IMAGES


Images, such as, sights, memories, 

handsome men and pretty girls

are steps in the natural process

of absorbing perceptions into self

on the longer path to knowing what we know

for use in shaping worlds

in harmony with instincts


But all too easily

mental pictures become stopping off places

if not excuses for faithlessness

on the way to current seeing

essential for being our creative selves
