I Keep Looking For More Beyond And Deep Inside And Out


i have often
believed in all of you

what you have written
amazed me endlessly

the enigma kept
the mysteries buried
underneath the wisdom
of your fragile
spirits

the world listens
attentively
but is not impressed

everything is just
superficial to its
layered wisdom
inside the wombs
of its oceans

you have often focused
on your fingers
where petals are dying
their mortal textures
their redness turning
into cracks of
brown pieces

i am tempted at times
to settle for all these
sweet concealment
spirits of men singing
what this world feels
with all fragile frills
and nod with all admission
that it is true
and yet it must not
be uttered
for fear that we can
be wrong too

for who is so certain
about what we feel?
for what we cannot
really say?

nimble and shivering
along the paths of stone
i keep looking for more
beyond and deep inside
and out

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
