In many instances, less is more
Allowing our thoughts to soar
Too much information confuses
Even though at times it amuses
The character and plot of a book
Change what we feel, our outlook
Based on a few lines of prose
Is it a garden or the meadows
The writer’s description minimal
Certainly won’t be predictable
As imagination fills in the lines
Very satisfying these outlines
From the ridiculous to the sublime, we can be moved on profound levels. Has that ever happened to you? I have to admit that occasionally it has happened to me.
On one flip of the coin I read a piece of prose so profound and insightful I was momentarily dumbfounded as I grasped it’s implications. It was a thought so completely implausible yet possible, it stopped me in my tracks.
Conversely I read an article by a writer that was although earnest, clearly the scariest notion I’d ever read. It too was completely stunningly profound in it’s ignorance and in my opinion shortsightedness, but still it effected me the same way.
From the ridiculous to the sublime
To new heights i have climbed
By ignorance personified
A notion so radical
It seemed laughable
Nothing superficial mild or slight
That which fills us with deeper insight.
