The things we see,
we rely upon like a sea
of emotions flooding our shores,
waves that toss our lives across
a horizon of indifference.
Yet why so important than if in one sweep
of fast moving passion,
our lives than become scrutiny,
theirs, not ours, them, the people,
outside of our comfort zone.
Those are the enigmas we’d rather not have to deal with
or any day for that matter,
but the immediacy is clear.
We have to suggest a methodical manner
toward finding a respectful attitude,
one that includes yet lets us depart
from all interactions with the pools,
schools of jelly fish together remain an obscure
delight, a visual procession of beauty,
yet one alone,
distant in the murky sea of illusion,
that perhaps might indicate,
a haunting reality follows every hope and dream
toward letting go,
for their beauty always remains near.
