Reason told a secret to them
Surprises surrounded all
Wonder breathed a sigh
Ignorance watched in awe
Waves of doubt and fear
Raging stories no one wanted to hear
In space of time they entered the temple
To hear and see all they were in fear of
To settle and say the way of the mind
Searching they looked eager to find
To find and to hold and if that was too bold
They would cry and run to find the sun
Sun’s surround they sought to find
To delve into the world of kind
To see to say to ask to tell
No wonder lost to this marvelous spell

They say the art of life is in knowing
Knowing the ways and means of life
Life sings its needs to all around
Around us all in time songs abound
Abound in ways we watch and marvel
Marvel because we do not know
Know the ways and means of life
Life is where we venture with care
Care because we often do not dare
Dare to learn the ways and means
Means by which we could know more
More words I would prevail to write
Write tonight to say some more
More is where I was just writing
Writing I will do no more – tonight…

Wonderful write Paul!
I so much enjoy reading you here.
You are growing as a writer in giant leaps m'friend.
Hugs~

    In the midst of winter..
I found there lives within me,
    an invincible summer.
