The seeker

‘Its signs are writ upon the seeker's heart, yet still the seeker cannot ken those signs until his heart becomes exposed to light…’ ~Rumi Nous is the greatest faculty of mankind; our sentient being is crucified as a weakness. Its signs are writ upon the seeker's heart. A sybarite is often a slave to his habits; leaving a huddle of implicature in his wake, yet still the seeker cannot ken those signs. Euphonious phrases are mellifluous to the ear— impervious to the unction being ephemeral until his heart becomes exposed to light… REASON FOR CHOICE OF WORDS: I chose the words for their semantic qualities. 2020-02-08 Exalted Words Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Chantelle Anne Cooke | PS (After the closing of contest) "He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary." - William Faulkner (about Ernest Hemingway).

Best not to shine to much light onto these words or some redundancy will be revealed. Mind you each word could be a poem on its own. Thanks for your visit Echo. ;0) p.s. great Rumi Quote.
