|Taking the summation lines of the three stanzas delivers an undeniable introspective challenge. Could...are...will. Choices. Yet, most choices are not free choices, as they derive their direction from how well we've taken in our many experiences. The ideal? Accepting reality isn't always "out there." The images as Plato posited is but a crafty suggestion that shadows of what we experience are housed ironically within all our 5 senses. Thanks for the mental workout. Hard to find on "any" writer's sites nowadays. doG! The fluff that far too many people waste their time to blow in our faces is daunting.|

|Springstein sang of the ideal past (Glory days)tho embellishment is part of the charm. When all is said and done the temptation to do just that can be irresistable, especially when the truth is often plain uninteresting. Love your punster style. Patrick|

|a most interesting and well written query into the conceptual nature of being alive in the modern world ... the Ideal Now, a state of being in tune with the vibration of life, is the venue mankind would benefit living in ...
a synaptic stimulation and craftily poetic excursion into the possible realities we can chose to live within ...

|A good phrase, roger: "All I have to impart is that we are always so much more than the sum of our imparts..." In other words, we are so much more than our knowledge or skills. I agree. But, then, like the color of each blossom, or the shape of each leaf, (etc) so each individual's knowledge and skills determine how they are perceived by those around. Your thoughts require contemplation and (IMO) are declarative of a man who seeks and struggles to understand the deeper things. A special fraternity, I believe, that take their marching orders from a Most High source. Happy holidays poet. Enjoyed ... richard|

|Tongue in cheek kinda writing here, but with a very serious bent to it. I particularly liked the first part where you speak the past and how we tend to jive it up somewhat. Good poetry. The thinking kind.|
