The faces of Duality

The faces of Duality What a strange and mysterious creature. The two, distorted faces of human nature. Are they given birth, deep within the subconscious ? Or are they a deliberate creation of the conscious ? What is there in one’s personality ? That makes their duality, their reality ! For those that play this troubling game, in the faces of the innocent, there is a name ! B. J. “A ” 2 June 5th 2015

Thank you Keith for “ Cleverly conceived and rendered... ”, “ a fascinating piece with superb couplet rhyming and flow ” such underserved praise. I say this because I just do, and know not the how’s and whys ???, for the technical aspects of writing elude my conscious awareness or any knowledge of these processes. All the best to you Keith, and may you and yours have a Grand Christmas and fantastic New Year. Bill .

on top of all this are days of cropping photos, pasting them to pages for the eighty first volume of my, auto biographical, biographical, pictorial, family history books, along with days upon days of answering emails and on and on and on it goes . I truly appreciate your concern “ Hope you're keeping well! ” for my wellbeing and know my Dear, that I hope that you are keeping well as well . Take good care and keep up the good work, with more gems like those you have created since I last read your poetry and congratulations on the gift you received from a secret admirer. By the way, How were you able – what process do you use to centre your last few poems ??? Being computer illiterate I have yet to figure it out . Bill .

Meetings with ArtsConnect, meetings to set up an Arts Association society and how to promote it so the city will fund some of our projects, meetings with the story telling Elders, workshops with Tri City Community Television, to learn scripting. producing, camara work etc., etc., involvement with Eagal Nation Productions, this involvement, a member and the owner of Eagle Nation Buffett / director of the production company are who inspired “ The faces of Duality ”, and so this lead to three days of playing a lawyer, by gmail, to defend myself against threats of being sued and the intimidation to have me bow down to her demands / orders,

Good Morning Yoshi Mato : Thank you Yoshi for the visit and comment “ Interesting perspective on this write. ” and after reading your free verse poems, by the way welcome to this site, I can see that you are a well educated man . “ A Loneliness Like This ” Quite eloquent, and if this is autobiographical ???, even if it is not ???, it is such a sad saga, of what I believe to be an attempted suicide, for such a young soul !!! Sorry !!! I was about to go to another of your poems when I saw your note explaining . “ A Traveller's Sorrow ” is the essence of all human nature Yoshi Mato, none of us can escape that fact !!!, no matter, upon which part of this little blue planet, we set foot on or try to escape to .
