The Portrait
In times of deep reflection
Or in peaceful solitude
In honest introspection
With an open attitude
And minimal attainment
Of the philosophic art
Alone I penetrate the veil
Of my elusive heart
In vivid inner imagery
Among the foul and fair
Not hindered by their blatancy
Nor philosophic air
I find revealed symbolically
In parcel and in part
The meaning and the mystery
Of my elusive heart
