  1. This surprised and delighted me, Paul. The dense verbal structures and complex syntax I enjoy so much – your aural fireworks – replaced by a pattern of simple repetitions to reinforce a powerful message. Illuminating in more ways than one. “One’s malpractice of life” – that line cuts to the bone.

  2. <smile> Well, I might say

    on the ledge
    is the place to accept
    One’s own true beauty
    And the beauty of existence

    Although, I rather suspect we’d mean the same thing. ❤

    Beautiful poem and insight, no matter how one interprets its final stanza. 🙂
