Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand.
-- Neil Armstrong
My quest is about feats mentally untried
be it a new discipline or new meditation
always inspired by life's mysterious side
seeing whole reality as my own creation.
Letting spirit's light in mind's unknown
I keep discovering what else I could be
feeling the least lonely when I am alone
for then my love is divine for all I can see.
With fine-tuning my instrument every tune sounds good
and like Zen master would say, all the world is inside
so I never wait for a mercy of some optimal mood
creating new portraits of world I've never tried.
Yet on certain level I'm just another aging dude
not that alchemist of mind for all others to see
I picked my social image as best as I could
blending with all on this pretending spree.
For everyone is selective at their self-revealing
their most intimate truth secured in a safe hide
coming out with standard repertoire of feeling
trying to be well recognizable from each side.
That's where I make some clumsy excursions
into this world of interacting by prescribed rules
watered down into some of my many odd versions
dressed in costume of wise men, or costume of fools.
