Sonnet: An Artist’s Life

Poverty wakes up a Poetic genius!
Bereavement of loved ones kindles the fire;
Serendipity, a signal glorious;
Disease, sadness, solitude- playing lyre!

Search for human love sharpens intellect;
Love-failure turns one to spiritualism;
Despair- a new faith/hope tries to inject;
Divinity takes o’er from materialism.

The search for truth and God within begins;
Sense of values and peace of mind surface;
Remorse, atonement starts for one’s past sins,
And man finds his way out of his life’s maze.

Devotion, dedication, thus comes on;
A Heav’nly direction is now reborn.

Five ballades with a prologue

(after W.E.G. Louw)

Prologue: The child of God

From the creation,
long before the time of Plato and Aristotle
the word of God was the child’s criterion
while he ruled over everything.

When darkness rose right across the earth
others came in rebellion
wanted to show the God of creation
that they do not regard Him
and did not want to believe him

that destruction will follow upon their deeds,
that rain will fall in a terrible flood
that flooding will come as a result
from the hand of the God of the universe.

Poem about Poetry - all in the showing

to say i love you is easy
to say i believe in God is also easy
to philosophise about life is easy
you just go on and on with maxims
you learn from your kid days
but to show how all these can be done
without being trapped in verbiage
and intellectual pomp, mushiness,
spiritualism and bigotry, and keep
the lines reverberating with images
in the reader's mind well that's poetry

Delight In Variety

Others tell us what ‘truth’ should be when we
are small and with this tunnel vision we tackle
the world of experience and symbolism, bored
in our mental citadels

My life began when I discovered mysteries of
the unexplained: Egyptian pyramid blocks too
heavy for forklifts, ancient astronaut theories,
spontaneous human combustion

The face on Mars, levitation, spiritualism, the
Bermuda Triangle, UFO’s, theosophy, Sufi
dancers and the Mahabharata – requiring
a new definition of ‘truth’

Which I found in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld
law that belief always manifest in reality, thus
faith is the magic ingredient which determines
‘truth’ and being

Heat Of Feelings - Life's Vertices (Revised)

Life becomes senseless without dreams - the one
thing left, testing ideals by doing the opposite,
discovering alternatives that do not work, breaking
every rule to determine meaning

Pain for long-term gain is the only way to live happily;
humanity the sole religious authority whose embedded
ideals are fine as long as we're not forced to follow
teachings - I dream about miracles, read how

Quantum physics explains all forms of spiritualism,
how consciousness creates physical phenomena
supposedly only perceived, how a wise mind can
present inherently beautiful ideas conceptually

Cynicism kills optimism by abstract abhorrence; life's
value rides upon rays of insight colouring the world
with tinctures of feelings and emotions, created
intrigues, but won't change inner traits

Return to the Dream

‘Through The Wormhole’ Morgan Freeman debating whether
intelligent life exists in our universe led to my mind getting stuck
on the wrong mental station where my fictitious characters cannot
help in resolving the argument

My five senses let me experience the dead universe which Morgan
Freeman insists is the only thing in existence – making me feel so
desperately lonely; I need an alternative to the physical depiction
of a cold and lifeless universe

My instincts and feelings require the mystique of Spiritualism and
Occultism to empower my ‘dead’ body in which the ‘thinking ghost’
is enclosed to work efficiently; the ‘thinking ghost in the machine’
theory is suffocating – let me return to the dream

In order to lead a happy and productive life; let these scientists enjoy
their self-created dark, cold and meaningless universe restricted to
their illogical assumptions of undesigned life, the limitations of their
senses and the level of their technology

Living Off The Grid

Living off the grid in the interstices between the threads
of the spider webs bejewelling the sky with stars
like the net of Indra in the morning dew. Mark one dropp
and they're all marked. Subtract from one
and you take from all. Same way with our eyes
when they see like crystal skulls right through
the ruse of themselves to the glassblowers
of fifteenth century Germany. Cool visuals.
The light refracting off the nuanced smear
above their left front parietal lobes as if
they had something as happy and irrational as water
to be clear about in a brittle kind of way.

And that's ok, that's ok, that's ok, too,
but you've got to get down and dirty in the starmud
like the root of an optic nerve deep in the dark matter of the brain,
if you want to be what you see in the visionary sense of the word.
If you want to fly with the dragons that bring the rain
you can't sip like a hummingbird collecting blood samples
from the hollyhocks. You can't live like a tuning fork

Believe to be in space.

Metaphysics is beyond comprehension.
It is born of intuition and mysticism
And moulded of spiritualism and coated by logic
Believe it, or leave it; don’t dispute it.

Disgraced Spiritualism...

Fake spiritualists drive me irate,
Disturbances kill the natural flow,
People procrastinate,
The word puzzles embedded with highly spiritualistic quotes,
Nothing to act just knowledge overflows,
People hallucinate and cover a blanket of enlightened soul,
Discussing the secrets of Karma, Mantra, Time and Space,
These discussions have slayed hourglasses at stretch,
Why don't they work over their mistakes,
The beards hinder the lips that advertise the masked faces,
They fail at action and end up with the curled efforts.

Hey you all please try and act,
Stop your disgraced nonsense,
Don't haunt for peace,
Its not the thing to do,
Stop being egotist,
Loo for the hollowness,
This would really help.
