Tabula Rasa

The following has several pointers that are obvious and some that are not. Meaning comes through in considering not just the totality of the theme or concept, but in how the words interact to convey a message that does not involve your mind.

“Tabula Rasa” – written and read through Walter

The pen of the person makes markings
on a pristine, translucent page,
in an effort to chronicle the past
or predict the future.

These interpretations and forecasts
filter the light of awareness
through a personal viewpoint
and obscure a unique and exquisite unfolding.

In the immediacy of now it may occur
to drop the pen and, in the blink of an eye,
the delible ink fades, writing on water,
attributeless untarnished tabula rasa.
