It seems at least for the moment
I am caught between truth and denial

Life’s cycle of waking and sleeping
Of working and playing
Continues on its folly through time

And I look for perspective
And some sense of meaning
In the way the waves roll into my mind

And the method that the sun
Casts its shadows upon my eyes

I am absorbed in what I know as real
And the forgery of what my senses believe

I am trying to maintain balance
While keeping the inevitable vertigo
From spinning me out of control

And I am no longer denying
How I can penetrate the rim of the unknown

I am no longer rejecting
The likelihood I am permeating my dreams

To freely wander
Within my choice to be found

We perceive many choices, some real and some imagined. You have a fine sense of imagineering.

caught-up in the flipping of coins
landing on neither side........
holding on not to lose control
surrender in stable hands........enjoyed

Hmmm... reality verses forgery... now there's a fine tango, Sir Robert! This one leaves my head spinning. Always a pleasure to savor your creations. Please do keep on wandering...
Reviewed by Dale Clark
I think all of our dreams are interelated
in some weird way. But to be free to find
your own choice is superb. Excellent thoughts!

Wonderful wonderful poem, Jude ...
Reviewed by Kate Burnside
Funny, when I posted last night, it was a toss-up between "Falling" and "Truth And Reality", in which I was thinking about how the two can be entirely different - but how it is that whatever is real to us is what actually shapes the way we negotiate life. As Nordette says, I love the sense of journeying in this, but it is paced with an easy stride that seems confident and assured; secure despite the potential vagaries of life. And for some reason, the image which you leave us with reminds me of the picture of God walking in the garden of Eden "in the cool of the evening shade", seeking out his friend Adam to have fellowship with him! A wonderful sense of breaking through with this, to inhabit the wide open space of higher planes: the tableland on the mountain top. Visionary to say the least. TY... Over and out! Kate xx

Great write, but for some weird reason I was looking for it to continue. I had just got caught up in it when it abruptly ended. Maybe it's just me:) I am in a weird mood today.

awesome write, gives one much to think about...

Yes this is indeed a profound write and really hitting your stride.
Reviewed by L. Figgins
Profound write! Synthesize all those points of energy entering your conciousness. What you call "folly" is the very meat that will feed you what you want to know, for in the mundane are the lessons for our existence. You know not to be fooled by the appearance of things(illusion), think of what they represent in your life and the meaning they hold. There is plenty of "meat" in this poem to chew, for certain!

"am trying to maintain balance While keeping the inevitable vertigo
From spinning me out of control" Awesome write, Jude. I've heard many times that God is the glue that holds our demented society together. It would be so much worse without the "glue."

Wow, very beautiful ace

One of your best, Robert.

This reminds me of ancient proverbs.
Perhaps we are more kindred to those who went before, than we/I realise.

At 4 am, this sure feels deep for this brain of mine.
But sure great substance here to ponder..

Excellent piece.

"I am trying to maintain balance
While keeping the inevitable vertigo
From spinning me out of control."

I relate to those lines...
Reviewed by Sherry Heim
There are some very sound thoughts in these verses, Robert. We do have control of our dreams, and in life we are only limited by our own self-imposed boundaries. Wavering between the accepted norm and the world of enlightenment is for mere mortals. Those who wish soar with the eagles will not be held to the ground by the anchors of the masses. Deep, profound write, Robert, another awe inspiring piece.

Take care,
