Thoughts Written on a Blue Evening with Bonfires

What do you think about the meaning
of poetry and literature and art?
For some, a well-rhymed poem leaves them dreaming,
for others poetry’s a thing apart
from what they call reality, but I
think poetry’s the thing that makes us live or die.

Imagine what’s reality, you think of it.
You’ll never fathom all of it, for sure.
You only catch a minute glimpse of it,
Rather than certain, it remains obscure.

Now what you - I - all of us can do
to get a notion of all this chaos, is to pluck
some fractions of it, randomly. With luck
you’ll set a world, that helps you live, in motion.
It’s poetry, art, fiction that will make it.
It makes life possible if you don’t fake it.
