Ship of Fools....

A metaphor indeed is this of how we sail on a ship through life filled with fools. Yet many of an ancient time philosophized on this and left much for us to study. Now many people disregard the past not realizing there is much wisdom to be culled. They are the ones caught up in destruction of our world.

Transcribe...maybe

Across a wide expanse of sea
The ship sailed oh so merrily
Crew of ancient memories they
Gulled from ports both far and near

Philosophers some
Writers others
Even those who songs did sing
Long ago


All part of a tale to be told
When it comes through
Me bloody brain
Transcribed onto a page I hope

Some of the crew....

Aristotle one
His long beard kept getting in the way
Winding round the oar he yielded
Keeping pace philosophising all the while

Another Plato
Mathematician he
Counting numbers constantly
Measuring distances carefully

Confucius had inimitable way
Making clarity come alive
Simplicity in every word
Sailing with a ship of fools


Just as we do today...

The Search Goes On...

They seek her here
They seek her there
Who are they seeking everywhere
I will not tell


So much rides on her
To do and say and write
Shake the world up by its tail
Before it falls into the sea
Forever disappears
As Atlantis did!

Graduates all....

To the equation add
Whatever comes into your head
Two plus two makes four they say
Unless it does not

Mighty is the way of man
As he bestrides the burning earth
His heels are high
Keeping him off the ground

Ungrounded now in every way
Slipping sideways into the mire
Where gather all the darker ones
Graduates of Kal Niranjan

You...me

What more to say
All has been said
A billion ways and more
Everlasting to everlasting
Will find its way some more

That is how humanity is
Sorry must take away the hu
For that the part of God
Within me and you


Man is the lower form
Yet necessary can be
A place wherein resides usefulness
A temple for the soul

Use rightly will enhance
Others destroy
Always a choice.....

Always a choice...even when we make no choice, we have chosen.

I like the line 2 and 2 is 4 except when it is not. Kinda how I've felt the last few weeks. ;) Speaking of numbers -- would be interested in seeing some numerology articles. And I haven't seen a horoscope in a while -- or does my memory simply suck? ;)

We have made all the mistakes but we repeat them every generation and pay a higher price along the way! We are emotional fools in the end when reason takes a back seat. Thanks for this wisdom filled post, Carolina - siva

We do not learn from history but continue to make the same mistakes.
