A friend send me this poem . reminds me a lot of Hex 4 among other hex comes into mind.

Do you see 4? What others hex you see ? Care to share?



In Broken Images

He is quick, thinking in clear images;
I am slow, thinking in broken images.

He becomes dull, trusting to his clear images;
I become sharp, mistrusting my broken images,

Trusting his images, he assumes their relevance;
Mistrusting my images, I question their relevance.

Assuming their relevance, he assumes the fact,
Questioning their relevance, I question the fact.

When the fact fails him, he questions his senses;
When the fact fails me, I approve my senses.

He continues quick and dull in his clear images;
I continue slow and sharp in my broken images.

He in a new confusion of his understanding;
I in a new understanding of my confusion.

HI Maria
What a powerful piece of verse. Thank you for posting it.

There is an element of Hex 4 in this - the not knowing / ignorance.
The Hex's that also spring to mind are 63 and 64 the opposition of fixed order and infinite possibility.

In some odd way,this reminds me of Hex 2. The completely open attitude, that gives all things room to be what they are or will be. Totally receptive, and therefore with so much richness.

63. - 64.

He knows everything there is to know,
From After to Before.
He knows everything there is to know,
(Except that he's a bore).

FABULOUS poem. Thank you, Maria! :bows:

For me, it also resonates with 61/62.

Glad you like it. I found it awesome and though to share it.

Guess I put the wrong question. What hex this poem is not ;)

I see everything you mentioned here , also 6 as inner conflict, 38, 1,2, 12, 57, etc....
