THE REAL WONDERS OF THE EARTH (TRUTH)


In the real wonders of the earth,
Truth lies in the line between reality and idealism
Between logic (wisdom) and foolishness
Exaggeration and euphemism
Light and darkness
Between the earth and sky beyond (the third heaven)

In the real wonders of the earth
Truth lies between life’s unsolved puzzles
Between the murderer and the victim
The surface waves and the seabed
Between being and nihilo (nothingness)
Between dominance and despondency
Courage and cowardice
Blanc (white) and black

In the real wonders of this earth
Truth lies not in the multiplication and addition of things
Nor in the definition of matter
But between imagination and dormancy
Between fate and inspiration
Origin and extinction
Belief and agnosticism
thoughtlessness and fantasy

In the real wonders of our earth
Truth plays second fiddle
To farce wonders in human riddle
But Scribes the real rules
Even in the heart of fools

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
