Harvest of Mind

Harvest of Mind
               by Odin Roark

Acres of mirrors
Reflecting yesterdays upon today
Refracting wisdom’s tundra of experience
Into regret's abstract lessons.

How flexible
This mind of bendable energy,
Linking limbotic senses
Into a synaptic playground
Where one’s child-like recess plays perpetual.

Discovery beckons,
Hoeing brain’s porous marl 
Bearing not the sweat of work,
Rather seedling’s preparation,
The cultivation of pain and sorrow’s rich compost,
The irrigation of past years’ yield,
That foundation of trial and error’s natural reward.

As each day's light finds horizon’s solace,
We slumber into mind’s picturesque growth, 
Participating in collage-dreams,
Challenging synaptic connections
Smiling or crying,
Winning or losing,
We either concede as spectator
Or become a player,
A harvester of continuance,
The perpetuation of cognition’s daily bread.


‘Tis wondrous property we carry about.
Respected, it thrives.
Neglected, it weeds.

But a fossil-in-the-making.

    Odin, this is a masterful work you have put together. It is a pleasure to read it twice and muse on it further !
