  The Grand Limit of Love

The poetry of poetry
is the empty page.
The music of music
is the silence.
The painting of a
painting is the
blank canvass.
There is no escape
from the twin
tyrannies  of
inspiration and
imperfection.
(the Yin and Yang;
  order and chaos)
Perhaps as light vanishes
    into light
and shadows into darkness
our 'time' is but a mirage
lost in a dream within a dream;
and  the quintessential limit
of all 'art' and truth, that we
seek always to approach, in
this brief-candle life ...
    is perfect Love.

Whilst I don't agree with you, Bruce, about the "always" and whilst I think there is a tremendous amount more to life than love, this is nevertheless as beautiful as all your poetry and it is a perfect blend of pessimism and optimism, of the truth and hope of a part of the human psyche.
