Re: Analytic Mind and Poetry
There are many tracks one could follow. At first sight, without much synthesis:

the Mind the heart and the play on lights dawn-> dark-> sun/shadows and then rain without forgetting the interception of light which also seems paramount .
Twisted reality / the veil :the veil as a shield from the outer light the outer reality which looks like a harmful thing. The veil as a mirror which enables one to go through a personal and inner experience of reality. A painful ( twist!! sacrifice) and yet necessary experience for the individual. Should one forsake that hostile world ( death of the sun (son ?) failed generation )? or is there a glimpse of hope ' interception of light'?
The aspectual temporal aspect : dichotomy bt'ween past and present. ( memory- generation destiny)
The part of the I-woman .. as the disillusioned mother, the free girl-woman ( naked dancing an inner dance ) a woman, free in the shadow or is she a shadow herself ?
There are many other fields which could be explored . Perhaps,those shouldn't be unveiled yet.
