Wilde Observations #11

A tossed salad of art, poetry and ideas.

Profile B: A Posthumous Reflection. Acrylic on panel by the author.

‘Know thyself’ was written over the portal of the antique world.
Over the portal of the new world, ‘Be thyself’ shall be written.
Oscar Wilde

Once Upon a Time

We remember dimly
the risen, red-rimmed orb,
flickering ever so tentative, trembling,
the torch of a New Humanity
striving upward
toward its appointed place.

Our wrinkled memories frail,
no finger-strength to hold
those magic moments
where, dream and vision conceived,
the seed was planted for all
we hoped and believed.

March 3, 1994
