We think we know so very much
but truly we know next to nothing.
For every new discovery made
will at some later [higher] stage
be overturned or altered by another.
The smallest particle so far known
to humans in this wondrous world
is only that which has been seen till now;
(microscopic limitations standing in-between).
There must be even smaller ones to know
within this effervescent sparkle show.
Why can’t it just be simple?
We laugh. We love. We let.
So just forget the ersatz needs
or any other bogus thought
which feeds or strokes our
ego’s ghostly cheek. No need
for expectations of what
others shouldly do or bring
or sing for love can harness
nothing ever but the wind.
The truly honeyed parts of life for me
are in the glimpses gifted to the soul.
For as I age they come more frequently —
shattering shafts of light which make us whole.
If you’re intrigued to know what these could be
(to know what curtains angels may remove)
they only flap them briefly so we see
what lies beyond all words (their world to prove).
As summer dies so beauty fully
with her sigh (sforzandolike)
and autumn’s golden smirk
falls silently as homeless leaves
drift rocking side-to-side and down
to earthen featherbedly end-of-ride
i smile through tears which mingle
with the lightsome lazy mist of dawn
