Prompt #135, It’s Post Your Poems Day!
My life as a poem
We Write Poems:
Is your life a poem? A “poetic question” we suppose, putting a little something wiggling on the hook. Although honestly, as about ever here, how you elaborate, how you define, what colors you put on your brush, all that we leave to you. We’d even be pleased to be surprised with some unexpected sort of response!
If you are alive, the elements of biology we’re talking about, then your every moment is some response to the one before – whether we’re even conscious of that, or not. And if you consider, regard that life has some purposefulness – then doesn’t the question deepen by quite some measure more? If you’re a poem, you, your life, what’s the message for us to know? What is your finger-print on this page?
Howsoever you found to respond, we await eagerly. And a small gift from one very considered and observant man to also share with you. An afterthought perhaps…
A human being is a part of the whole called by us “the universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening the circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
– Albert Einstein
