Treasure Island

Suzette Richards

(Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA)

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."
