Gwen: This poem seems to deny ephemera, yet isn't it within the nugatory that the noetic lies?
Carlos: (surprised) Huh? What planet do you come from?
Orapan: I think what Carlos is trying to say is that there are many things beyond our small understanding.
Noel: (laughing). Look: many people around the world are starving. Why are you are chatting about poetry?
Orapan: Well, sometimes poetry reminds us of things that make life worth living. However, if you wish to be a revolutionary hero, fine!
Gwen: Yeah – go ahead and try to make the world better. However, do not disparage poetry!
Noel: (cynically). Well, this talk is useless! Besides, I think I will "make the world better" by drinking a nice cold beer!
Illumination Foreseen - an art work by T Newfields
What we are today
is but a fraction of what we could be

The heart has more geometries
than we've dared to see

We are flickering candles
in a star-studded night

The illumination we now produce
could be infinitely more bright

We are meant to shimmer strongly
& shine with luminosity!

Why tinker with ephemera
when there are countless discoveries?

Rejoice as swarming moths
against the candlelight of eternity!

Through conscious intention
be radiant & bright

Breath softly & remember –
the universe is filled with light
