I knew what happened, but did they?
Did they understand sheer perfection?
No!  All they knew was to blame
Innocence….behind that screen

Do we ever know, or see, with our ears

It’s time, to folly along great lakes of mire

To be, as it is assigned true meaning

For in that moment, of forest cover

Comes inanimate matter

Just a vision

Tapping into a proclamation of life’s stir

I had been left to squirm behind a lens

Knowing, ever so knowing, right after birth

A lair of infinite beauty, some wheel speaks
definition

While the babe lays unto a particular time

It is seen before, then comes alive

I waited for that bus to reach out

Searching for clarity….fitting together

Like an introduction to magic

The mouth of a book opens wide

As we sign our name, there are signs

That come out to play and rhyme

I read this several times trying to discern your poem, trying to force it into some kind of preconceived notion. The more I read it the more I enjoyed each line one by one individually. And then I let your poem take me on it's journey, looking forward to each line as I came to it. Cool thought provoking images filled my head and I enjoyed the trip.

Thanks much for attempting, although, I could never reveal what this one means, it is and was an extremely private experience...

Hugs....
