knowledge: Cinquain

knowledge
what raises us
graded soft,  on a curve
since the renaissance, just short of
vision

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I have always felt it ironic that the enlightenment signalled the beginning of our disabling dichotomy of dualism. Just short of vision indeed.

    So true, and stated in such a succinct way. There’s usually an issue when those who lead our revolutions include but parts of populations. Whether Renaissance or the Age of Enlightenment someone forgot to invite that other gender. Others might see it differently through eyes equipped with different filters, but that’s my story.

  5. Your cinquain would make Adelaide Crapsey so very happy! (She was the inventor of the American Cinquain!) So few words with so much said. Lovely.
