Whirling ~ Divine Frenzy

in reverie, in silence, in the wake of a dream
visions beyond what is of the waking mind
thoughts go beyond continuity and reason
colors as expressions of spirit
lines as paths to the calling soul
words as echoes of the heart
this the enfold
the embrace of what is to manifest
gestures in quest
a palette that beckons
words to be held anew
a divine frenzy
the surreal free to be itself
galaxies in flowing swirls
whirling PRESENCE
man woman all that IS

And so my purposes defined...

"A story is told according to which Saint-Pol-Roux, in times gone by, used to have a notice posted on the door of his manor house in Camaret, every evening before he went to sleep, which read: THE POET IS WORKING." Surrealism, Andre Breton, 1924

Paul-Pierre Roux, called Saint-Pol-Roux (15 January 1861, quartier de Saint-Henry, Marseille - 18 October 1940, Brest) was a French Symbolist poet. Saint-Pol-Roux equally created the notion of "idéoréalisme". He desired an artistic fusion between the real world and the world of ideas, in a Neoplatonic perspective. Neoplatonism combined ideas from Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, and the Stoics with oriental mysticism. It envisages the human soul rising above the imperfect material world through virtue and contemplation toward knowledge of the transcendent ONE. He imagined a cosmology in which Beauty - lost in the real world - has to be revealed by the poet.
