Then Understand


Rainbows of hope endlessly span in the ether vast
Effortlessly redoubling in voids' empty caverns
Every thought entwined, lacking innate freedom

Illumination grandiosely illustrated to a select audience
Captivated in the auspicious moment of success
Impressing no one with odious jargon
And theses absorbed through ever pouring over scrolls
A mind inundated with alien concepts

Anew the intricate webs influence the inner psyche
Arrows carelessly aimed, fired at Cupid's aura
Finding a willing entrance to a yearning, aching heart

Embracing the agreement to eternal life in the unconditional love offered
Confucius: "I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I then understand."

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
