Mystery

 
We might
wait watch
and wonder

when the world
weighs
too weary

forage
in the
forest

walk darkling
woods
alone

*

There’s relish
in the
pathless

gratuity
in the
moors

solace in
the hillside
bare

rapture
in the
mists

*
The Invisible
hides
its visage

from
temples
and our
towers

but makes
itself
apparent

within those
derelict
bowers

*

We have wrought
such
prisons

as
incarcerate
the soul

enchain the
living
spirit

splintering
the
whole

*

In
raw terrors
of nature

in her fury
fire and
wake

stars
erupt
exploding

galaxies
shudder
and quake

*
In
superambient
universe

we’re less than
specks of
dust

nature
hugs
her secrets

mystery
broods upon
her crust

*

When knowing
is nigh
impossible

were it not
simpler whence
to trust?

I ask
if we may
I do not say
we must
