- this is a stunner-- In a span of 2 days, this is the second entry for David's contest that impressed me-- You tackled an intriguing topic and did amazing with it! This I hope places way up high! For the title though, I think David was asking for a vowel/consonant? Two words in vow/con-- so maybe it would be best to change your title? I hope you read this before he judges and that David isn't strict with the title in case you don't read this right away! Awesome write!

    "Always without expectation." - really needing no definition or conclusion. Your piece strikes the mysterious inner chord - a part of life's consciousness. I will shut up. You've said it so well. Love, daver
