Shaman - Horse

Poem - Imagination Spawns

The poem “Imagination Spawns” was inspired by the quote, “but you insist on seeing me as you imagined me, I’m not that person”, credited to the 1992 French film “A Heart in Winter”.

Imagination Spawns

Imagination spawns the doting hoax
ready to match desires bespoke
from the weave of rapt desires
disconnected from the now

seen in mirrors of the self
awareness spawn by experience
don't ask the gods for wisdom's boon
to move beyond knowing's doom

still the seamstress must persist
with harlequins as consequence
mocking truth with blind intent
to see the world without sight

these revelations of personhood
dressed up with no place to go
when expectations fail to view
the reality perceived by you.
