Questioning …

Why do I crave to know the unknown

when all has been revealed?

The future flies on the wings of sparrows;

the source of beauty lies

in the indolence of lilies ..

The truth is unsealed ..

I am blinded by complexity like the compound eyes of a fly.

Simplicity is a simple key ..

sand, sea, sky … the sibilant similes of eternity … .

    Hello again, Shermeen … thank you so much. I was concerned that the sounds might be too sibilant, in fact, so your words reassure me 🙂 I suppose there is nothing quite as sibilant as the sounds of the surf.

  3. I want to express my modeste appreciation, again and again, poetess, Marya….
