A Clarification

Listen to poem:
*AUDIO, plus a, Video of A Clarification by YouTube. "Let us shine and not burn," by Elle Casey A Clarification Conceived onsets by one's subjective state, Clueless inceptions nebulously grow, A mindless blind mute moves, rousing its fate, Godsend occasion leaves the dark to glow. Sparks the light of life mimic frames of minds, Intricacies of distinctions arcane, Emotions indulge past regret unwinds, Scattered, detached, night candle burns the stain. Shatter separateness as divisive, Conceived borders we being inherits, Emphases realized as decisive, Everyone shares their respective merits. Douse not our embers, but keep strong our flame, Warm the blaze to a glow from whence we came. 2022 November 21 *5thPlace* A BRIAN STRAND PREMIERE CHOICE ~~Brian Strand: 2022 November 25 RZ & HMS.

Aloha! William, oh I can just see those tourists running up the hills to get the best selfies. I hear a 2nd volcano has now erupted. Thank you for filling me in. Stay safe, ~Anaya

100+ tremors daily since it started off on Sunday, Anaya, with fingering lava flows filling up pocket holes making its descent, slow, nonetheless, an influx of interisland tourists traded their sandy beaches for our glowing mountain. The locals are filling up the emptied added flights flown here, and flying anywhere away from their island home. Anyhow, thanks a bunch my friend, Aloha William

Sparks the light of life mimic frames of minds, Intricacies of distinctions arcane. This is really a wonderful sonnet, William. Very well written, and the topic that was picked is also quite fitting. I also watched the accompanying video, and both the music and the subject matter left an impression on me. I am grateful that you have shared this treasure.
