Here’s a piece for World Poetry Day 2018 from one of our members, Roddie McKenzie.
Mind and Poem
I am the man,
the poem lives in me,
impressions of wondrous
things that I see,
by the neural net of my mind.
With paper and pen,
I am the mind, the poem is I,
the crystallised thought
that will never die.
Distilled from centuries of fermented thought.
I am the spirit,
folk should have sought.
I am the man, the poem, the soul.
created in flesh for an immortal role.
I am Malkuth, beginning and end
I am Kether, the cosmic diadem.
Roddie McKenzie, 1972 (tweeked March20th 2018).
