New Poem – the perpetual riddle…

The perpetual riddle of life.


How a host of individual

Spiritual entities

Can be seemingly cast carelessly adrift

On a vast, ancient sea of neural messages

That is the collective unconscious.


Perhaps though,

Even when considered all together,

We are no more than an impulse,

A shiver in the breeze,

The merest hint of presence

In an echo of loneliness.


All unconsciously following

A starlit scatter trail of dreams

That one day might lead us

To a glorious point of transformation,

When the best of our psyches

Will fuse together like a thunderbolt.


Much as how long, long ago,

Just one piercing blow

From a Mayan tomahawk

Could smash a single skull asunder.

And thus make our world anew,

Shower it with enlightenment never ending.

    Life is a puzzle
    I put A, you put B
    We make together what would never be!
