More than meets the eye

Tentative attentiveness,
cracks breaking apart the illusory barrier.
Notions of self and other,
animate and inanimate,
a world categorically subdued
by human language.
All these dissolving into
the wordless, ever changing patterns
of seen and unseen.

More lies in the spaces between,
than we have been taught.

Rationality, objectivity and measurability
robs us of mystery.
The wondrous banished to story books.
Mere sources of diverting entertainment
It has no place in
the serious adult realm of modern life.
Here spaces are empty.
Devoid of consciousness.
An eerie reflection of
what modernity is molding us into.
