In Philosophical Mood...

Energy,
seeking direction,
falls to earth
from heaven.
Will mankind harness power
for the good of all?

Thanks to Tess and her Mag 127 image by Franz Kline. I've also shared this with The Poetry Pantry.

  1. Oh, you never disappoint. I love what you've done with the image, and your words.

  2. i doubt it, probably twist it to feed their selfishness...guess that is rather cynical but then one does not have to look far to find those only init for themselves...then again i guess it all depends on whose hands it falls into...

    1. Jinksy, somehow I'm not being allowed to post comments so will tack on to Brian - wonderful that you inverted the color here. Hard to imagine Man doing anything for all unless he gets to a very clear brink. k.

  3. Energy is always being wasted and manipulated for the purpose of man's political and selfish desires. Nice.

  10. Good question, Jinsky! Will there be elements out to corner the market to their advantage? It's the way of the world. Great Thoughts!

    1. But do we need to understand it to use it? I think not...

    1. You got it in one, Izzy! Healing energy is exactly what I had in mind...

  13. "seeking direction" opposes "falls" and seems to invite the "Harness" that has not been applied. Interesting image that hits my senses, though you don't seem to aim at the senses at all. How did you do that? Neat.

    1. Interesting point…I think the ‘energy’ of which I spoke, whether it be solar power, wind power or the healing power (translate as ‘unconditional love’ if you find the word healing difficult) which I believe is the everywhere in the universe, is all there in abundance, but without our conscious decision to use it wisely, it’s wasted.
      Does that maybe answer your question? *smiles* I was certainly trying to put a feeling/thought/concept into words. You make me believe I succeeded…

  19. I love how you play with the pictures to find something new! I wish I could be more positive about mankind but I doubt it!

  20. JInksy . . I think your reply to Susan (above) is another way of saying "I've got my love to keep me warm" (The power companies don't like it. They don't like it I tell you!)

  21. Sadly, it doesn't heat my hot water though Doc, so the Brit Gas and Southern Electric people have nothing to fear from me... :)

  22. I was reminded of pictures I've seen of twisters ... now that would be a power to harness

  23. Certainly you've made the image white hot! Very energised. I enjoy your 'dual' work.

  24. One could surely hope so! Positive healing is so available, if only...

  25. Oh if only he would. Excellent imaginative take Jinksy.

  28. Probably not, but we dare to hope.

  30. I like the spirituality in this poem. I take it as divine intervention from the heavens to instill and inspire goodness in all. It's possible if one stays open ... great poem. Thank you for visiting my blog :)
