My dream of Socrates

Jonas Robinson

Myth is metaphor 

A seeming within symbolism

A dream we must uncover through Jungian Quakerism


To apply all morality of aesthetic definitive 

Into a simple ritual of simple life pleasure

For that harmony is the love of wisdom, and community enhances productivity


And with a savored hourglass and a savored cigar, he said

And so the wisest of all men, shall spend all of his days reading our book

With no remorse, which is of course, the words, of the gods

    Awesome concept this Jungian Quakerism. I suppose there must be community and awareness for that to occur! Perhaps a communal reading would spice things up around the fire now that Autumn has started its etching upon the last stretch of calendar. Thanks for sharing.
