Eternity’s Breach

Eternity's Breach
Eternity’s Breach

How certain we are in our arrogant stances, thinking we know so much, searching for those elusive answers to the questions that plague our dreams. Yet in nature’s eyes, we are a joke, so uniquely misconstrued our view, we chase our tails like a bewildered dog. Perhaps we should just listen and observe a little more, see what nature in its perfection knows already…

Eternity’s Breach
Disparity laps upon the shore,
while hilarity stands covertly behind swaying palms,
seeing the blind confusion in the room,
as inequality the sum of all the extremes we consume,
and then judge to be wrong.

Nature’s honed eyes see much more,
and with a wry grin, cannot help but
find amusement in human bemusement,
living between truth and lie,
constructing spires into the sky, for heaven’s connection.

The sands upon the beach of life are all the souls
lost to themselves in the quest of searching,
yet they search for who they are,
not some reflection of hallowed stars,
voicing approval for their human upheaval.

As the sun plays shadow games
and shells with life within, sit motionlessly
awaiting the tides to swallow them,
driftwood honed from storms and artistic ploys
lie in elegant stances, poised to be.

And gulls squawk in a symphony,
watching the flighted thoughts of human plight,
bantering with joy and strife
to be left wanting in a parade of beauty,
seeking absolution for their folly.

And as tides rise and revoke their yield,
thoughts no grander than before
flail in nature’s certainty,
and human eyes squandered in the coping,
peer aimlessly into eternity’s breach.

    We most certainly can learn a lot from nature. Very nicely penned verse, Tony. Well done indeed. Take care.

    What is this Ego business? No logic in it. I battle between my belief in striving for an egoless existence and the ego drive that is necessary to keep the family a float and achieve monetary goals. I have been thinking about how the creative process can reach maximum potential if ego is removed from the process. (The process not the creation.) Well whether this is true or not it is an interesting thought. Jamie

    Ego is a necessity of living, yet many become self-centred and so imbalanced to cause themselves and others chaos. We should be the master of our persona and our honest representation rather than our ego ruling our every choice. Otherwise, we become narcissistic and judgemental and blame everyone for our own failings. Balance is of great importance. Thanks, Jamie and take care, my friend.
