I’d Rather Learn You

I haven’t read them all,
but I sure have read a few,
Socrates and Plato,
Nargajuna and Descartes,
Mill, Hume and Whitehead
not forgetting Marx,
and my, Zizek’s such fun,
they stir the moribund mind
though a little less than poets do
because Rumi stirs my soul,
but I’d rather learn you
than read all the libraries that are
because my, you stir my heart.

  2. such a vivid image of a soul being stirred just flashed into my head. like stirring a spoon of chocolate into a glass of milk, only the chocolate is a transparent rainbow and the milk is bright yellow-white light…
