G.R. Gaus (April 11 1950 / St. Louis)
Such a simple thing to understand,
But no one really knows,
Flow through life, nothing planned,
Resting in repose.
Ne’er experience to be without,
The cup is always full,
Laughing at the thought of doubt,
Nothing left to cull.
No boundaries here to hold on,
Relief from all the pressure,
Bad memories in the foregone,
Everywhere, a kindly gesture.
Just a thought, a word or phrase,
With power let unbound,
Healing in so many ways,
True meaning yet profound.
Without conditions, free from law,
Total lack of fear,
Ne’re the slightest chance of flaw,
Eternity lives here.
