Cogito Ergo Sum

Trees of autumn weep their beauty
Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth
Intellectual tears of
I think therefore I am
Cry molecules of philosophy
Over deaf grasses of high tech generations
I am the last leaf
Clinging desperately onto a rooted branch of
Cartesian thought



Pinch of Pepper:

Cogito ergo sum: Is classical Latin for I am thinking, therefore I exist or I think, therefore I am. It is a philosophical proposition made by René Descartes, a French philosopher of the 17th century. This proposition forms the foundation for all knowledge. While all things can be questioned as to whether they are from the Realm of the Real or a figment of one's imagination, the very act of questioning one's own existence serves as proof of the reality of one's own existence.

Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Sunset and Dusk / / At the edge of Earth sun beams sigh as / sky turns from wispy watercolor to rust / Mountains empty their melancholy minds over / moors mumbling pages of prose / Lost landscapes decompose as / Day dies in the arms of Du…
City of Avenues
Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Launched hatred tears into urban skies / Falling thunder pierces fleshed emotion / Hammurabian thought precipitates / Eye for an eye Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Atrophied molecules of amity die<b…
