Sleepless Wonder

Inquisitive minds
Of any kind
 
             ....Loom...
 
In dark rooms
Until they bloom
 
Into bright places
Flourishing in light spaces
 
Upon UN-crowded happiness
Far too few find it …. Unless….
 
They leave the herd they travel with
 
And leave to the past old time
And the future that at present does not exist
 
The illusions that create the current emptiness
 
Only then can rigid thoughts bend
Like color bows
               To a hidden pot of gold
                                             …Or buried gem
 
                                                          Discover… INgenious
                                                          Discover… YOUr best
 
It’s different for each
It’s not the fad of Everyday Street
 
As much as we are one
We are merely a piece
                               …unique
 
Inquisitive mind listen to an inner greatness speak
It’s not outside of you
 
It’s below your crown
And above your sole
 
Stop wandering
               Stop wondering

Search your soul

    Lovely, Enjoyable read. Style is well done. Good free verse is hard to find. Victoria PS thanks for the comment on Job int in Africa I was trained in journalism-- learned to be brief! when writing use as few words as possible..it's a personal challenge!(unless I am telling a yarn!)
