|Who has a hold on truth is packed with imagery that is literally jumping of the page. In answer to the question, "WH has a hold on truth?, I would have to go with the child. Most young children having been conditioned yet to lie.

|Anything that is unchanging is the truth. I often wonder if I really want to know it even though I seek it with my breath of thought.|

Good question Robert,I think truth can be held when it is seen and found,sometimes though it is camouflaged by the powerful and we can't find it to hold.I think in time though history holds it but I don't know if that is always so.Perhaps God alone has a hold on truth,either that or it is children,they do hold truth the most (from what I have seen of it anyway.)The poet by the candle I think comes nearest to it,you hold it retty well Robert.
Best wishes always to you and yours

|Plunder the depths here. Though truth means different things to different, people, races, cultures, and football supporters.
Another mental workout for me here.. With multitudes of inner mind pictures on every line...

|You have mentioned many things seen and heard here, things that are transient and appear conditionally.
I don't believe that Truth is found in the plant or the blossoms - I believe that Truth is found in the roots.
Where the roots are, there is the source of life!
Is Truth a man? Or is Truth the journey trying to find truth?
There have been some interesting responses to this one Jude. Some are thoughtful and focused and some are sure they already know.
I will say that when everyone closes their eyes in death, and the spirit leaves the flesh, then who Truth is will be made quite apparent.
Pity those that are still searching.

You define truth in the most mercurial way...as it should be....ethereal and transitory...I was particulary drawn to your last two verses, they struck a chordant note with me...
Exceptional write of outstanding quality..
You have the mark of a professional poet...you make us all think and analyse our motives and raison de tres

|Robert, this is an exceptional piece of work. And what better subject for a poet to turn his or her pen to, then the eternal question of truth.|

|I must be one of the incredulous who still chase this illusion we call truth when we try to define it in human terms. You always make me think Jude, why me? Peace, blessings and gratitude Master Poet. I bow once more to your pen. <Mikii>|

|Truth is what the soul derives as honesty. Each person has his own grain of truth in their hourglass. It's all in how it's percieved and the way the soul has conditioned. Great thought provoking piece here Robert.

|Ah, Jude, those who has a hold on truth is us all, I am afraid. The truth as we see it, whether we be neo-Nazi's or Ghadhi-influenced. Now if you had wen ahead and capitalized Truth, that, then is a different sort of truth.|

|Hey, I'm still learning. And how short was the wick on that candle by the way?
|Reviewed by Sherry Heim
|I wonder if there is anything that we can refer to as a solid truth or if all truth is more like an onion; you have to remove layer after layer, all similar but each unique as well, to get to the core of the matter. Truth seems to be fleeting with the times as well. Some things that we once held to be true, we now see as untruths...and what exactly is the truth but the collective agreement of the majority? You have my mind buzzing, Jude. Before I stopped by here this evening, I might have said that I know truth..now, I present my own argument to myself regarding it.

|Another gem! I love the imagery it's inspired and uplifting! Truth is a hard thing to define, because for many it's like beauty,
"in the eye of the beholder".
