    As for "Lantern on the Water"(I don't want to discuss possible interpretations on the poem itself, to let people's initial read not be skewered; for those who first read comments before commenting lol) -- fire doesn't always only destroy....it also purifies. One of the messages/themes of the last line(and the poem itself), is that when our mind is purified into a higher reason, this will free our heart into a balance of reason and emotional heart-instinct. I wasn't going for complexity: follow our hearts :)

    Ok, these are actually 3 separate poems of the same theme? I found your comment on "Lantern on the Water", a bit intriguing. Are you implying that you are beyond the constraints of understanding, or the need to understand? Because if so, good for you!

    I guess I was implying that ...LOL...I might be beyond the need to understand....which further implies....that it was none of my business. Actually, Sweetie, I just wasn't sure what you were going for, but as soon as you mentioned fire's ability to purify...a bell went off in my head, and I said, Ah-Ha! Love and hugs, catie :)

    Hullo, Catie. The first thought I had beyond the writing itself, was I found myself contemplating why this poem is posted in three parts. No biggie....simply sharing my initial thoughts. The theme is timely for me. I found myself in agreement with your message(I have a biased filter when it comes to certain symbolic religious archetypes -- because everything is a matter of perception -- and the "He" factor. But hey, that's just me). Great message! Kudos :)
