Synaptic Legerdemaine…


Ingredients: adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine

I am dust from the library of Alexandria
I am plasma from the heart of a Star
I am the sunrise over Giza
I am a prayer to Odin
I am a ship in the heart of a Storm
I am Rembrandt and Da Vinci
I am Mozart and Vivaldi
I am Whitman and Tennyson
I am Shakespeare and Byron
I am an inanimate writing utensil in love with its Poetess
I am the sword arm of Courage
I am the strength of Grace
I am the will of Fate
I am the kiss of Karma
I am the tears of Mercy
I am the promise of Hope
I am the longing of a Nymph for Water
I am the turning of the planet under my feet
I am the Bard of Olympus
I am Theseus’ ball of twine
I am a wooden horse built from the planks of the Achaean fleet
I am the color of twilight
I am deep romantic love
I am an innocent crush
I am Lear’s broken heart
I am a Capulet
I am a Montague
I am a drifter with a six gun
I am his love for a Showgirl
I am her desperate need to be free
I am an addict
I am a way out
I am a distraction from pain
I am an admission of guilt
I am a second chance
I am victory
I am defeat
I am a soldier at his post
I am unflinching loyalty
I am a comforting embrace
I am Peace and Understanding
I am Sanctuary
I am the ancient places of antiquity
I am entire worlds yet to be born
I am a sigh
I am a tear
I am a mover of Hearts
I am a caretaker of the suffering
I am neither of Heaven nor of Hell
I am neither Hero nor Villain
I am.

    Lovely write Eric and very moving. I was once tempted too by this desire of definition and identification.

    In my view, Eric, this piece is a testament to the breadth and depth of your imaginative mind. I’m sorry to be so far behind on my reading (and commenting), but you are always near the top of my list. Hope you are well.

    Your proclamation is a raft over the waterfall of hardships, forgetfulness and as a resurrected phoenix comes soaring in our minds.
    Beautiful my friend as are you!
