Puttering in the Mind

Today I thought of thought itself,
of all its joys and failings
to be sure, but mostly of the
wonder that they take me to,
the countless things that open
to my sight in ways that I had
never seen before.

I need not die before I see them
thunder in before me, even though
I know that death itself will not
presume to shut them down. That is
the glory of it; everyone may share.
Saints and kings will prosper
and will fall. Perhaps.  But I
am just a dilettante. My putterings
are little miracles and always there
to take me through.

Oh yes, there is one caveat
and that is consciousness
but that too is a miracle
and floats upon us as a lagniappe,
totally gratuitous...hmmm
just like all the rest.

    Your thoughts are so deep. At times too deep for me. Some new words that beg to be looked up. Couldn't arrive at them through context clues...or maybe I'm just slow today. Anyway...dropped by to say hello. It's nice to be so wise, Robert.

    Robert, I think your muse may be contagious!
