The Simple Art of Wondering


The Simple Art of Wondering


Where would we all be without

the sun, sky and the sea ..

He enquired, ever so politely ..


Where would we all go without

the moon, rain and the snow ..

She answered, oh’ so curiously ..


Where would we all be without

such haunting questions as these ..

They each whispered simultaneously ..


We simply don’t know they agreed ..

But that was alright because

some things, are best left a mystery ..

      • L. B. Mek

        mysticism, an entity
        selfdom with universality
        poetic acuity
        worded so eloquently
        a read
        to treasure n study..
        thank you, Hyung

          Sometimes, science, medicine, psychology, philosophy, etc. take away from life's enjoyment by giving us the explanation for many of life's mysteries. For instance, we now know why the tides rise and lower, what the surface of the moon and Mars look like, and we predict the weather more reliably. These are all good things, but their old mysteries were far more entertaining.
          Your poem paints the same picture, "some things, are best left a mystery." I say, "Amen!" - Phil A.

            A nice writing like your words ))

            Couldn’t imagine missing the sky or the sea .. nature is too beautiful

            I think we’d be lost confused and very sad without that

            • Neville
