Never Knowing Much

One moment allows the seeds opening crack and in that same
instant
grows a forest

How can we ever believe we know much?
Words serve those who use them like a
balm to threaten the quandary that works
like a pernicious blade
carving out the fear of

‘never knowing much’keeps me on my toes

this allowing for…

Not Knowing

silent sometimes I am till I just can’t hold my
hands down anymore.

I bolt out of the gate
I freak thinking I lost something a second ago

when what happened was
I birthed again
this new moment
growing far faster than I can ever keep up with.

So I stopped feeling loss and just put one foot in front of the other, sometimes I put blinders on
so I don’t tell you what you should feel.

For I’ve discovered

feeling

is as close to anything

I’ll ever ‘know’ for sure.

    Lina, you offered me today a moment of sheer beauty with your words, all the while humbly pondering over the two sides of knowing: feelings and thoughts, life and its opposite. Thank you for the evocative and tender moment.
    Pure pleasure to read you inside out and back.
