The Conflict of Spirit and Passion






What home the gods will ever find?
Flight cycles spiral to each place
Where spirit lessons that unwind
In flitting essence, passions face.

(Wordle 358)

    I tried parsing a meaning but I’m at a loss.

    . . . I’m probably not meant to read poetry in the first place.

      This is one of those poems where the meaning that comes to the reader after seeing context, illustrations and title, is it! Immaterial if it differs from reader to reader. Of course, it is structured within the confines of the given words and my CRD — (compulsive rhyming disorder).

      If you say so . . . but for me, it doesn’t. I can understand the parts but not how they fuse into the whole.

      But, no matter. Like I said; poetry and I are not well-suited for each other.


      • colonialist says:

        ‘Those separate parts are not unknown, but the way I assemble them’s all my own …’
        In essence, the gods get no rest trying to imbue sprit into humans in conflict with their passions. (This must in no way be confused with the Passion of Christ.)
