Between the Parentheses

Mindcamp Random

Here’s one participant’s poetic response to this year’s theme. What’s yours?

* * *

Between the parentheses
Everything that five senses can offer
I would put now between the parentheses
(.)
The apparent emptiness outside
is
intrinsically
universal experience
that we should look for,
listen to,
smell,
taste,
get in touch with.

  1. Here is my take:

    From an intercultural standpoint, the parentheses indicates the uniqueness of each of us even though we are all part of the same wider human family. The asterisk reminds us that these individual differences or traits are important and should be explored further in order to gain a deeper understanding of the person.
