JUST ANOTHER GLORIOUS DAY
orchidee said:

People do get on our nerves some days, or some times. Seems like planet of the apes at times, though I don\'t go along with evolution.
Then again we may say \'You greedy pig\', and reply \'Why you insulting pigs?\'

I love your sacred stories, Louis! And yes, love IS the glue that holds everything together!

IT IS TIME
Resa71 said:

I really liked this poem.
And while computers are pretty much controlling most aspects of our lives, the one thing that can not be programmed, or replicated is a soul, the spirit of any living being!
That’s what I cling to, that’s what keeps my hope alive.
Your writing is awesome! You got the wheels turning in my head. That’s what a good write is supposed to do. Thank you for sharing! :)

IT IS TIME
Santita said:

The second verse is really what worries me about the future.. What will become of us? I also wonder what we will do to ourselves, but adding computer-robots into the mix does frighten me, if I am honest. The end of war is a beautiful idea, my friend, but if the book \"1984\" is any indication we are far from peace. Anyhow, love the way you put thought into your pieces, they always contain a glimpse of you, which I enjoy seeing & interpreting in my own way. Always great writing!

Nice write Louis and especially the ironic ending is thought provoking.

IT IS TIME
FredPeyer said:

Our brains are no match for computers as far as math is concerned, but I have yet to see a computer with the kind of imagination displayed here on these pages!
But no matter what, if the days of waging war and despoiling the planet could come to an end, that would be wonderful!
Love your poem, Louis!

IT IS TIME
orchidee said:

Oh I know. It\'s said humans only use 10% of their brain capacity. Or in some cases they only use 1% (me?! lol).

IT IS TIME
orchidee said:

A fine write Louis. I would say our brains are far superior than computers. The computers only do what human programme them for - good and bad.
Unless one day some creepy self-automaton arrives. But even if so, some human will have to invent it to begin with.

THE STRUGGLE WITHIN
dusk arising said:

Hmmmm i too pondered long upon this until i discovered Buddhism which has no higher being, deity or god. It teaches you how to perceive. I\'m not selling the idea but so many modern ideas on existence and spiritual matters do lead back to its teachings and it doesn\'t try to rope you into \'switching gods\'.
Nice thought provoking writing from you.

THE STRUGGLE WITHIN
Lorna said:

I think there isn\'t one - a point that is. So it leaves a blank slate for you to put anything you want on it. Short of ax murder..........

THE STRUGGLE WITHIN
orchidee said:

A fine write Louis. I don\'t quite understand what, or how, the \'Higher Self\' may be.

THE STRUGGLE WITHIN
Michael Edwards said:

I do find that now I\'m retired and with so much still to look forward to this kind of dilemma passes me by - great work Louis.

THE STRUGGLE WITHIN
Goldfinch60 said:

Very good write. The struggle for understanding will always be there but once our \'Higher Self\' is set free we will understand.

THE STRUGGLE WITHIN
FredPeyer said:

Love it, Louis! And the struggle goes on...
I am with you, would love to know more!
Don\'t know if it is true, but heard that we are only using 10% of our brain. Think how much further we would be in our thinking if we could unleash the other 90%!

TEMPORARY TEMPLES
Santita said:

Oh this is quite powerful, Louis. I absolutely agree about how we treat our vessels. and the fact that you call them \"temples of the soul\" touches my heart. You are a beautiful soul.

THE WANDERING MUSE
Santita said:

Ah, Louis. This is a piece i could have written! My muse has taken a very long vacation, seemingly abandoning me lol. I, also, have been busy. However, I love this piece! I enjoy that you wrote is as if speaking to your muse. Your last line made me laugh! It is always a pleasure to read your work, dear one.

Lorna said:

Very good! I\'m glad you could write it!

THE WANDERING MUSE
orchidee said:

You got some more cartridges for that fountain pen?! That what you mean - ink dried up?
Oh I see, your muse dried up! heehee.

THE WANDERING MUSE
Michael Edwards said:

Yup - ideas do sometimes dry up. But I read avidly and usually find something in a book which triggers something if only a one liner. As for this - it\'s a super work which flows from start to finish .

This is a treasure. I\'m keeping it.

TEMPORARY TEMPLES
FredPeyer said:

Your great poem made me think, Louis! Is it maybe the other way round? Part of the soul\'s education to experience living inside a neglected and/or abused temporary temple? Just food for thought or maybe a discussion.
