Two-Dimensional Circle

Within the realms of space
Exist the pearly lines of logic,
Foreboding, tremendously woven like lace
With fiery finesse and a flashing flicker.

From elegant earth, cyclopean stars
Are rendered so picayune,
We see them only as circles and bars
Adorning the sky, so meticulously strewn.

But the human mind
Does not need to look beyond
The two-dimensions we see to find
Amusement. Sorry Armstrong.

The blazing cataclysmic beauty
Is wasted on our feeble temperament.
Squandered almost deliberately
Without further acknowledgment.

And the result of this treachery
Is the reason our lives are so dull.
We morph all we see, making it blurry.
Leaving only a 2-D circle.

And yet, even with this simple silhouette,
We bask in beautiful bundles of bliss.
Ironically enough, we call it infinite
Like that of space, a more infinite abyss.

    It is said that we humans use only a small fraction of our brains. That is a mystery to me. Could it be that we simply need to seek ways to expand our reality; that it would be available to us if we tried alternate ways to tap into the unused matter? I'm sure lots of jokes can be made of what I just said, but it's something I've often thought about and your poem just brought it once again to mind. I enjoyed this thought-provoking write, Gael.
