RE: Restoration [Poetry]

in #ecotrain2 years ago

As you say, it is not the technology that is bad but the purpose for which it is used for. Lots of technologies are created with altruistic purposes behind it but those with the money to fund research and development often have different agendas from altruism and it is always about the bottom line.
That being said, i feel every human being deserves to live life to the utmost of their potential. If neural linking is what is needed for a child who cannot walk to be able to go to places he or she would not have been able to, then i am all for it. It will need regulation though and i hope there are better men and women at the helm of power who see lives instead of profit margins.

I absolutely agree. But, did you like my poem? :P xxx

Ooooh yes! lol. I guess i got carried away by the addendum. I love the first stanza especially. The flow of sounds and the use of enjambment makes it a beautiful thing on the tongue. The diction too is awesome. I don't think i have such scientific diction in my vocabulary. Nothing like a widely read poet to add spice to the genre. What's not to like?

Aw shucks thanks. Its nice to get feedback from a poet. Appreciate it!! I enjoyed the enjambment with this one.

I am glad i could be of help. The alliteration and assonance too was superb. I like it when i know that figures of speech in a poem are not deliberate but spontaneous. It tells me that the poet has an ear to the sounds, moods, subject of the poem without a deliberate attempt to create a poetic piece. Spontaneous overflow of powerful feeling and all that...

Me too. Poetry has to rise from the deeply felt otherwise it doesn't work. I spent too long on contrived device, rather than it just working.

I do like poetry that includes science.. my husband is a physicist, and there is poetry even in stars and atoms. Sometimes, like with this post, it takes a little research.

Haha! now i know the source of corpuscular and neural networking. lol. I rarely research anything. Scientific stuff makes my head ache. This is why i don't write as well as i should. I know i need to do research, read outside my comfort zone but i am creature of habit.
