Two Poem Tuesday

In celebration of having this blog for two days, I had the bright idea to throw up two poems. And, speaking of “bright” ideas, both of these sorta kinda have to do with the concept of brightness. Well, one is about light and the other dark; not to draw metaphor to any good/evil dichotomy. Anyway, here they be – separated by a fittingly cliché picture of a sunset I took – Enjoy:

The Light

 

 

Sometimes,

I stare at the light

Until it obstructs my sight,

And I gaze at things with their new,

Momentary,

Glowing,

Halos.

I space-out at the spiral coil of a bulb

While my space starts to spiral and dissolve.

Turning away,

Vision astray,

I become the self-appointed king of esoteric geometry,

As celestial circles weave wildly on the white wall.

There’s aesthetic beauty in relinquished reality.

Yet, the spineless demise of blindness will arise,

To those who give light a lengthy looking of the eyes.

Wax Wings Waxed under the Waxing Gibbous

I, like Icarus,

Reach great height.

Though I’m aware

His fallacy of flight.

He flew too high

With sun in sight.

When I fly high

I wait ‘til night.

About cognifeeder

My name is Josh. I like to think about things. I also like to write (albeit, “type” might be a more appropriate verb). Sometimes, I can muster these two likes into an enthralling synergy of self-expression. Sometimes not. Cognifeeder was a word I made up in this poem. To me, a “Cognifeeder” is any bit of learned information. A Cognifeeder is a piece of culture, something learned that contributes to one's map of reality. The world is littered with Cognifeeders. Take them lightly. When I’m not blogging, I run Sonata, a digital marketing and SEO agency based in Aledo, Texas.
