LAWLESS

Essence

I am a fresh newborn baby

I am a curious, stumbling fawn 

The nature of the world has been 

revealed to me

I try to hold my balance on these feeble legs

A sense of discovery overwhelms me

The sun feeds my sprouting mind

The moon grasps my mercurial soul

This blissful course of events has 

opened my eyes

Once again the time has come to 

nourish the fabric of possibilities 

A limitless expanse lays before me

Uncharted waters to be explored 

Once again a new adventure begins

There will be no end for

this essence to comprehend

    I have to give you credit for your usage of the word "Mercurial." Very interesting.

    WOW!...

    I am blown away! your wisdom is far-reaching. these lines really got to me:

    revealed to me
    I try to hold my balance on these feeble legs
    A sense of discovery overwhelms me
    The sun feeds my sprouting mind
    The moon grasps my mercurial soul
    This blissful course of events has
    opened my eyes

    A fine write J. Erm, is too much thinking dangerous, as they say? Whoever 'they' are? heehee.
    Was there ever anything in my mind to think on, to start with?! lol.

    The last three lines are the very definition of the process of reincarnation, well and beautifully stated I might add. Kudos on this fine poem, James!

    Even though the poem could be interpreted in different ways that have nothing to do with babies, the first thought that jumped into my mind was: Now I finally know what babies think!
    Beautifully written poem that could relate to newborns, re-borns, even new-age, or people discovering themselves.

    Very good write, all new life starts on that journey into the vast unknown. May the exploration begin.
