mental fortitude

an inclination toward thought

question of a purposeful position

the mental fortitude of the world

an insanity of big things that break down into a small action

 

and lapses .. lots of spaced time, between and in

 

\ could be found in the realms there

not in hands & or eyes flickered in blinking light,

in mind’s thought freedom, the freedom of thought, and its freedom from thought

 

 

the ages of learning and growing

the ages of questions .. still the answers end in unsatisfying ways

why is this .. the parent will answer, the child will ask again,  why is this .. the parent will answer .. until both do not know the answer any further, and it’s there that we reach for the thread tangible and yet slipping

 

 

hands and feet

long toes

mental fortitude

the ways of the radiance,

in getting there

 

flickered feelings

 

a small moment of breathing in it 

the collapsed image replayed

 

 

being young & figuring out .. the orientation isn’t as solid as “word”, it’s not always “image” sometimes “sound” and most of the time “passage”

 

the passage is still and yet it moves

 

the mind

through

 

 

passage is moving through its still filter patterned light
