Theme: Love

Nature of Reality

Reality is an extended concept
fleshed in from what is presently perceived
whose dimensionality is conceptual
in which materiality is known.
Materiality is known in terms
of identity form, something conceptual
that is formed of the mind only, but things
identified are denied concept nature.
The workability of things as concepts
identified, science is built upon,
whose inter-affectedness is established
in elegant equations, unconvincing
as to the creative formative Source
that appears merely to vitiate knowledge
of facts, the concept of reality
hidden for all that and expressed as love.

Comments on this Poem

Comment Thanks for the excellent comment. I find some poets have an aversion to -ality/ –ability suffixed words being used at all in a poem, where the repetition is judged ‘jarring’ in rhyme; this is the fallacy of ‘non-poetic words’. One must use the right word, where it is the wrong word, of whatever sound or length of syllables, that causes the jar.

Also, 'the poet is metaphysical and searches for meaning' – The poem is about the metaphysical nature of reality, where science distinguishes the physical over the metaphysical to the exclusion of the latter. The identity form nature of existence proves its metaphysical basis, one that science utilises but does not acknowledge. The metaphysical basis of existence is to be expected with God as the creator; but God whose creative affection is manifested not in what is interpreted as scientific facts but in the metaphysical reality of love.

Comment Nature of Reality as a poem is built upon the linguistics of ality and ability suffixes which adds to as well as appears to be jarring, but whatsoever be that, the poet is metaphysical and searches for meaning. Thought and idea, concept and view have been dovetailed to reach the poetic effects.
