Phemomenons and a Poem

Phenomenons: An occurrence, circumstance, or fact that is perceptible by the senses.

Here's a poem I wrote a few years ago. It is one of my painted poem series and will be included in my manuscript for Intangible Instruments.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“The will is not free. It is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect but there is something behind the will which is free.”
Swami Vivekananda

“Life is a brief, small, and transitory phenomenon in an obscure corner, not at all the sort of thing that one would make a fuss about if one were not personally concerned.”
Bertrand Russell

“Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.”
Maria Montessori
