Askok, yes, the natural path is knowingness first, then knowledge...the full power of - intent. Bringing the unstructured self to the tonal or structured. Very well penned, indeed.

From a Christian perspective, this poem says stand your ground when temptation comes around!

The 'power to dismiss', as facilitating, in addition to being 'validated' by, the 'choice to receive', choice being a meaningless concept where there is only one (no) choice :). The poetry in this piece given 'life' by the personalisation of 'Dawn', bearing metaphors...

This is an amazing verse filled with color and meshing that color with nature and our being. As usual, you make me think and by thinking I am made better. Great read.

Although I have been here before, your words have taken on a different hue this time around - a natural turn, and one by which I do not feel in any way threatened :) The refusal to yield, a step towards retreat from an unnatural condition - the contrast encapsulated in the first stanza broke upon me anew. Poetry becomes you Ashok :)

“Just BE, stuck to your seat
If you have the choice to receive
You have the power to dismiss” ... great words, indeed, which led up to a beautiful ending. Congratulations on your POTD.

Ah, what a lovely piece. You had my imagination totally captured throughout. I love the Dawn imagery. Staying put and present in the now is both a challenge and a gift for me. I love reading your poems because it gives me a chance to walk gently across the oceans and continents and linger a while in your wonderful land with a people so soaked with wisdom. Thanks, Ashok.
