Enigmas

Hidden within Precambrian rock
Lies "a tiny mystery"
A veiled secret in the dark
A puzzling piece of history
A radioactive photograph
A polonium halo possibly

Buried in a cryptic curtain
Its secret may elude us
But what's certain
Should we presume to solve this riddle
We'll be hurled back in the middle
Of more dilemmas or enigmas endlessly



Published in the 2012 International Who's Who in Poetry

    Striking, the distance between enigma and time. Jon, very good write indeed. It brought me to another place I can't explain in my minds, I like to think I have seen as you did while putting it to words. However, these are dilemmas I wish not to think of....Thanks..always~ Linda

    A tiny mystery; well I don't know about that. Maybe it's better to leave things as they are. Than somebody else might think different. Thanks for sharing.... Lucilla

    Indeed, I am sure there will be many explanations for this phenomenon. For man is such a curious creature that he will never stop trying to unravel the mysteries of the universe
