Sensibility – to Empathy

A question . . .

Isn’t it sensibility which
regulates our lives
affects our observation
impacts our experiences
 writes autobiographies
 colors experiences including
 others’ life stories

While biology might
determine natural capacity  
for this valuable receptivity
isn’t it nonetheless necessary
to know this progressive
developmental aspect of
much consequence.

One-Liner-Wednesday: on “darkness” failings

Let’s call human “darkness” human failings instead, for until a sense of responsibility entails our actions there cannot be human progress.


Written for one-liner-Wednesday, prompted by Linda G. Hill, via Fandango.

A quote about human tendency to dismiss conscious actions as supernatural affectations, and the limiting of human potential.

Scapegoat ritual, an encyclopedic topic

As beautiful

As dangerous

As nature

Suppose our conduct natural, as our beating sun   
affected perhaps as any / creature subjected to
emittance of radiation, more contamination

Drones find our proximity / to the ant, and others
burrowing, largely absent our attention and
little mind of our presence / except occasional
run-ins, hunts, or culls; self-preservation or thrill

Choose an adventure, each a distinct take
our involvement: learning like animals albeit
different, separate: kind—at times; also like
them in their / environmental state / occupied

Such poetry persists, beyond boundaries of time
which window this is—whether others exist—remains
mysterious: the question of our age.
