Hidden memories, a picture or a phrase 
floats up from the depth of my consciousness,
before I can grab a pen they sink back;
how much I seek I shall never find,
what it was 
    A pre- birth memory before words 
and meaning was invented glued to the soft 
membrane of the unborn, trying to articulate 
the unspoken. 

Veiled memories must be sensed if I want 
know anything about a world beyond 
the world that cannot be understood by logic. 

I must feel the forgotten, see the beauty 
of a rose hidden in the woods 
where only the bravest dare tread.
