Title: The Mystery we call life
Post by: Letitia De Lockhart on 03 August 2007, 21:30:41
Introduction: Still being written. Sorry I used the same question format as my last poem, I have been having real trouble getting words down on paper recently.


The Mystery we call life


Have you ever tasted the sweetness in a burning spice?
Have you ever tasted the fiery heat in snow and ice?
Have you ever tasted the thickness in pure water?
Have you ever tasted the rarest in all there is to offer?

Have you ever smelt the sea in the middle of a desert?
Have you ever smelt a rose scent locked away in prison?
Have you ever smelt the freshest air in a blazing fire?
Have you ever smelt the world’s aroma in one sniff?

Have you ever felt love when the heart has gone awry?
Have you ever felt the softest touch on a dagger edge?
Have you ever felt the truest of all emotions in a second?
Have you ever felt the end is near when it has all just begun?

Have you ever heard a voice when it does not speak?
Have you ever heard a call when no one wants you?
Have you ever heard a scream when no one is scared?
Have you ever heard nothing when there is sound all around?

Have you ever seen light when so far away from life?
Have you ever seen water when the world is stone dry?
Have you ever seen familiars through a stranger’s eye?
Have you ever seen yourself in the mystery we call life?

That sounds nice Letitia!

What I'm longing for here however is an answer to your questions, maybe a stanza after each question stanza or all at the end. In this answer you could weave something Santharian for now your poem has no relation to this world at all.

Have you ever tasted the sweetness in a burning spice?
Have you ever tasted the fiery heat in snow and ice?
Have you ever tasted the thickness in pure water?
Have you ever tasted truth if the world is a lie?

Yes, I have tasted a (insert Santharian meal)
and endured the fires of (let's invent an volcano in the very north)*
I have drunk the waters of
and

Well, the last line doesn't fit too well to the first three...


*the Norong'sorno's top is snowcovered as well, so you could take this volcano.

Thank you for the suggestion Talia, that sounds like a great idea, I will get right to it. But would you mind please directing me to where I can find the Santharian cook book. Just so I can see if there are any dishes that would be suitable to put as an answer to the first line.

Not too easy to find, I agree..

you can find some receipts on the main site if you go to the icons on the top left and chose this sack, click it and the you have the leftmenu of the Misccellaneous. There you will  find a category Food and Drinks. Art should set a link to the cookbook from there as well.

The cookbook you find if you go back to the icons, click on swap menu and you will find this treasure box, click it and the last on the menu list is receipts and cookery
:)

Okay I have seriously been trying to get all that done, but I really do not see how some of those questions can be answered. Actually I suppose the fact that it called "The mystery we call life" speaks for itself really. Mysteries must have unanswered questions; otherwise they are no longer mysteries. Mysteries are meant for people to judge themselves.

I would just like to share my deepest apologies for the rescent unannounced absence. The reason I would really rather not speak of, basically a few family problems. Again I am very sorry.

No need to apologise, Letitia.


To your poem: There is not the slightest hint, that it is a poem written for Santharia, you could post it everywhere and nobody would ask, what is this?

Decipher has idea!

Make it a poem to illustrate how mortals cannot comprehend the thoughts of the gods- Perhaps showing them the infinite possiblities of The Gods/The Dream?
