Perspective Of A Widow -

The undressed truth
of her opinion
was more luminous than a palm full
of Persian pearls,

the silly insanity
of her wavering romance was too flagitious
and uncanny
for the engineers
of reality's dialogue,

her and I indulged in a suspicion of Reason
and she spoke,
" Waltzing does the crooked shadow,
rectifying does the balance
of the prudent orchestra;
harmonizing does the baffling chorus
of courteous belief ", says she,
" disgusted is the composer
of tragic complexity and sympathetic gesture ",

I commented but was soon corrected
by her primordial wisdom,
the movement of my mangled objection
was at a halt,as she detailed,

" Falling is the lesuire
to a confused spirit,
jealousy is the mobilization
of an infatuated curiosity,
but what is difficult to apprehend
is the still composure
of a natural gift,
which yeilds to no fault,
the immaculate reflection
of Passion -

J.A.B.

    The woman mirrors your philosophical nature, JAB!!!(cool initials you have) You always make interesting comments to me, Yes, indeed I still have the attitude of a very young person. I don't look old but I feel it more and more in my 56 year old bones!!!

    A deep, thoughtful and soulful write, Justin! She no sounds like a femme fatale to me, Justin. "An infatuated curiousity" might feed something she already knew, though still she sought truth and honesty? Perhaps an atonement, redemption, thus a liberation? You've such a wise and curious mind, Justin!:) Best wishes, Mikki

    Have enjoyed the intricate lines and reasoning as far as I could make them out Justin; I think this is a little outside of my line of thinking "however I see it is a fine piece" thank you for your valued comments..)
