FATE LEADS THE WILLING

From the Stoic philosopher Cleanthes of Assos’ (c. 330 BC – c. 230 BC) famous hymn to Zeus – a part found in Epictetus’ Enchiridion:

Lead me on, O Zeus, and thou Destiny,
To that goal long ago to me assigned.
I’ll follow readily but if my will prove weak;
Wretched as I am, I must follow still.
Fate guides the willing, but drags the unwilling.


***
FATE LEADS THE WILLING when my life my very wellbeing depends on the actions of those around me it’s a trial to my innate sensibilities to bring my side if my destiny is to live my final years in isolation cut off from the interaction with others it shouldn’t be any hardship as I can employ this time to the enrichment of my scant knowledge to learn to do without material trappings of this capitalist world admit that we are guided by the rules of nature and I must accept all things are beyond one’s own personal power every day every hour every minute of my day is another chance for a different path there are very few things that we can control also those who resist the pull of Fate will feel hamstrung by events that alter their life plans an individual who accepts the things that occur in life that are beyond his control can lead a happy life by controlling negative emotions and passions et du volentem fata nolentem trahunt* _______________________________________________________ *both Fate leads the willing and drags the unwilling

A WORLD WITHOUT POETRY

“A world without poetry and art would be too much like one without birds or flowers: bearable but a lot less enjoyable.”~ Aberjhani

A WORLD WITHOUT POETRY
if a tree falls and there is no one to hear it
not even the merest susurrus
for a poet to capture the moment
the spell of redamancy would be broken
the world, as we know it, would not exist

From my achieves.

Literal and Figurative

The reflection, whether of thought or an object, is always of a darker hue than the subject matter.
reflection ~ always a shade darker than reality

MONA LISA-S PARAMOUR

A period of youthful vim ferments
as coruscating golden flecks in eyes 
that mesmerise and tantalise, give rise
to secrets in my breast to stir, foment.
The xanthous tresses that cascade torment. 
My eager and impressionable sighs
that echo every pirouette and pliés,
a fleeting intercession of lament.
A maverick when it comes to amour
and quintessentially a rakish cad.
Unrequited love longstanding rancour,
but finally become your paramour.
An enigmatic smile ever so sad;
your broken heart I gladly give succour.

MY LEGACY

you cannot calculate my legacy in monetary value 
or in market shares
neither in some property
nor anything tangible

I leave you my soul
recorded in poetry
and thoughts
I share
with those of you with an ear for the essence of me
but unlike Keats not have my name written in water

200 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH
An epitaph is a commemorative inscription on a tomb or mortuary monument written to praise the deceased. It may be unrhymed. William Shakespeare, John Keats, and many other eminent poets had penned their own epitaphs. Keats travelled to Rome and died there, aged just 25, in February, 1821. He told his friend Joseph Severn that he didn't want his name to appear on his tombstone, but merely this line: ‘Here lies one whose name was writ in water’.

IN THE ROUND

Spring’s the time for couples and amorous poems; the tiny sun is then just overhead. She is the center of my existence – love roams – like the North Pole is the center of the earth. I will go to the ends of the earth for her love, but I can’t say how long it would take. The sun rises for her benefit; it is tough – but where does it go when it is night? I will move heaven and earth for her approval even if the elephants should fall off the turtle’s back! Nothing would ev’r eclipse her beauty or rival; like daffodils that come before the swallow dares.* The Bard center stage on disk – it was all the rage. The audience firmly placed in the round at The Globe and he declared: “All the world’s a stage …” There's no beginning, there'll be no end.†

Shattered windowpanes

Shattered windowpanes of life—
guilty secrets we never owned up to.

RELATIONSHIPS IN SPRING

The spider plant* sports many offshoots.
A mother
firmly
holds on to
her little girl's hand
at the plant nursery,
cautioning her not to stray.
