The common reader – a few words

The common reader doth not see.
What he sees is unknown.
Because the common reader doth not see.
He never sees.

He sees no color either. Paris, June 2020. ©le_chah_errant

Nay, the common reader doth not see.
What he sees is unknown.
Color is not to see. It is to be seen.
And so the common reader doth not see.

The lines above are improvised. The photo above that has absolutely nothing to do with the text, except that it attracts, moth to a flame. The lines above the photo are the real text. Written several weeks ago or two weeks ago. I can’t keep track. This year has no head. It has no tail. Let me know this –

What does the common reader do?  I will collect the answers and compile them. ❤️

    The common reader looks, but does not see…they acknowledge the lines but not what lies in between, above or below them. The common reader does not see and hence they do not feel. And if they do not feel then they cannot feel. And if they cannot feel they will never understand all that is lost to them, common and uncommon, in the blind and empty life they stumble through, hurtling towards ignorant ruin….

      That is interesting insight. Looking is another way of describing it. How we look is very different depending on what we are looking at.

  2. I love you words…I love spontaneity and improvisation, that is why I love jazz…and time, well time is a word used to describe what no one really understands because there are things that are not part of our intellectual world, they belong to another world that many people don’t see and that lately many people are denying, which is the spiritual world (and I am not talking about religion)…Lovely post, enjoyed it enormously.

      Thank you. Ahh time, little force of destruction but reconstruction. Intellect is a special world, sometimes misunderstood. But is it common? That’s an idea.
