Quest To Unfurl Life's Hidden Message

- By Vaughan Jones -


Pondering on life and the ways of this world,
Wondering whether I'd e'er find it unfurled.
I'm delving, digging researching far and wide,
Reading extensively, researching none aside;
Coming close, never finding the truth or source
Of all existence; the reason for our course.
I dig deep within myself, searching my soul,
Only to discover more doubts on my role.
Tiring of this extensive, grueling life quest
For truth continues to allude my behest.
Pondering on life and the ways of this world,
Wondering whether I'd e'er find it unfurled.

I stroll through the forest, absorbing free life,
Smelling the foliage, natural fragrance is rife,
I taste the crystal clear water, totally fresh,
Flowing in the stream that runs through the mesh.
Fully refreshed, newly invigorated.
All's well with my body, feeling well fated,
I sit on a rock, hands upturned, open wide
To center my energies, thoughts put aside,
In meditative spirit state I reside;
Pondering on life and the ways of this world,
Wondering whether I'd e'er find it unfurled.

In looking up at the heaven's deep void cask,
In the blue illusion of the day I bask.
The Sun radiates warmth and light to Earth's realm,
Nature and our solar system at the helm.
Photosynthesis generates life in plants,
Cosmic energies radiate not perchance,
And birds pollinate, bees buzzing from their hives.
Moonlight's illusion, the romance for all lives,
Lunar path tugs and shoves to control Earth's tide.
Yet in awe I still wonder, eyes open wide;
Pondering on life and the ways of this world,
Wondering whether I'd e'er find it unfurled.
