Being a Philosopher…

It cannot be taught.

It can only be known from experience.

The chattering world is forever formulating conceptions

of the philosophical states…

They are all false.

running hand-in-hand with a severe dialectic

is deemed incredible.

That serious thought can move as swift,

easy and divine as dance is an unsuspected dream.

The Artist, with his or her subtle sense of play,

though, may know more…

May know necessity and free will as one.
