A brief journey
Taking us places
In the infinite spaces
Between the words

A Dragonfly
On a Lotus Flower
The inspiring power
Of flying birds

The right brain sings
Its mystical tune
A secret rune
The soul's pure voice

What it is
Is hard to say
It's better that way
There's no other choice

Hard to define, isn't it? ;-)

    I think it's direct, simple, and nice. My favorite stanza is the last one, because it captures my feelings about poetry. What's so romantically fascinating about poetry and art in general is the ambiguity of it all. That last stanza plainly describes why I value art over science, over politics; it comes the closest to satisfying the mysteries of life because it doesn't make explicit assertions or look for exact truths where there are only uncertainties. It accepts the vague quality of life from the human perspective at face value. But I suppose the vagueness itself is a consequence of our limited perspective. Anyways, great poem, I give it a 4/5 simply because I feel the rating system on this website isn't used appropriately by the users and thus it fails to accurately rate the quality and emotion of a work. That being said, the more mechanical-esque categories/systems of criteria that are imposed on art, the less unique the viewers reading list becomes. It kind of defeats what I felt you were trying to convey in the last stanza because it attempts to define the undefinable.
