Intelligence is a window of opportunity

Growing and developing
Moving to the momentum of its own ideals

It matures and understands
It has more to learn
Yet so much more to offer

It entertains all possibilities
While undisturbed with improbability

Dreams are the inspired thoughts
Taking on form and substance

They awaken and probe
The world within our souls
And the civilization inside our fears

Without dreams life would be barren

The sailboats adorn no sails
The rivers evaporate into dust

The mental rust:
Totally suffocating

Reality is what we make of it

It is present within our hands
It flourishes from the source of our wits

It is a gut feeling
Of a collective effort

It is the whims of a single mind

Conviction is the will
To apply ideas born by light

And to accept the mystery
Within life’s evolving spectrum

A well thought out and intelligence piece. I especially like the concept of 'mental rust.'

... this makes it good to be home!! Love the way you pan through these psychic strands and come up with the gold everytime! I certainly believe that there is some form of objective Truth which is out there, governing the universe and waiting to be found in its totality: but reality is so much a different thing - and is certainly, on a personal basis, that which we make it and feel it to be for ourselves. Like Star, I am blown away by the stanza about (dreams) awakening and probing "The world within our souls And the civilisation inside our fears"... that is soooo spot on: it IS our fears that are neatly regimented and organised such that they control the stuff of our daily life experience, and patrol with their mindset our restrictive self-imposed boundaries. Such a liberating thought that our awakened dreams can help us scale their walls and break loose through their wires! Yippee!! My sails are luffing up nicely after this... :)) TY Kate xx PS And doesn't Ellen McCarthy just ROCK!! Don't tell me she doesn't have a few more dreams and visions up her... sou'wester!!

"The sailboats adorn no sails
The rivers evaporate into dust..." These thoughts only prove how vital it is for us to express ourselves in the best forms we know how and to live life to the fullest, regardless of how others may feel. I think that is the essence of life -- the ability for us all to do what we do, however well or differently, yet always do so freely and somewhat unrehearsed.
Very well-written, thought-provoking write, Robert. Do not ever lose sight of your dreams!

If anyone knows what intelligence is, it is you! Your capacity for expressing yourself in amazing ways, is endless.

I have no question in my mind about the unlimited spectrum of your intelligence.
Your writing seems to somehow manage to grow better every day, but everytime I read you, I think, "It just doesn't get any better than this," but then tomorrow it does..
Awesome writing Robert!
