The Endless Inquiry

Dear world,

Do you know-

Why flames burn deep in lover’s eye?

Why laurels drip in victor’s gold?

Or why a phoenix tail spreads ‘cross the sky,

then fades, like ashes ‘neath the smoldering moon?

Do you know-

How nature heals mankind’s divide?

How hearts in crimson spirit burn?

Or how hope ignites the darkened soul,

then blossoms, in a life that finds itself renewed?

Please tell me dear world both “why” and “how,”

For I gaze at oceans deep and ask-

What must I learn that others know?
